NSU gets Old Line Ave school 

After months of court battling, 
NSU has won the title to the 
property where the Old Line Ave. 
school sits in Shreveport. NSU 
acquired the property in order to 
construct a $6 million nursing 

But in a surprise move, NSU 
president, Rene Bienvenu said that 
he has directed architects to plan the 
construction of the new nursing 
facility without demolishing the old 
Line Avenue School. Preser- 
vationists in Shreveport have been 
fighting NSU in order to keep the 
old building from being demolished. 

Asked why he suddenly decided 
not to tear down the school, which 
stood in the way of the new facility, 
Bienvenu replied, "We have a lot of 
friends in Shreveport and some may 
be interested in the property." 
Bienvenu has refused to use NSU 
capital outlay funds to restore the 
old school. "I don't want to let it 
fall, but I refuse to put nursing 
funds into it. I hope the people with 
the loud mouths will go to Baton 
Rouge and get funds for it." said 

Caddo District Judge John 
Ballard recently upheld NSU's 
ownership of the vacant school, 
which is on the 2.9-acre site pur- 
chased by the university for con- 
struction of a classroom and ad- 
ministration complex for its College 
of Nursing in Shreveport. 

In announcing tnat the historic 
building will not be demolished, 
Bienvenu said, "We can sympathize 
with the group in Shreveport which 
wanted to preserve the Line Avenue 
School, but we also concur with 
architects, engineers, and our oun 
professional personnel who advise 
us that it is not desirable to include 
the building in plans for the new 
nursing complex that will avert 
demolition of the Line Avenue 

Bienvenu explained that original 
Plans called for the new College of 
ursing facility to face Line 
venue, where the red brick 
hoolhouse is located, but the 
roject will be re-designed to face 
lizabeth Street. 
This will allow us to consolidate 
Host of the College of Nursing 
academic and administrative 
Programs under one roof, which we 
felt was essential," Bienveu said. 
The university will also retain its 
lursing facilities at nearby 
Harrington Place. 

Bienvenu said although the Line 
Avenue School is being retained, 
there are no present plan$ for 
utilization of the building. "It is 
hoped that in the future, utilization 
°f the Line Avenue School will be 
feasible," he said. 

Stating that keeping the Line 
Avenue School on the property and 
r e-designing the nursing complex 
'places serious limitations on 
Parking facilities at the Nurshing 
School," Bienvenu said the 
University "is optimistic that 
trough the cooperation of the 
Chamber of Commerce and others 
ln Shreveport, additional property 

will become available to eliminate 
these problems." 

Northwesterrl obtained the Line 
Avenue School' property from the 
Caddo Parish School Board and 
retained ownership in a series of 
court hearings resulting from efforts 
to preserve the architectural land- 

Bienvenu emphasized that the 
university purchased property which 
had been for sale for eight years and 
that efforts to block Northwestern 's 
right to the tract "arose only after 
the university completed 
negotiations for purchase of the 

The NSU president said he is 

pleased "that the court has taken 
action wheh will allow us to proceed 
with the planning and construction 
of the new College of Nursing 
facility and that we at Northwestern 
have been able to make the decisions 
to carry out the project without the 
demolition of the Shreveport 

Northwestern has some 650 
nursing students and a faculty and 
staff of 80 in Shreveport, and 
Bienvenu said the NSU nursing 
facility at Warrington Place "is 
simply no longer adequate to 
provide the proper training for our 

Bored? You shouldn't be 

By Mary Beth Walls

Well, y'all, summer is here, and 
with it, everything that these hot, 
dry months may bring. Summer is a 
time for school for many of us. But 
what else? Is there time for many 
other things, and what things are 
there time for? Is summer boredom 
a big problem for many people 
here? What can people do when 
they get bored? These are some of 
the questions we came up with one 

To start off with, Northwestern is 
not one of the most active places 
during the summer. Excluding all 
the cheerleader, football, basket- 
ball, student council, etc. camps and 
clinics NSU has become famous for, 
there just are not that many people 
around, especially living on campus. 
But just because the campus is not 
teeming with people twenty-four 
hours a day does not mean life has 
to be dull. There are more than 
enough things to do, but they do not 
always fall into your lap and say 
"Here I am-do something!" 

A fair number of students I talked 
with do not have time for much else 
besides studying and going to class. 
Seriously. Some people here this 
summer are taking 12 or 14 hours of 
regular, working classes. And some 
of those classes are bad enough in a 
reular semester, much less in a short 
summer session when everyone 
(including the instructor) would 
probably rather be doing something 

Those seminar-type classes .which 
sound so good before registration 
("Man, the teacher hardly ever 
shows up, and classes never last 
more than twenty minute:*") do not 
carry the same tone once it is f ound 
out that those twenty minutes in 
class are but a minor part-the major 
part is the long, numerous hours 
spend in the library writing up-teen 
research papers. Sounds like a 
barrel of monkeys, right? 

A few poor souls are taking 
combined courses such as physics 
203 and 204, where one whole 
course is taught in June, and the 

other in July. That does not leave 
time for much of anything, 
especially sleep. Taking course such 
as these may seem to be a crazy 
thing to do, but it is one way to get a

One killed, 
five injured 
in jeep wreck 

One student was killed and five 
other students were injured on June 
10, when the jeep they were riding in 
went out of control and overturned 
in a ditch on Highway 1 bypass. 

Killed in the accident was Terry 
V. Bundrick, 18, from Calvin 
Louisiana. Bundrick along with 
Lynn E. Thomas, 20, of Natchi- 
toches, were taken to Shreveport, 
but while enroute to Shreveport, the 
ambulance broke down. Bundrick 
died enroute. 

Also injured in the accident was 
Kerry L. Stevenson 18, of 
Goldonna, who was driver of the 
jeep; Lisa James, 19, of Boyce; 
Tammy Duplechine, 18, of Kender; 
and Greg Carpenter, 18, of Calvin. 

Stevenson sustained severe in- 
juries and was taken to an 
Alexandria hospital. 

Thomas was listed in serious 
condition at LSU Medical Center. 
There is no word on her present 

James and Duplechin suffered 
severe injuries and remained at the 
Natchitoches Parish Hospital. 
Carpenter was treated for minor 
injuries and released. 

The accident occured about 8:20 
p. m., when the jeep overturned on 
the bypass near the Cane River 
Company Lounge. According to 
police, the jeep was attempting to 
turn in to the entrance of the lounge 
at a high rate of speed, when the 
accident occured.

The first annual Natchitoches 
Folk Festival will be presented this 
coming weekend at Prather 
Coliseum, and visitors to the 
festival can expect two days of 
goodtimes as artists, musicians, and 
craftsmen throughout the region 
present their own unique type of 
folk art. 

The festival, which goes from 10 
a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 
Sunday, plus special Folk Music 
Show and Dance at 8 p.m. Saturday 
night, is a first for the Natchitoches 
area. The festival will salute cotton 
and the impact it has had upon this 

The festival is sponsored by the 
Louisiana Folklife Center of NSU, 
and will attempt to present materials 
of the many cultures that have made 
this region of the state so 
historically rich. Dr. Donald W. 
Hatley, Director of the. Folklife 
Center, will be directing the festival. 
Robert Scott and Bryan Reeder are 
the festival managers. Jim Johnson 
who is managing the public relations 
of the festival states the festival has 
been mentioned nationwide. 

Clifford Blake, Sr. of Nat- 
chitoches will be the highlight of the 
festival. Blake, who retired in 1969 
after 30 years as cotton-compress 
caller, will demonstrate the famous 
compress calls, which regulated the 
actions of the men who worked the 
compress. Blake has just finished 
an album, "Cornbread for Your 
Husband and Biscuits for Your 
Man" which has produced by the 
Folklife Center. 

Melissa Mock, the 1980 Maid of 
Cotton, from Altus, Okla. will also 
be on hand to salute the cotton 
industry. There will also bo several 
photo displays and exhibits con- 
cerning the industry.

black-eyed peas, German breads, 
Spanish Indian tamales, soul food

crafts. Don't miss any of them. 

The festival is probably the 
biggest event this year at NSU, and 
hundreds of guests from all over the 
country are expected to attend. In 
fact, the festival is expected to 
become a major summer tourist 
attraction. Tickets for the festival 
are $2 for adults, NSU students who 
are attending the summer session at 
the Natchitoces campus only, will be 
allowed in free upon presenting a 
current summer ID, this also applies 
to the Saturday night music show. 
Adult tickets for the Saturday night 
show are $2 per person, $3 per 
couple. So come on down to the 
coliseum, it should be a fine time for 

NSU students who are currently 
attending the Natchitoches campus 
for the summer session and hold an 
ID with the summer sticker, will be 
allowed in to the Natchitoches Folk 
Festival free, upon presenting their 
ID at the door. 

This came about last Tuesday 
night when the Student Union 
Governing Board (SUGB) gave the 
NSU Folklife Center $600 to allow 
the students in for free. Before this 
action by the SUGB, students were 
to pay $1 to get in to the festival. 
Students will also be allowed in to 
the Saturday night music show for 

Adult tickets cost $2 for the 
festival, $2 per person for the 
Saturday night show and $3 per 
couple for the Saturdav nieht show. 

Children 10-years-old and under 
will be allowed in free also. 

Also concerning the festival, 
student volunteers are still needed to 
help run the folk festival, which will 
be going on this coming Saturday 
and Sunday. 

According to Dr. Donald Hatley, 
the festival director, volunteers are 
needed to be responsible for such 
duties as security, tickets, sound, 
rest area for participants, nurse 
station, clean-up, record sales, 
concessions, instrument security, 
artisan and food booths, and 
marshaling exhibits and treasuries. 
Volunteers will work for about three 
hours each day.

La Vere's Report 

Unfair evaluations? 

Recently the NSU faculty un- 
derwent performance evaluations by 
the Administration. Basically, the 
administration would evaluate the 
performance of each faculty 
member during 1979 and each 
member would be rated on their 
performance. Those who were 
awarded high ratings would then be 
in line for merit salary increases. 

Sounds good, right? Faculty 
members were to fill out a per- 
formance list, outlining their ac- 
tivities in the areas of, teaching; 
research, scholarship and creative 
work activities; internal service 
activities; and public service ac- 
tivities. The faculty would also fill 
out a self-evaluation form. 

From there, the faculty member 
would be evaluated by the depart- 
ment head, who would then get with 
the dean. The dean then presents the 
reports and evaluations to the Vice- 
President of Academic Affairs, who 
then submitts the evaluations to to 
the Merit and Promotion Advisory 
Council. The evaluations are made 
and are passed to the President for 
final approval or change. 

Well, the faculty member is 
evaluated on a - 4 scale. - 
inadequate, 1 - adequate, 2 - good, 3 

commendable, and 4 
distinguished. Categories 3 and 4 
usually carry a merit raise. 

Throughout the evaluation 
process, it is assumed that all ad- 
ministrators will be fair in their 
evaluations, and even the evaluation 
instructions put out on the Merit 
and Promotion Plan instructs them 
to be fair. To be effective it 
(evaluation) must be entered into 
with honesty and the highest caliber 
of profesionalism. Predjudice, petty 
malacie, and personal dislikes have 
no place in the procedure, and it will 
not be tolerated." 

This is good. We should also be 
able to assume that each ad- 
ministrator who evaluates a faculty 
member will evaluate fairly and not 
give 1 out high rating for the sake of 
wanting to be friendly. Right? I 
mean thats why they're in the ad- 
ministration. No biases whatsoever. 

.Well, here comes the crux of the 
matter. The evaluators are also 
informed on the instruction sheet 
that the number 4 category, should 
be limited to a maximum of 5-10 
percent of your faculty unless you 
and your dean agree that there are 
some unusual circumstances in your 
department. ..categories 4 and 3 
should be limited to a combined 
maximum of 25 percent of your 

Now let me ask you, how can you 
have an honest, unbiased 
evaluation when only a certain 
percentage of people can earn top 
ratings. If there are 10 people in one 
department, then according to the 
instructions, only one person can 
really get a 4, and possibly two more 
cafi make 3's. The rest of the faculty 
in] that department have to be 
satisfied with 2's, 1 's or O's. 

According to Dr. Bienvenu, the 
evaluation system has been used 
before, with only a minimum 
amount of complaints. But even Dr. 
Bienvenu says that the evaluation 
system is not a good one. I don't 
like the system, but people 
requested it. A number of people 
want it," said Bienvenu. Dr. 
Bienvenu wouldn't say who wanted 
it, but according to one department 
head, the people who make 3's and 
4's want it, because they do very 
good work and still only get the 
same recognition that 2's, l's and 
O's get. 

This makes sense, only if it was 
for an open evaluation system. 
Excellent faculty should be 
recognized. But when you put a 
quota on the top spots, then there is 
a good possibility that a lot of good 
faculty members who deserve 
recognition will not get it. In fact, it 
would probably do a lot to lower 
faculty morale when a category 4 
instructor is only given a 3 or 2 
because the 4 category quota has 
already been filled. Of course, if the 
faculty member believes that he got 
a bum deal, he can make an ob- 
jection. Good luck, the instructions 
readily inform the complaining 
faculty member that the President's 
decisions will be reached on a 
cooperative basis with several 
administrative officers (department 
heads, deans, the Vice President of 
Academic Affairs, and the Merit 
and Promotions Advisory Council). 
The final decisions will be a con- 
sensus of these officers and, 

Well, if this can happen to the 
faculty, then what about the 
students. We have often heard 
rumors that an instructor cannot 
fail everybody in his class, not even 
if every student in that class deserves 
it. We've also heard the rumors 
that instructors are told that there 
can only be so many A's, so many 
B's and so on. If this is true, then 
there could be quite a few A 
students walking around with B or 
C transcripts. 

Any kind of evaluation or grading 
system that has a quota in it is 
unfair. It can rapidly lead to 
favoritism. Those who do a good 
job and are liked by those who do 
the evaluating get the good scores, 
while those who do an equally good 
job, but are not liked as well, get a 
lesser score. The evaluator can then 
ease his conscience by telling the 
unfortunate person that the quota 
just wouldn't let him give him the 
score that he really deserves. 

Any type of evaluation system 
that mentions a quota, should be 
done away with at NSU, whether it 
be for students, faculty or ad- 
ministration. The Sauce can only 
hope that students are not graded by 
quotas, and that the administration 
can find a truly honest way to 
evaluate the faculty next year. At 
least let the evaluation be free and 
allow every faculty member stand 
on his or her own true merits. 

I guess it's a sign of age when you 
can watch history repeating itself. 
The day after the announcement of 
the new draft registration those 
haunted and bloodshot eyes of 
youth returned to NSU. Welcomce 
back fun and olive drab games. 

Take it from someone w ho knows 
what it's like to sweat out a math 
final not because of what Mom and 
Dad will say but what Uncle Sam 
will do about it. Nine times out of 
ten it was a nice letter asking you to 
report to your draft board for a 
"review" of your current status. 

Soon after that you are being 
measured for green underwear and 
told to grab your ankles. Ah! What 
exciting times! 

Now it is your turn to stand up 
for your country. However if you're 
not thrilled by the prospects of a life 
in the military there are two 
alternatives: 1. Buy your bus ticket 
to Ottawa before the rush or 2. Do 
something about it. I could 
recommend a combination of the 
two but, for reasons unknown, the 
latter is still be best method. I'm 
sure some of vour friends or even 

relatives have a few black armbands 
left over from the Moratorium days, 
so drag then out and use senators. 
You'll be amazed at the response. 
Most of them didn't even know you 
were alive. 

And when your standing in that 
line down at the post office to fill 
out "The Form" look at all the 
male faces and get used to it, 
because when push comes to shove 
that's all you'll see for a long time. 
And where will the ladies be? Back 
home, where else? Maybe a voted 
for the E.R.A. better her than me." 

Social consciousness comes hard to 

This next year is going to be very 
interesting to me. Are we going to 
gear up a full draft? Will people 
once again take to the streets in 
protest? Will we able to tell which 
way the wind blows without the 
weathermen? Who knows! I cer- 
tainly don't. But 1 urge you to use 
your right to vote to let your 
Feelings be known now and not 
after you've received your 
"greetings from the President." 

Doug Ireland's Notebook 

Odds and Ends, Bits and Pieces 

A few random thoughts about 
this and that and anything else that 
comes along on a rainy Friday... 

...Looks as though there might be 
as many as 20,000 visitors on 
campus this weekend (June 28-29) 

(continued from page 1) 

for the long awaited Natchitoches 
Folk Festival to be held in Prather 
Coliseum. And while everyone else 
will have to pay to get in NSU 
students will get in with their ID 
cards, thanks to the Student Union 
Governing Board. 

Bored? You shouldn't. . . 

few 'bad' course over with, and not 
have to worry about additional 
classes also, as it would be in the fall 
or spring semesters. But do not fear, 
the people taking these double 
courses are easily recognizable-they 
are the ones wolking around with a 
dazed look in their eyes, constantly 
mumbling formulas and equations, 
even while drinking and eating. 

Another thing that occupies much 
of the spare time of many people is 
work. Almost everyone would love 
to have a summer job to earn extra 
cash, and some people are lucky 
enough to find employment, even in 
these hard times. There are on- 
campuc jobs, campus related jobs 
(such as the rec-complex), stores 
and businesses, and, of course, the 
good old liquor stores, which seem 
to always do good business. 
Volunteer, civic type activities are 
always going on, and always in need 
of active, interested participants. 

All of the above things are well 
and good, you may say, but what 
about the students who do not have 
unusual classes, and those who do 
not work? And what is there to do 
at night, especially during the week? 
Soon that question may apply to the 
week-ends also, for it is a sad but 
true fact that many NSU students 
pack up and leave on week-ends. 
And the situation is getting in- 
creasingly worse. 

Well, stop fussing and fuming. 
There are plenty of things to do- 
especially when a little creative 
effort is put forth. 

The rec complex is a favorite 
place for many students, where 
friends, sun, and water combine to 
make an unbeatable combination. 
Remember, it was paid for through 
student fees, so why not put it to 
use? If you are lucky enough to have 
a boat, or almost as good, a friend 
with a boat, split the cost of fuel and 
go sking or riding on the river or 
lake. The water is not your scene, 
you say? There is a fantastic tennis 
complex on campus, and the city 
courts are not far away. Both have 
lights for night play. The intramural 
building is open, and Ginger Parrish 
and her hard-working staff have 
been busy fixing up a schedule of 
fun-filled intramural events which 
will begin soon. 

There are also such activities 
as bowling and roller skating, which 
can also be done at night. 

The SUGB still has every 
Thursday and Friday night, and the 
three shown so far this summer have 
been very good. It is free, too, 
which is very nice. Also, things such 
as the Folk Festival which will be 
held this week-end are a good way 
to have fun, and pick up knowledge 
about the area culture. Then there is 
that good old friend-a party. They 
do not take much, just a few people 
ready to have a good time. 

So, go alone, with an old friend,

something! Sitting around and

anywhere. Remember, life is only 
what you make it if. If you want 
something good, an effort has to be

The SUGB crew forked out $600 
to the festival sponsors to allow any 
card-carrying NSUers "free" 
admittance. This, in addition to 
$800 from the NSU Artist Series 
fund which will help foot the en- 
tertainment bill for the festival, 
more or less (mostly more) means 
you've already paid for your fun. 

And fun it should be, no matter 
who you are and what you like, 
because as one newspaper headline 
said last week, "It's all there in 
Natchitoches." Ethnic foods, 
traditional music, arts and crafts 
exhibits, people... it should be a 
super way to spend a weekend. 

But I reckon (how's that for a 
folksy word?) the most important 
aspect of the Folk Festival was 
expressed best by ragtime pianist 
George Ellis. 

"I really think the Natchitoches 
Folk Festival will be one of the 
finest things to happen in this 
state," he said. "This Festival is 
important to our kids because they 
really have no sense of their 

"When we lose our heritage, 
we've had it. And right now, we're 
on our way to losing it." 

The Natchitoches Folk Festival 
might change that... 

...The Old Line Avenue School 
Battle is apparently over. Now that 
Northwestern has decided to let the 
old building remain standing and 
change the location of the new 
nursing complex so it will face 
another street, you would think the 
preservationists in Shreveport 
would be happy-but they-re not. 

They wanted NSU to utilize the 
old schoolhouse in the plans for the 
new complex, but the university 
refused. The fear is that the 
structure will continue to deteriorate 
and soon there will be no choice but 
to demolish it. 

Oddly enough, the preservationist 
have dragged their feet when it 
comes to trying to obtain any state 
or federal funds to repair the 
building. They are like many people 
on welfare-they want something, 
but only as long as someone else 
does the work. 

It would be foolish for NSU to 
spend money trying to renovate the 
building if, as administrator say, it 
does not meet the needs of the 
nursing program. It would also be 
foolish for Shreveporters,-who have 
put up so much of a fuss trying to 
save the Old Line Avenue school, -to 
allow it to rot away now.

Get rich quick schemes? 
Just don 't count on them 

You're sitting at home or up in 
your dorm room bored out of your 
skull. Natchitoches gets like that in 
the summer and to make matters 
worse, you don't have a penny to 
your name, which means you 
probably don't have any cigarettes, 
can't buy soda, and you can't even 
play Asteroids in the game room. 

Rough times, right? But you 
realize that you've got to do 
something. Sell coke bottles? No, 
you did that last week. Sell your 
book? Naw, who, would ever want 
to buy a book entitled, "Leprosey; 
A Hope for Mankind." Sell your 
body? No such luck. 

Since there is nothing to do while 
you're in this ultra-bored state, you 
lay back, pick up an old edition of 
The Rolling Funk magazine and 
begin to browse. Suddenly your eyes 
catch on this little, tiny ad- 
vertisement at the bottom of the 
page, and you realize that all your 
mometary problems are over. There 
it is, the opening line: "Here's your 
chance to earn extra money by 
working at home." What more 
could a poor, down and out student 
ask for. Well, probably a lot more. 

According to the Louisiana 
Office of Consumer Protection 
(OCP), that line can mean all sorts 
of problems to the people that reply 
to that ad. During inflation, ads 
which begin like that seem to 
multiply and many people in- 

nocently fall prey to unscupulous 
promoters who mislead them into 
believing they can make lots of 
money by working at home. 
Remember, there is no such thing as 
a free lunch, and as far as the OCP 
knows, nobody has yet perfected a 
legal way to make a pile of money 
without doing work. (I know, I've 
been trying for years.) 

Most of these earn-at-home 
schemes are aimed at attracting the ■ 
elderly, the handicapped, persons 
on fixed incomes, and just people 
who are trying to pay bills. That 
includes many students. The come- 
on creates the false expectation of 
high earning and good employment- 
two things which really appeals to 
students who can't afford a pack of 

How can you tell whether a work- 
at-home opportunity is legitimate or 
not? The OCP suggests that you ask 
the following questions to test 
whether the offer is a rip off: Does it 
fail to offer you regular salaried 
employment? Does it promise you 
huge profits and big part-time 
earnings? Does it use personal 
testimonials, but neglect to name 
the persons so you can check with 
them? Does it require you toad- 
vance money for instructions or 
merchandise before telling you how 
the plan operates? Doe is assure you 
guaranteed markets and a big 
demand for your handiwork? Does 
it tell you no experience is 

necessary? Is the address yes to any 
of these questions, then you had 
better look for another way to earn 

The OCP advises people to be 
cautious about paying in advance to 
find out about a work-at-home 
plan. In many instances, the ad- 
vertiser will simply send you in- 
formation telling you how to set up 
your own business or conduct your 
own work-at-home scheme. One 
operator's response to people who 
sent money for information on his 
"get rich quick" ad was a note 
which read: "You too can earn 
money at home. Get a P.O. box like 
I did, Sucker." 

The OCP says think twice before 
investing in a scheme which involves 
making handicrafts at home which 
you will have to sell to earn a profit, 
or which the company tells you they 
will sell for you. Very often, there 
reject it because it does not "meet 
their standards." 

According to the OCP, legitimate 
work-at-home plans do exist. Ask 
the company to send you a list of 
names of persons in your area who 
have participated in the plan you are 
considering. Contact these people 
and inquire about their experience. 
If you receive a good recom- 
mendation, the plan may also be the 
right one for you.

Robin Rose and Cindy Totten perform in

One-act plays to start offseason 

The Rec Complex - 

Enchanting paradise casts its spell 

By Kathy Jones 
Sauce Reporter 

Relaxing at a fabulous recreation 
center amid the grandest 
surroundings? Wonderful! The 
Rec Complex is so much more than 
you bargained for. It's a con- 
tinuous delight. And, that's what 
summer fun is all about. 

The $1.2 million complex is an 
unusually solid marriage between 
research and development. NSU 
representatives consolidated ideas 
and worked on details for five years, 
till completion, with the SUGB's 
Research and Development 
Committee. The result of all that 
planning, says Complex Manager 
Bill Hochstetler, is a rich and 
wondrous reality. 

The Rec Complex is dazzling, so 
diverse and so different from 
anything you may have experienced 
that it takes time to see and absorb. 
Within the complex lies "a little 
piece of paradise." You'll find 
deluxe accommodations and full 

Everywhere you look there's 
activity. One can swim and dive, 
play tennis (and golf pending 
completion of the 9-hole golf 
course), or enjoy the paradisiacal 
surroundings favored by sun- 

To get in on the fun, you won't 
need any special training, skills, or 
expertise. The up-to-date facilities 
»re open to the university and 
student chartered organizations and 
the general public. 

The prime activity, swimming is 
absolutely painless. According to 
Hochstetler, "swimming is 98% 
Prevention and 2<Vdiscipline." Nine 
Wsi qualified and physically 
conditioned lifeguards are making 
the most obvious moves for you to 
enjoy your splash. If you're at- 
tracted by the intense brilliant blue 
°f its water, then "experience the 50 
tieter swimming pool that ex- 
perience created." 

Nature provides a spectacular 
backdrop for the tennis area. It is 
toothed by the tranquility of the 
countryside. At $2.00 per hour, 
*hat a setting to play. 

The entire complex is so adap- 
•able, in fact that the clubhouse, 
Complete with snack bar can be 
disco-fevered for lively nightlife. 

The Rec Complex is a place where 
''me seems to have stood still. 
Iteration hours are scheduled for 
Uiesday through Sunday, 1:00-7:00 
P.m. and Saturday, 12:00-7:00 p.m. 
[f you have no choice, any time is 
°etter than never. 
These are merely the highlights. 

The rest-and there is more-will 
reveal itself. Regarding the NSU 
Rec Complex, one should "desire to 
embrace it, to possess it. And, 

finally, a soft sense of possession 
grows up and your visit becomes a 
perpetual love affair." 


When temperatures reached the high-90's recently, the water 
hole at NSU's Rec Complex has become a gathering place for 
many students. Here, one of NSU's coeds shows the photogra- 
pher her graceful dive into the water. 

NSU's drama department's 
summer season kicked off last night 
with the opening of two one-act 
plays in the Little Theater. "The 
Conquest of Everst" and "Im- 
promtu" will play tonight and 
tomorrow, beginning at 7:30 p.m. 

"The Conquest of Everest", 
written by Arthur Kopit, is being 
directed by Cindy Totten, a 
graduate student in speech. Cast in 
the play is Cindy Totten as 
Almenside, Grayson Harper as 
Almanstar, and Rabbi Williams as a 
Chinese soldier. According to Miss 
Totten, "The Conquest of Everest" 
is a whimisical comment love that 
takes place on the peak of Mt. 
Everest. Almenside and Almanstar 
are two tourist who fall in love on 
the peak of the mountain and are 
found by a Chinese soldier who has 
come to conquer the mountain. 

The next play, "Impromptu", 
was written by Tad Mosel, and is 
directed by Sandra Helton, a 
veteran NSU actor who is probably 
best remembered for her per- 
formance last semester in "Colored 
Girls Who Have Considered Suicide 
When the Rainbow is Enough." 
Cast in "Impromtu" is Cindy 
Totten as Winifred, Grayson 
Harper as Ernest, Robin Rose as 
Lora, and Rick Mason as Tony. 
According to Miss Helton, "Im- 
promptu" deals with an im- 
provisation of life. Miss Helton was 
hesitant to tell much about the play 
since she plans it to be a suprise to 
the audience. 

Providing the technical part of 
two plays will be Rick Mason who is 
the technical director, while Sandra 
Helton and James Byrd will work in 

On the 21, 22, and 23 of July, the 
drama department will present Neil 
Simons awarding-winning play, 
"The Odd Couple." Simon won the 
1965 Tony Award for his play about 
two completely television series, 
starring Tony Randall and Jack 
Klugman. Ray Schexnider will be 
directing the NSU production. 

Cast in the play are Richard Rudd 
as Speed, Bob McGraw as Murray, 

James Byrd as Roy, Rabbi Williams 
as Oscar, Ken Woodard as Felix, 
Cindy Totten as Cicily and the part 
of Gwendolyn will be played 
by Leah McGee 

The plays, "The Conquest of 
Everst" and "Impromtu" begin at 
7:30 p.m., students are admitted 
free with a current I.D. 

Summer session plays 
get favorable reaction 

By Stephen Howard 
Sauce Reporter 

The NSU Summer Repertory 
Company is presenting a pair of one 
act plays Monday, Tuesday, and 
Wednesday at 7:30. 

The first, Ted Mosel's Im- 
promptu sets four actors on a stage 
to present an unrehearsed, scriptless 
play. The unseen stage manager 
will allow them to leave only when 
they have given a satisfactory 
performance. (An awesome 
thought, but fortunately, with this 
cast, there is no need for ap- 
prehension.) After a few moments 
of indecision, the four begin to 
improvise a conventional romantic 
plot. They procede, bickering 
among themselves about the 
direction their play should take. 
Suddenly, one of the characters 
experiences a moment of insight, 
rejects the hypocrisy of the situation 
(and also the hypocrisy inherent in 
an actor's performing a role), and 
leaves the scene. The others, unable 
to do the same, must continue their 
inane play. 

The other play, The Conquest of 
Everest by Arthur Kopit, is a light- 
hearted fable about a school teacher 

and a coach who stroll barefoot up 
Mt. Everest one afternoon, share a 
sandwich, fall in love, and return 
down the mountain. The Chinese 
soldier, who makes the climb the 
"right" way pronounces the moral 
(in heroic couplets!): that anything 
is possible when you don't know 
that it's impossible. 

The dress rehearsal I saw on 
Sunday, in spite of some technical 
problems, ran pretty smoothly. The 
two casts-Rick Mason, Cindy 
Totten, Grayson Harper, and Rabbi 
Williams in the Conquest of 
Everest-are good, especially Rabbi 
Williams as the Chinese soldier. 

Both plays are efficiently 
directed, the first by Sandra Helton, 
the second by Cindy Totten. Rick 
Masow's sets and technical effects 
look good-Mt. Everest alone is 
worth going to see. 

My single major criticism with 
both pieces is that the pacing was 
too slow, but both the directors and 
the cast members that I talked to 
seemed aware of this and it will . 
probably be cleaned up by the time 
you go to see it.

Mark Duper 

Junior sprinter Mark Duper anchored the Demons winning 
400-meter relay team in a meet held at the NSU Track Com- 
plex. Duper is presently competing in the 100 and 200-meter 
dashes at the Olympic Trials in Eugene. Ore. He finished 
fourth in his qualifying heat on Saturday with a 10.37 clocking. 

Bell returns to AIA, 
decides against coaching 


Former Northwestern basketball 
star Dan Bell will once again be 
displaying his talents as a member 
of the touring Athletes in Action 
basketball team during the 1980-81 

Bell, a 6-foot-3 guard who was a 
two-year starter for NSU after 
transferring from Walker Junior 
College in Alabama, played for one 
year on the internationally-famous 
squad after completing his Nor- 
thwestern career and then came 
back to NSU, where he has served as 
a graduate assistant coach for the 
past two seasons. 

"It's too good an offer to turn 
down," said Bell, who had already 
been offered a job at Rapides High 
School in Lecompte for the up- 
coming season. "Athletes in Action 
will be traveling around the world 
this year and playing against every 
one of the world's top ten amateur 
teams during the season." 

Bell also said that AIA, an af- 
filiate of the Campus Crusade for 
Christ, will be paying him a salary 
plus living expenses for he and his 
wife in Vancouver, British 
Columb ia, headquarter s for the 
team during the season. 11 

The Athletes in Action club, 
which plays many of the nation 
top university teams in addition to 
amateur and Olympic teams from 
other countries, compiled a 49-8 
record last year. The team put 
together a 32-3 record and beat the 

Russian National Team in 1978 
when Bell was a member of the 

Bell, who was one of the top 
scorers on the squad during his 
earlier one-year stint, averaged 15.6 
points per game his senior season 
for the Demons in 1976-77 after 
sporting a 12.7 average during his 
junior year. He also averaged over 
seven assists per game during his 
career and was heralded as one of 
the best long-range shooting guards 
in NSU history. 

Athletes in Action begins play in 
November and will be touring South 
America and Europe during the 
season while playing such in- 
ternational teams as the Soviet 
Union and Yugoslavia during the 

1 20 youngsters to 
attend NSU Camp 

Approximately 120 junior and 
senior high basketball players will 
be taking part in the first session of 
NSU's annual basketball camp 
which began on Sunday, June 22. 

Tynes Hildebrand, retired head 
basketball coach at NSU who is 
directing the camp for the 15th 
consecutive season, said that late 
registrants are being accepted. 

The second session of the camp is 
scheduled for July 6-11 and ap- 
proximately 120 youths are already 
signed up for that session. 

Handy, Duper in Olympic Trials 

By Don Hudson 
Sports Editor 

NSU's first-ever Division I indoor 
and outdoor track All-American 
and top sprinter are presently 
competing in the Olympic Trials 
held in Eugene, Ore., scheduled 
from June 21-29. 

Jarrot Handy, a senior from 
Baton Rouge, has to be considered 
one of the favorites in the long jump 
after he leaped 26-feet, 4 1/2 inches 
to finish third in the NCAA Out- 
door Track and Field Cham- 
pionships held in Austin, Tex. two 
weeks ago while junior sprinter 
Mark Duper certainly has to be one 
of the darkhorse favorites in the 100 
and 200-meter dashes. 

"The trials are going to be a good 
experience for me but it doesn't 
mean as much because we're not 
going to Moscow for the Olym- 
pics," said Handy. "The com- 
petition is still going to be tough but 
the thought of no Olympic medals 
for this country is going to take a lot 
away from the athletes." 

"Larry My ricks is considered the 
leading long jumper in the world 
and I can imagine how he feels 
about not showing his talent against 
the best in the world." Myricks, a 
Mississippi College graduate who 
has leaped 27-11 for the second 
longest jump in history, was a 
member of the U. S. 1976 Olympic 
team which competed in Montreal.

Duper ran the anchor leg on the 
Demons record shattering 400-meter 
relay team in addition to qualifying 
for the 100-meter dash in the NCAA 
Outdoor meet. "The outdoor meet 
was a big disappointment for me 
and the team and I'm still hurt 
mentally from that," said Duper.

Javelin ace Stockton 
avenges earlier loss 

The second time around can 
sometimes be the best time around 
and that was the case for NSU's 
track and field signee Steve 

Stockton, the AAA state javelin 
champion from Tioga High School 
who was the Demons' first signee of 
the season, suffered his first loss in 
two years in his specialty at the 
Track and Field Associaiton/USA 
meet in Wichita, Kansas two weeks 
ago. But Stockton avenged that loss 
Saturday, June 9 when he uncorked 
a 234- feet, 3-inch toss to win the 
high school division at the Golden 
West Invitational in Sacremento, 

Jim Russell of Shawnee St. 
Joseph, Kan., who defeated 
Stockton in the Kansas meet with 
the second longest throw in prep 
history (254-9), finished second with 
a toss of 233-10. 

Stockton's second place toss of 
254-0 in Kan. was a Lousiana state 

record as well as being the third 
best throw in prep history. The 
previous state's best throw was a 
244-11 effort, set by Terry Brad- 
shaw who is now the starting 
quarterback for the Pittsburgh 
Steelers. The effort by Stockton was 
19 1/2 feet better than his previous 
best throw. 

The national high school record is 
254-11 set in 1971 by Russ Francis, 
also now a professional football 
player with the New England 

Stockton compiled perhaps the 
most outstanding series of throws 
ever by a prep javelin thrower in 
Kan. His series included throws of 
241-0, 252-10,254-0, 241-6, and 251- 

Saturday's outing was the last 
meet of the summer for Stockton 
and his last competition as a prep

The Demons were forced to 
withdraw from competition 
because David Fuller suffered a 
pulled hamstring and Duper pulled 
a back muscle. "It's a big disap- 
pointment for all of us," said NSU 
track and field coach Jerry Dyes, 
because judging by the times in the 
finals we could easily have finished 
second and we would have finished 
no worse than fourth even if we 
had run a bad race." 

Duper's injury caused him to 
scratch in the 100-meter semifinals 
after he posted a season best of 
10.31 in the qualifying round ahead 
of such noted sprinters Curtis 
Dickey of Texas A&m and Jerome 
Deal of Ut El Paso. 

"I'm looking forward to the trials 
and whether my back is hurting or 
not, I'm running," said Duper. 
"Competition is competition 
wherever you go and everybody has 
an equal chance." Texas meet, 
breaking the old mark of 26-3 set by 
Mike Brown in 1976 at the 
Southwestern Relays. Houston 
freshman sensation Carl Lewis won 
the event with a 27-4 3/4 effort, 
while Larry Doubley of USC was 
second at 26-8. 

"Lewis has a lot of natural talent 
and speed," said Handy. He could 
compete as a sprinter and still make 
it to the trials." 

Handy set an unofficial state 
record in the event, a mark set in 

1974 by Wesley Smith of La. Tech 
while also establishing a personal 

"I qualified every year for the 
NCAA Championships but each 
year I was deprived of competing 
because of injuries," said Handy. 
But not this year. Just the com- 
petition and being there was like a 
dream come true." 

"Since I was a freshman at NSU 
my main goal was to qualify for 
national and international com- 
petition and now I've finally 
reached that goal." 

A 51-3/4 effort in the triple jump 
last March in Detroit and a fifth 
place finish enabled Handy to claim 
an All-American honor at the 
NCAA Indoor Championships. He 
has also had a personal best of 52- 
01/2 in the event to rank second on 
NSU's all-time triple jump list. 

Duper posted a 20.96 time in the 
200 earlier in the season to qualify 
for the trials. I feel that my 
strongest race will come in the 200," 
said Duper. 

The first and second rounds of 
the 100 meter dash will be ran on 
Sat. June 21 with the final round 
held on Sun. June 22. Handy will 
compete in the qualifying round of 
the long jump on Tues. June 24 
while Duper will run in the 200- 
meter dash first and second rounds. 
The long jump and 200 finals will 
end on Wed. June 25. 



Demons ink star shortstop 

NSU has signed its fifth high 
school baseball standout by inking 
shortstop Max Lewis of Bellaire 
High School's state AAAA 
quarterfinalist team. 

The announcement of the signing 
of the 6-foot-l, 160 pounder was 
made last week by NSU head 
baseball coach Herbie Smith. Lewis

Bayou Folk Museum 
Suffering Severe Neglect 

By Susan Higgs Monday 
Sauce Reporter 

It is not unusual for former 
graduates of universities to give 
their alma maters gifts in later years 
and so Mildred McCoy, a graduate 
of the Normal School, gave to NSU 
such a gift in November of 1978. 
Her gift was the beautiful and 
priceless Bayou Folk Museum in 
Cloutierville, the one-time home of 
authoress Kate Chopin. 

For many years, Mrs. McCoy had 
lovingly built up a collection of 
antiquities which created at Bayou 
Folk not one museum, but six or 
seven. The museum is full to 
bursting with antique furniture, 
lines, clothing, documents, and 
farm implements which would be 
impressive in larger and more 
famous collections. 

Almost two years later, Mrs. 
McCoy says that she regrets having 
made this valuable donation to the 
school. .I'm dissapointed and my 
feelings are hurt. I feel as if I've died 
and I don't know where I've gone. 
They told me that they would paint 
and repair and they haven't done a 
thing. I'm sorry I ever gave it to 
them," said Mrs. McCoy. 

Over the past year and a half that 
the university has been in charge of 
the facility, the paint has begun to 
flake from the walls; the porch 
swings were taken down when lack 
of repair made them dangerous; 
and weeds have grown up in the ivy 
beds in the yard. 

According to Margie LaCour, 
museum curator, and Emma 
Mason, long-time volunteer worker 
at the facility, a man from the 
university came about six weeks ago 
md made a list of things to be done 
md hasn't been heard from since. 

John Price, assigned the difficult 
position of director for the museum, 
explains the university' s lack of 
action in several ways. The usual 
amount of bureaucratic red-tape 
has slowed h'j abilities to act but he 
reports, repairs and paintings will 
begin in the fall. Probably the 
biggest problem tha that we have 
d is simply to learn the com- 
plicated business of museum 
management — what needs to be 

done, how to do it, and when it well 
need to be done." 

Price feels that the orientation 
phase is over and the museum will 
begin to be an ever more important 
component of NSU facilities. 

Being on the national register of 
historic building, it is tailor-made 
for a grant." 

Lucille Carnahan, a member of 
the Bayou Folk executive board, is 
looking toward the future also. She 
believes that Bayou Folk will 
become a recruiting aid and a 
national distinction for NSU. We 
need to concentrate on letting 
people know that Natchitoches is a 
cultural center. When visitors from 
from other cities see the museum 
and learn that it belongs to Nor- 
thwestern, they are impressed and 
hopefully will encourage their 
friends and children to come here." 

Already the facility is used for 
enrichment classes, Inside View 
tours, and the gifted and talented 
programs. It would seem that 
everything that can be done is being 

done. Pete Gregory, NSU professor 
of anthropology, sees student in- 
volvement as the crux of the 
problem. John Price can't do 
everything that needs to be done 
down there. I know that he would 
be glad for interested students to do 
cataloging or research." Dr. 
Gregory will be offering the social 
sciences departments museum 
practicum course this fall for a 
limited number of students and, for 
the first time, students will be 
allowed an option to do their work 
at Bayou Folk. 

Mrs. McCoy is hopeful that the 
future for her museum will be 
brighter than its immediate past. It 
would seem that the responsibility 
for the future of the facility rests 
squarely on the shoulders of 
Northwestern's students. Mrs. 
McCoy has given NSU students the 
opportunity to do the kind of 
research and write the kind of theses 
on which reputations are built. It is 
now up to the students to use or 
misuse this priceless gift. 

Old Line Ave. School 
Still Plagues NSU 

Well, just when everybody 
thought that the controversy 
surrounding the Old Line Avenue 
school in Shreveport was over, 
something else comes along and stirs 
it all up again. This time is was State 
Commissioner of Administration E. 
L. "Bubba" Henry who did the 
stirring. Henry has countered an 
order by NSU officials to revise 
construction plans for the Line 
Avenue School. 

Henry wants a study done to see if 
the old school can be used in NSU's 
new nursing school. Last month, 
Dr. Bienvenu directed architects to 
revise plans to build the school on 
the site, His instructions called for 
retention of the Line Avenue School 
but did not include plans to use the 
old building. 

Bienvenu said he opposed using 
the building as part of the $6.5 
million classroom and ad- 

Zina Is First Runner-up 
In Miss La. Pageant 

Northwestern State University 
student Zina Curlee of Alexandria, 
first runner-up this summer in the 
Miss Louisiana contest, says she will 
continue her efforts to compete in 
the Miss America pageant in 
Atlantic City, N.J. 

"Miss Louisiana judges told me 
after the pageant that the tallies 
Were very close and that the panel of 
judges considered me a 'total 
Package' in pageant competition, 
to 1 will keep trying to make it to 
pliss America," Miss Curlee said. 

Back on the Northwestern 
campus to continue her summer 
semester studies, Miss Curlee said 
judges indicated that she had rated 
Well in every segment of Miss 
Louisiana competition. "They just 
Want me to continue to 'bone up' on 
everything," she said. 

The junior public relations major, 
*ho has competed in beautv 


pageants since she eight-years-old 
and is listed in "Who's Who in 
Pageants," stated that she will 
attempt to enter other Miss America 
preliminaries in the future. 

A singer who has toured 
throughout the state with NSU 
Entertainers, Miss Curlee received 
strong support from the Miss 
Louisiana audience when she sang a 
special arrangement of More" 
that moved into a jazz beat. 

"When they announced the top 
10, I knew that everything had come 
together," she said. After the 
talent competition during the finals, 
it all got easier because I got good 
response from the audience every 
time I walked on stage." 

Competing in the pageant as 
Northwestern's Lady of the 
Bracelet, Miss Curlee will succeed 
Martha Crews of Baton Rouge as 
Miss Louisiana if Miss Crews has 
to give up the crown at any time 
during her reign. 

The daughter of Frankie and 
Bobby Curlee of Alexandria, Miss 
Curlee placed the highest in the state 
pageant of any NSU Lady of the 
Bracelet who has ever competed for 
the state's top beauty honor. 

"Preparation and hard work paid 
off for me," said the first black 
contestant in the Miss Louisiana 
pageant. I went there to have a 
good time and do my best, and 1 
think 1 a-complished both of those 

She added, For some reason, I 
never doubted that I would make it 
to the finals. I guess I was so 
confident because 1 was sure that all 
of the hard work that I had put in 
would pay off." 

As Miss Louisiana first runner- 
up, Miss Curlee received an SI, 100 
scholarship and several valuable

ministration complex, but hoped 
future use would be feasible. The 
NSU president said he concurred 
with the project architects' advice 
that it was undesirable to include the 
school as part of the nursing 

Original plans called for the Old 
Line Avenue, which had been 
unused for years, to be torn down to 
make way for the nursing complex. 
But preservationists headed by 
Shreveport architect Bill Wiener, Jr, 
opposed the tearing down of the 
building and took the fight for the 
building to the courts. The courts 
awarded the title to the school to 
Northwestern and in a friendly 
gesture toward the preservationist, 
Bienvenu revised the plans for the 
nursing facility, allowing the old 
building to remain standing and 
moving the nursing facility across 
the lot. Bienvenu had no intentions 
of using the building as part of the 
new facility. 

In a June 30 letter to Wiener, 
Henry said he had "directed the 
architect on the project not to 
proceed with plans on the nursing 
school as proposed by Dr. Bien- 

The commissioner also said he 
asked the state's Facility Planning 
and Control Office to determine the 
cost of having an independent 
architect study the feasibility of 
using the Line Avenue structure as 
part of the nursing school. 

Henry stated that he wants a third 
party to survey the situation and 
find out the practicality of restoring 
the old school. 

"It's the least we can do, from a 
public and taxpayers' standpoint, to 
investigate the financial possibility" 
of renovating the school, he said. 

Henry said he does not know when 
the study will be completed, but he 
will wait until information is 
received from the Facility Planning 
and Control. 

The architect for the project, 
John A. Walker of Walker and 
Walker Architects-Engineers, said 
he has not heard anything directly 
or indirectly from Henry. 

Wiener, member of Historic 
Preservation of Shreveport, which is 
seeking preservation of the building, 
said the "logical manner is to get 
outside expert opinion because we 
are very comfortable with his 
(Henry's) approach." 

Any expert, Wiener said, will 
conclude that recycling the building 
will save money. Saving the school 
will be an asset to the city and the 
university, he said.

Inside View, the summer 
orientations program for incoming 
freshman, completed its first session 
June 25-27. The proram gives new 
students a chance to pre-register for 
^ all classes, and become acquainted 
with the NSU community. 

Each session is conducted by ten 
student counselors, called Insiders. 
Every Insider is responsible for a 
group of students, making up a 
"family". This system allows 
students to make new friends and 
possibly find a roommate for the

A separate program is set up for

able to familarize themselves with

Dan Seymour, director of High 
School Relations and Inside View 

co-sponsor, felt the "altitude of 
those participating was over- 
whelming. The students were very 
enthusiastic and felt more a part of 
NSU. The farewell assembly was 
very emotional for them." 

Seymour was especially pleased 
with the interest shown by regular 
students. "We've had full-time 
students attending some of the 
activities, and really enjoyed them," 
he said. 

Student counselors for this year's 
program are Marius MacFarland, 
Ginger Gates, Kristy Towry , Diane 
Adams, Jim McKellar, Anna 
Cloutier, Norma Carrillo, Tony 
Hernandez, and Cheryl Corkran. 

Two other session of Inside View

Registration for the Selective 
Service draft has now become a 
reality for approximately 4 million 
19 and 20-year-olds, since President 
Carter signed legislation June 28, 
which will allow the Selective 
Service System to begin registering 
young men for the draft. 

The House of Representative 
passed the draft legislation bill to 
the President June 26 by a vote of 
234-168, despite predictions from 
critics that registration would divide 
the country. Carter signed the bill at 
Camp David, Md., where he was 
resting following his European trip. 
Carter had been pushing for draft 
registration in order to shore up 
America's military might following 
the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. 

The American Civil Liberties 
Union (ACLU) is expected to 
challenge the registration order, and 
other anti-draft forces plan rallies 
and vigils at a number of the 
nation's post offices in late July as 
part of a national campaign to 
discredit the plan. 

Over SI 3 million has been 
authorized for the registration 
program. The registration plan 
allows youths to register by mailing 
the Selective Service a post card 
providing their name, age, address 
and a few other facts. 

NSU students between 19 and 20 
years old will be required to register. 
No word has been received on 
student deferrments. 

The Carter plan calls for a two 
week registration period in which 
males born in 1960 would register 
one week, probably the week 
beginning on July 21, and those 
born in 1961 would register the next, 
the week beginning July 28. 
Registration will be done at area 
post offices. 

Currently, post office officials are 
meeting in Baton Rouge to discuss 
their involvement in the registration 
and to work out more details. 

Teacher Exam Slated 
For July 19 at NSU 

The National Teacher 
Examinations, a battery of tests 
designed to measure knowledge 
gained from professional and 
general education and in 21 subject- 
matter fields, will be administered 
July 19 at Northwestern State 

Dr. Robert Lee, director of 
counseling and testing at NSU, said 
increased demand for testing has 
resulted in the addition of the July 
test date for Northwestern's testing 
schedule, which also includes ad- 
ministration of the NTE in 
November of 1980 and February of 

Prospective teachers who plan to 
take the NTE in July must register 
with the Educational Testing Service 
of Princeton, N.J., no later than 
June 25. Registration forms and 
instructions may be obtained from 
the Department of Counseling and 
Testing at NSU or by writing the 

National Teacher Examination, 
ETS, Box 911-R, Princeton, N.J. 

According to Lee, registrants for 
the NTE may take the Common 
Examinations, which include tests in 
professional and general education, 
and one of the 21 Area 
Examinations designed to evaluate 
knowledge of particular subjects 
and teaching methods. 

Individuals taking the Common 
Examinations will report at 8:30 
a.m. and complete the test by 12:30 
p.m. Area Examinations are 
scheduled from 1:30 p.m. to 4:15 

Lee said scores from the 
examinations are used by states for 
certification of teachers, by school 
districts for selection and iden- 
tification of leadership qualities 
and by colleges as part of their 
graduation requirements.

La Vere's Report 

In a recent address to "student 
leaders", President Bienvenu urged 
them to begin a strong recruiting 
campaign for the university. EThe 
name of the game is recruiting. The 
progress of the university depends 
on the student," said Bienvenu. 

According to Dr. Bienvenu, Coch 
Wayne Yates stated that "a winning 
athletic program will recruit 
students." Dr. Bienvenu disagreed. 
EI don't believe students will come 
here because we win. If we win, tten 
we have good spirit. When you 
carry that spirit back home, then 
that is what does it. It all comes 
back to the happy student." 

In a way, both men are right. A 
winning athletic program, if it 
creates spirit and that spirit brings 
in students, then I guess we can say 
that a winning athletic program id 
increase enrollment. 

But I also have to agree with Dr. 
Bienvenu, it does take more than 
just a winning athletic program to 
really increase enrollment. I can also 
agree with Dr. Bienvenu that 
student recruiting is mainly done by 
other students. But to do an ef- 
fective recruiting job, then the 
students must be happy and have 
something to brag about. 

NSU has a lot of features that 
would naturally attract students, 
but it seems that these are pushed by 
the wayside, and features that could 

be adopted that would attract 
students a re not accepted . 

The campus itself if a natural 
attraction. Small, extremely pretty, 
and plenty of fine old buildings. But 
the fine old buildings get torn down. 
Chaplains Lake, one of the nicest 
spots on the campus when I first 
came here, is being polluted daily 
and is also begining to stink like 
some downtown sewer. 

Dr. Bienvenu refuses to relax the 
alcohol restrictions on campus, 
because parents wouldn't like their 
children to come to a Epartying" 
campus. There doesn't seem to be 
any lack of students at LSU or USL, 
and they have lax alcohol restric- 

Basically what I am trying to say 
is that yes, students are good 
recruiters, but for us to recruit 
effectively, the college must provide 
us with something to lure the other 
in with. 

I can't think of anything that is 
more of a deterrent to recruiting 
than some student telling a potential 
student some of the facts about 

If the Administration would 
lighten up and relax, and possibly 
even tighten up the academic 
requirements, then NSU might see 
an enrollment increase. College is 
for big kids, and you have to treat 
them like big kids to keep them 
coming here. 

Doug Ireland's Notebook 

Thoughts while readying myself 
to go down to the neighborhood 
post office and register for the "just 
in case" draft... 

...The Old Line Avenue School is 
fast becoming NSU's own albatross. 
After months of court battles, NSU 
gained clear title to the building 
which stood on land targeted for the 
university's new $6.5 million 
nursing complex in Shreveport. 
Then in a surprise move, NSU 
president Dr. Rene Bienvenu 
directed architects to revise plans 
and the complex was moved across 
the lot. 

The Old Line Avenue School was 
saved. Everybody should be happy. 

But noooo! State Commissioner 
of Administration Bubba Henry has 
ordered a study by an independent 
architect to determine the feasibility 
of using the Line Avenue School as 
part of the nursing complex. Henry 
wants to see if recycling the building 
might save any money for the state. 

Why wasn't this done in the midst 
of all the court fights over 
ownership of the building? If the 
state is so concerned about saving 
money, why further delay the 
construction work on the complex? 
Every day that we wait to start work 
on the project construction and 
labor costs edge higher and higher. 

Why? All clues point to Bill 
Wiener Jr., a member of Historic 
Preservation of Shreveport. Wiener 
was the instigator of the legal battle 
over ownership, and Henry sent a 
letter to Wiener announcing the 
order to halt construction pending 
the results of the study. NSU's 
architects, Walker and Walker, say 
they have not yet heard from Henry. 

You would think Wiener and his 

group would be happy with the 
decision to save the Old Line 
Avenue School. After all, that was 
what they said they wanted-the old 
building to remain standing. 

But Wiener and his group have 
their cake and want to eat it too. 
Not only do they want the building 
to remain, they want Northwestern 
to include it in the complex and foot 
the bill for its restoration. 

I was always under the impression 
that restoration was a preser- 
vationist's specialty. I guess it might 
be, until it comes to accepting 
responsibility for the cost. 

The Old Line Avenue School was 
sitting there for the asking for 
several years before NSU bought it. 
If the preservationists were so 
concerned about it, they should 
have started raising funds or ap- 
plying for grants to restore it. 

Instead, they decided they would 
wait and let someone else foot the 
bill— and Northwestern stepped 
front the center. 

Now, the whole episode has come 
full cycle, and the preservationists 
are tickled pink, I would imagine. 
After all, they have saved the 
building and now area apparently 
on the verge of getting NSU to pay 
for its restoration. 

Maybe Grandma was wrong. You 
can have your cake and eat it, too. . . 

...The latest addition to the 
Northwestern skyline are the lights 
for the baseball field. 

Addition will hopefully allow 
more students and townspeople to 
attend the games at night. 
Professors will be happy when they 
learn it shouldn't be necessary for 
the baseball team to miss morning 
classes on the day if a home game 
any longer...

Bureacracy - Northwestern Style 

j RR3 could hardly believe my ears 
recently when I heard the disturbing 
rumor that President Bienvenu is 
suggesting a reduction in the 
number of professors at NSU. He 
might as well have suggested a 
reduction in students because one 
will surely follow the other. How 
can NSU, in good conscious, recruit 
new students through Inside View at 
the same time they are hacking away 
daily at the education which they 
can offer these students? 

Dr. Bienvenu, RR3 is not learned 
in university management; but, as 
anyone who has taken Management 
350 can tell you, the first to go 
should be staff members and not

Get rid of the surly maid on this 
floor of the Arts and Sciences 
Building who hasn't even got the 
common decency to pretend that she 
has work to do. Or the ones in the 
dorms with whole afternoons for 
watching soap operas. Evaluate 
your clerks and fire the ones who 
have so little to do and do it so 
inefficiently that no student on this 
campus has ever been spared days 
and even weeks of trying to correct 
simple clerical errors that could ruin 
a lifetime of education. 

Give these positions to students 
who will value the work and cost 
you nothing in fringe benefits and 
step raises. If you scoff at this 

suggestion, then you negate every 
diploma given at NSU. For what 
person truly qualified for a degree 
could not handle these simple tasks. 

Truly we have lost sight of our 
goals when we allow an inefficient 
bureacracy to grow and fester while

What am I to do, President 
Bienvenu? My stay here has already 
been prolonged by two semesters 
because so few 400 level classes are

teachers are eliminated, I may be 
here two more years. Do vou think 

that I have a printing press back 
home that cranks out more money 
even as this administration wastes 

You might suggest that I transfer 
to another insitution. Believe me, j 
have tried. Two state universities 
have refused over 30 hours of

Dr. Bienvenu, you were to be our 
salvation from a past filled with 
athletic fanaticism that sought t

country club. You promised quality 
education and I believed you. Please 
don't sell out to the simple answer.

beautiful campus, and specifically 
Chaplin's Lake. What's new is that 
Chaplin's Lake may soon be no 
more than an odd-shaped cesspool 
if cleanup operations are not 
started soon. 

The problem is that overone ton 
of waste material per day from the 
city water treatment plant is 
dumped into the scenic lake. 

The responsibility would seem to 
fall squarely on the city of Nat- 
chitoches, but the city of Nat- 
chitoches is what you would call flat 
broke. Mayor Joe Sampite says the 
city would like to remedy the 
situation, but simply can't afford it. 

"Nothing is being done because 
the cost is prohibitive at this point," 
he said. The city is in the hole to the 
tune of $600,000, and conservative 
estimates of cleanup costs for the 
lake run around the $100,000 mark. 

What actually is there in the lake 
that needs cleaned up? A sludge 
made up of everything that is 
filtered from the city's water, and 
NSU biology experts say the 
aluminum that is used in the 
filtration process is also being 
dumped into the lake. A study 
revealed there is more than 200 
times the amount of aluminum in 
Chaplin's Lake than in Sibley Lake. 

Along with being an eye sore, the 
sludge takes up valuable spawning 
area for the lake's fish population, 
and is so thick that biologists say the 
fish can't swim in it. The sludge also 
effects the bottom-dwellers in that 
section of the lake because they 
can't live under it. 

The lake is owned by the State 
Board of Education under terms of 
a lease signed around 1906 with the 
Rod and Gun Club of Natchitoches. 
It is not the property of the city, and 
the city shouldn't be allowed to use 
it for a dumping ground. 

The dumping started in the mid 
1960's because it was the "most 
economical method of disposing of 
the sludge." a city spokesman said. 
The only alternative proposal was to 
pipe the sludge some 50 yards across 
land and into Cane River. Fat 

The simple fact of the matter is 
that Northwestern officials should' 
have never allowed the dumping to 
begin. The present reality is they 
did, and now the lake suffering the 

Ideas for solutions abound, ideas 
for practical solutions are few and 
far between. 

The cost of cleanup is prohibitive, 
and there seems to be no chance the 
city will be able to fund any work on 
the lake in the next couple of years. 

It is not the responsibility of the 
university to foot the bill, but down 
the road, it might become a 
necessity if the lake is to be 

The only alternative solution 
seems to be to call in the En- 
vironmental Protection Agency, but 
no one really know who should 
call— the city, or the university. 

Chaplin's Lake is too much of an 
asset for NSU to waste. With a clean 
of the lake's possibilities are en- 

Northwestern's beauty has long 
been one of its strong points, but 
with visitors being greeted at one 
end of its main entrance by the 
sludge of Chaplin's Lake, its beauty 
certainly has deteriorated. 

The time has passed for a cleanup 
of the lake. Let's hope our officials 
can come up with a quick solution.

NSU Receives $1000 Gift 

The Northwestern Foundation 
has received a $1,000 gift from The 
New York Times Company and 
Joseph Raymond Ebarb of 
Brooklyn, N.Y., to develop an 
Ebarb Choctaw-Apache Indian 
Scholarship program at NSU. 

The scholarships were established 
through a $500 donation given by 
Ebarb and matched by his em- 
ployer, The New York Times 
Company. Ebarb, a native of Ebarb 
in Sabine Parish and a member of 
the Choctaw-Indian Tribe, has been 
a certified public accountant with 
The New York Times newspaper 
since 1964. 

Two Ebarb High School 
graduates have been selected to 
receive Ebarb Choctaw-Apache 
Indian Scholarships to enroll this 
fall at Northwestern. The recipients 
are 1979 graduate Naomi Lou 
Procell and 1980 graduate Myrna 
Gayle Ebarb, both of Noble. 

Ray Carney, executive secretary 
of the NSU Foundation, said the 
recipients of the scholarships were 
chosen because they possess 
leadership qualities to aid others in 
the Choctaw-Apache Indian 
community of Ebarb." 

Ebarb's Choctaw-Apache Indian 
community received state 
recognition from the Louisiana 
Legislature in 1977, which enabled 
the community to qualify for state 
Indian education program funds, 
assistance through the state Office 
of Indian Affairs as well as grants 
and social services.

Duper Surprises Crowds 

By Don Hudson 
Sauce Editor 

No one can say that Nor- 
thwestern sprinter Mark Duper 
didn't give it his best shot at the 
U.S. Olympic Trials held last week 
at Eugene, Oregon. 

A junior from Moreauville, 
Duper dazzled the crowds at the 
University of Oregon with his 
performances in the 200-meter dash 
competition and ended up finishing 
seventh overall among the nation's 
best amateur sprinters. His clocking 
in the finals was a 20.91, but that 
was after he had broken the school 
record in the event in one of his 
three successful preliminary heats. 

The 5-foot- 10, 174-pound Duper 
erased the old school standard of 
20.8 set by Robert Hardwell with a 
20.77 performance. Running with 
an injured back suffered three 
weeks ago at the NCAA Cham- 
pionships, Duper had posted the 
sixth fastest time in the event until 
the finals. 

"The sore back slowed Mark a 
little," said NSU track and field 
coach Jerry Dyes, "but I'm still very 
happy with his performances. This 
year is really his first taste of 
national competition, so I feel that 
this will be great experience for next 

Duper pulled a back muscle at the 
NCAA meet while running the 
anchor leg on the outstanding NSU 
400-meter relay team in a semifinal 

heat. His injury forced the Demons, 
out of the relay event, and Duper 
himself later had to withdraw from 
the semifinals of the 100-meter 

In the opening round of 
qualifications on Tuesday, Duper 
posted a 20.8 hand-time to finish 
second behind LaMonte King of the 
Stars and Stripes Track Club in the 
second heat. Later that night in the 
second round, he turned in a 20.85 
timing, good enough for third place 
and a spot in the semifinals. 

both sprints earlier in the season 
won the 200 in 20.49. Clifford Wiley 
of D.C International was second 
followed by Fred Taylor of the 
Philadelphia Pioneers, King, Willi, 
Gault of Tennessee and DwayiJ 
Evans of Arizona State.

standout Jarrott Handy of Baton 
Rouge, pulled a hamstring in hi$|

Duper had run a personal best of 
20.96 this season to qualify for the 
Trials as well as posting a 10.31 
clocking in the 100-meter dash to 
qualify for that event. He finished 
a disappointing seventh in his heat 
of the 100 with a 10.48 semifinal 
clocking and failed to qualify for 
the finals.

indoor and outdoor competition 
earlier this year by placing in the

Inside View ■ A Look 
At Recruiting NSU-style 

By David LaV ere 
Sauce Editor 

The third session of Inside View, 
NSU's freshman orientation 
program, began Sunday, with 148 
attending the three-day session. 

Basically, Inside View is a 
program which allows the recent 
high school graduate who has 
already applied to NSU for entry, to 
come to the school and check it out. 
The participant sleeps in the dorms, 
eats meals here, tours the campus, 
meets his prospective advisor, and is 
generally shown a good time. It is a 
brief introduction to college life. 
"We're trying to give incoming 
freshmen the information they need 
within the areas of the university 
without boring them to death," said 
Barbara Gillis, Coordinator of 
Orientation for NSU. 

According to Mrs. Gillis, basic 
information that an incoming 
freshman needs to know is provided 
at Inside View. Participants are told 
about Financial Aid, ROTC, 
univeristy programs and activities, 
and all sorts of other information. 

Inside View is associated with 
High School Relations, headed up 
by Danny Seymour. Mrs. Gillis and 
Agatha Newitt coordinate Inside 
View. There are also 10 NSU 
students, called Insiders that assist 
in the program. The Insiders are 
selected and paid $400 for the three 
summer session. The Insiders have 
weekend training sessions, and 
according to Seymour, train some 
everyweek since their selection. The 
Insiders are put in charge of the 
incoming students. 

The Inside View session begins 
with the participants checking in a 
NSU. They are assigned dorm 
rooms, given information material, 
meal tickets and parking permits if 
needed. The parents are also 

welcome on this first day. 

At approximately lp.m., there is 
an Insider Session in the Student 
Union Ball Room. The participants 
are seated and the 10 Insiders, 
dressed in Orange shirts and white 
pants, dance up to the stage to the 
tune of "We Are Family," which is 
the motto of the program. "We 
took that song and built our 
program around it," said Mrs. 
Gillis. While the tune is the same, 
the words have been changed, "We 
Are Family, Come to NSU and See, 
We Are Family ..." Other songs 
are done, "Hello Freshman, it's so 
nice to have you here at NSU ..." is 
to the tune of "Hello Dolly." 
Other include "Demons Are 
Beautiful People," and 
"Demonitis", which is a parody of 
Peaches and Herb's "Reunited." 

Following this, the program 
participants are officially welcomed 
to NSU, usually by President 
Bienvenu, but Sunday, it the Vice- 
President of Academic Affairs, Dr. 
T. P. Southerland. Dr. Southerland 
went down the list of the univer- 
sity's colleges and explained a little 
about each one. He gave a little 
NSU history and a lot of NSU 
praise. Dr. Southerland urged the 
people to "avoid thos things that 
are morally not right." 

At 2 p. m., the English Placement 
Test is given and then the freshmen 
meet in the their assigned groups. 
The groups consist of between eight 
and 14 freshmen headed up by an 
Insider. The groups are given names 
like: Amy's Army, Tony's Troops, 
Ginger's Giraffes, Kristy's Kritters, 
Roger Renegades, and other. 

At 3 p. m., the freshmen meet in 
their groups headed by the Insider. 
This is an icebreaker time, said 
Kristy Towry, an Insider. 
Icebreaker games are played. The 
M&m game - a freshman puts an 
M&m in his mouth and tells about 

Bass Named V. P. 
Fills Barron's Spot 

Dr. Rene J. Bienvenu recently 
announced the appointment of 
Morris F. Bass as Vice-President of 
University Affairs. Dr. Bienvenu 
stated that the appointment of Bass 
approved at a recent meeting of the 
State Board of Trustees for Colleges 
and Universities, and becomes 
effective immediately. 

Bass has held several positions in 
business and finance circles, the 
most recent being that of Vice- 
President of Business and Finance

Besides the new Vice-President, 
there has been other shufflings in 
the Northwestern administration. 
The Controller, Mrs. Laura 
Lavespere has retired effective of 
June 30. Mrs. Lavespere has been 
the NSU Controller for seven years 
and has been at NSU for over 25 
years, said Carl Jones, NSU 
Business Manager. 

Dr. Austin Temple has been 
appointed as Acting Registrar, 
replacing Mr. Walter P. Ledet who 
recently retired. Temple, who was 
moved from Director of Ad- 
missions, has been at NSU for 16 

Dr. Donald M. Rawson, the Head 
of the History Department, has 
been appointed as Acting Dean of 
Graduate Students. Dr. Rawson 
will temporarily hold both jobs, said 
Dr. T.P. Southerland, Vice- 
President of Academic Affairs. 

Curtis Wester has been moved 
from the Placement Office to a 
position of Admission Counselor. 
NSU is doing away with the position 
of Dean of Admissions. 

Bill Hochstetler, manager of the 
Rec Complex, has resigned, ef- 
fective August 31. The Student 
Union Governing Board is presently 
searching for a replacement. 

himself. The Boundary Breaker - all 
freshmen must respond to a

best movie you have ever seen? 
What is the ugliest thing you know? 
And there are other games. But

the university and then back to the

of the highlights of the program, 
This Morning, Live, a spoof based 
on Saturday Night Live. The In- 
sider's present the show with is done 
to give the freshmen more in- 
formation about NSU. The skits 
include such things as, The 
Coneheads Come To College, 
Rosanne Rosanadana Talks To 
Financial Aid, said Miss Towry. 
According to Mrs. Gillis, the whole 
point of the show is to provide 
information to the freshmen but to 
do it so that it is not boring. 

The afternoon calls for the 
freshmen to meet their advisors, 
another Insider Session with the 
group leader, and that night, a 
Cabaret-Disco. The Caberet-Disco 
has a lot of cheering, singing and 
comedy, all provided by the In- 
siders and various NSU volunteers. 
According to Miss Towry, the 
freshmen are encouraged to sing, 
cheer and participate. Songs like 
"Pop Goes The Weasel" and "On 
Top Of Spaghetti" are sung said 
Miss Towry. 

The final day, the freshman have 
breakfast with their advisors and 
then get to pre-register for the Fall 

By 12 p. m., the freshmen are 
gone, at least until the Fall. From 
last years Inside View, only 11 
participants did not return to NSU. 

If everything goes right this 
summer, there should be ap- 
proximately 300 new freshmen 
coming to NSU just through the 
Inside View program itself. 

Up at NSU 

Registration at NSU for the 
summer session is up by 194

As usual, female students at NSU 
outnumber the males by at least 2 to 
1. Females also outnumbered the 
males last summer, with 2130 
women to 1390 men. 

There are 1677 full-time un- 
dergraduates here this summer and 
663 part-time undergraduates. 

University College led the other

Coming Down 

Jerry Jones 

Demolition began this past week on the Art 
Center located on Central Drive. The Art 
Center, which was formally the old Student 
Center is being razed to make way for a new 

wing for the planned $9.5 million complex 
which will house the School of Creative and 
Performing Arts. 

Art Center Demolition Begins 

Construction began at Nor- 
thwestern this week on a $9.5 
million complex to accomdate the 
unviersity's new School of Creative 
and Performing Arts. 

Mclnnis Brothers, Inc., of 
Minden has been awarded a 
$7,597.00 contract to completely 
renovate the 40-year-old A. A. 
Fredericks Fine Arts Building and 
construct a new $6,000-sqaure-foot 
facility to allow interaction of 
music, art, dance and theatre 
academic program and activities. 

Loran Lindsey, director of the 
physical plant at NSU, said an 
additional $1.9 million has been 
appropriated to furnish the Creative 
and Performing Arts Center, which 
is scheduled for completion in mid- 

Harold DeKeyser of Alexandria 
and Robert Smith of Natchitoches 
are architects for the renovation and 
additions to the fine arts complex, 
which will provide a 126,640 square- 
foot facility for the School of 
Creative and Performing Arts. 

A wrecking crew from Bossier 
City began thiws past week 
demolishing the old Student Center 
in 1940, the building has housed the 
NSU Art Department in recent 

The new wing of the Creative and 
Performing Arts Center will house 
the Department of Art and per- 
formance groups from the 
Department of Music . 

Included in the center's north 
wing will be a 400-seat concert 
racital hall, rehearsal halls for the 
university's band, vocal groups and 
orchestra, storage areas, a recording 
studio and offices for directors of 
performance groups. 

Facilities in the wing for the Art 
Department will include a large art 
gallery, private studios for graduate 
students, a sculpture exhibition 
areas, faculty office studios, a 
student exhibition areas, classroom 
studios, a casting facility, 
photographic laboratory, caramics 
laboratory and foundry. 

Renovations will begin im- 
mediately on the old fine arts 
building and auditorium, which as 
constructed in 1940 and underwent 
major renovations and additions in 
1961 and 1966. The A.A. Fredericks 
Fine Arts Center was named in 1976 
in memory of a former Nor- 
thwestern president. 

The renovated, three-story 
building will house classrooms, a 
fine arts resource library and faculty 
studios for the department of 
Music. Renovations will provide the 
Department of Theatre with such 
facilities as large classrooms, a 
costume workshop, a scene con- 
struction workshop and three 
performance areas including a loft 
theatre and an experimental theatre. 

Lindsey said the primary feature 
of the multi-million dollar center 
will be a 1,500-seat auditorium 
offering continental seating, a 
carpeted lobby, a hydraulic or- 
chestra pit and the most modern 
staging, lighting and sound 
equipment available. 

The School of Creative and 
Performing Arts which will utilies 
the center was established in the 

summer of 1979 to provide in- 
novative academic training and 
experience to young people planning 
professions in the performing arts. 

Dr. George Stokes, dean of the 
College of Liberal Arts at NSU, said 
few universities in the nation "have 
comprehensive programs in creative 
and performaing arts, and few have 
the kind of facility that is being 
developed here." 

Stokes said the Center for 
Creative and Performing Arts "will 
not only be one of the most 
modernistic and comprehensive 
educational facilties in the nation 
but will also serve as a cultural 
center for our community and this 
entire section of Louisiana." 

Both the school and the complex 
are designed to "provde an at- 
mosphere of creative excitement and 

stimulation evoked by the close 
association and mutual support of 
the differnet areas of art," Stokes 

Besides the demolition of the Old 
Student Center, some of the roads 
around NSU have received a new 
surface this past week. NSU 
received $105,000 in federal funds 
to repave three of the university's 
main avenues. 

A two inch hot asphalt overlay 
has been put on S. Jefferson street, 
from the railroad tracks to the 
intersection of Caspari street by the 
Prather Coliseum. Sam Sibley 
Dirve, from its intersection with S. 
Jefferson near the President's 
house, all the way to the road which 
cuts off to the library has also been 
overlaid, along the Central Avenue, 
from the school entrance to its 
intersection with Sibley Drive.

La Vere's Report 
Women in Draft 

Well, for all you young men, 19 
and 20 years old, this is your big 
week. Remember all those things 
that the government "provided" for 
you: the right to vote in bought 
elections; the right to pay taxes; 
Social Security; and law and order. 
Well, this your first payment of 
three installments. Your next 
payment comew when you are told 
to report to Camp Sand-Flea for 
infantry training. The final payment 
comes when they set you down cold 
in front of some half-crazed enemy, 
whose whole desire in life is to use 
your lungs as a wall poster. 

Civil Rights groups are still 
fighting the registration plan. But a 
new development has taken place. 
The protest group say that 
registration, since it only involves 
men and not women, is a violation 
of men's civil rights. 

This is an interesting twist. Now 
I'm not really for women being 
drafted, but not for the reasons you 
think. It's not because I don't think 

the ladies could not do it. Women 
have proved to be able soldiers for 
years. Israel has drafted women 
since 1948. 

But it would not be fair to draft 
women unless the Equal Rights 
Amendment (ERA( is passed. 

Women have fought for the ERA 
for years. Anti-ERA people have 
scared many women away from the 
movement by telling them that if the 
amendment passes, women will be 
sent to war. Now protest groups are 
trying to get women off to war, but 
without giving them any of the 
benefits that the ERA would afford 

If the United States feel that 
women shoulder the responsibility 
of combat, then it is necessary for 
the ERA to be ratified first. You 
can't treat the majority of the 
population equal in some things and 
not in others. 

Before women are forced to 
shuffle off to the fights, lets give 
them the same rights as the men. 

Congratulations, Dan 

by Buddy Wood 

Last Friday, Northwestern lost 
probably its biggest fan. 

Dan McDonald, sports in- 
formation director for the past four 
years, resigned his position at NSU 
to accept the SID job at the 
University of Southwestern 

The announcement came as a 
surprise and shock to many, but 
mainly it came as a big blow to us, 
the Current Sauce staff. 

McDonald was more than just 
" Northwestern 's SID". He was a 
friend, a consultant and a big help 
to the Current Sauce, help bringing 
it back to a more professional-like 
newspaper that it is today. 

He was the first to offer advice 
and assistance when it was needed, 
and after serving as editor of the 
Current Sauce, most of what he said 
was always a big help. 

McDonald's presence at NSU was 
felt almost every day as he handled 
publicity, promotions and public 
relations for men's and women's 
sports. That includes ALL sports, 
and ALL publicity promotions and 
public relations. 

The Jonesboro native graduated 
from NSU in 1975, and while at 
NSU he was as big a part of the 
sports scene as he is now. McDonald 
was the first to admit it was a hard 
decision to leave Northwestern. 

"I really hate to leave NSU, and 
I'm sincerely serious about that," 
McDonald said. "I'll always 
consider this home. But it came to a 
point that I thought this would be 
the best for me and my family. 

"There are more opportunities at 
USL and it will be a challenge for 
me and that's what I thought was 
best. But you can bet that I'll be 
behind NSU all the way, except 
when they play USL," he added. 

McDonald's dedication to NSU 
and the betterment of NSU was 
limitless, and Jerry Pierce, director 
of informational services at the 
university, probably summed it up 

"We hate to lose Dan since he has 
done such an excellent job over the 
past four years," Pierce said. "He 
has added several new dimensions to 
our sports information program and 
to our athletic department with his 
diligence and dedication over the 
past years, and we wish him a great 
deal of success at USL.' 

Success is the only word to 
describe the endeavors McDonald 
has undertaken thus far. 

During his tenure as editor of the 
Sauce, the NSU student paper held a 
high quality of journalistic ex- 
cellence. His work as general 
manager of KNWD was also a big 
help in getting the campus' radio 
station to what it is today. 

After becoming NSU's SID, his 
awards were many, and he has 
helped to bring NSU to where it is 
today, and that is on the upswing. 

McDonald's College Sports 
Information Directors of America 
(CoSIDA( national award as "Best 
in the Nation" for his 19977 spring 
sports guide speaks for itself. He 
has also won many awards with 
football brochures, Lady Demon 
basketball guides and other such 
material that he has turned out. 

But awards and honors cannot 
really bring out what McDonald has 
meant to NSU. 

Important assistance and the "I'll 
always try to help you attitude" he 
possesses can, though. 

We, the Current Sauce staff, felt 
it necessary to make known what a 
guiding force Dan McDonald has 
been behind NSU for quite some 
time. Usually, editorials are 
something negative, but we felt this 
was a time when something truly 
positive was necessary. 

McDonald will be missed by all of 
us as he moves to his new post in a 
couple of weeks, but you can rest 
assured that what he left behind will 
be felt for a long time. 

In a nutshell you could say that 
NSU's loss will be USL's gain. 

Thanks for everything, Dan!

Radical Rag 111 

Students Can Make Their Own Education 

Well, the summer session is 
drawing to a close even as you read 
this, RR3 really wanted to leave you 
with a gem of wisdom to con- 
template during August-something 
to change your life. Unfortunately, 
the heat has taken its toll on me. But 
I know that no heat wave, no special 
session of Congress and no new 
presidential candidate (local or 
national) is going to stop the change 
that is coming to good old NSU. 

Yes, Virginia, NSU is in trouble. 
If all the rumors about increased 
fees, decreased faculty, financial 
troubles, and leaders who may be 
leaving are not true, NSU is still in 
trouble. NSU is suffering from the 
disease of low morale. Our halls, 
classrooms, dorms, and offices are 
infected with it. It's symptoms are 
lethargy, depression, pcor self- 
image, and lack of growth. It's 
victims are you and I, the students. 
Yes, everyone else on campus has a 
dose of it; but, we are the ones who 
are allowing it to inundate our 
growth and mar our future plans. 

I could blame it on the ad- 

ministration or the faculty and 
make all of you wildly happy; but, I 
can't. In good conscience, I cannot 
blame this situtaion on any of the 
usual scapegoats. I can only offer 
you the key to the answer and, if 
you choose to braid it into your 
hair, at least I'll feel better for 
having said it. This is the key: YOU 

I can hear you screams of protest. 
Well, I'm very sorry; but, this is a 
new ball park and you are a new 
person. It's true that education has 
been stuffed down your collective 
throats by a tricky slight of hand 
technique known only to elementary 
and secondary school teachers. But 
that's not the way that college is 
supposed to be. I have another flash 
for you: YOU'RE ALL GROWN 

I know that you cling tenaciously 
to your childhood. You want college 
professors to take your hands and 
lead you to education. You want 
colleges of offer classes based on 
bringing your education up to the 
high school graduate level. You 
want to play with your buddies and 

you want opportunity to find you. 
You want a flashy degree that will 
win you a good position, but, not if 
it involves study or creative thought. 
Well, get out of the kitchen, because 
you obviously can't stand the heat. 

Let me tell you what's good about 
old NSU. If you want to do 
anything, be anyone, or accomplish 
this because the overall involvement 
of the student body is such that you 
can be manager of the radio station, 
an officer in student government, a 
president of a professional 
fraternity, or an editorialist for the 
paper-all of which look extremely 
impressive on a job application. 
You can make some significant 
contact with the talented and ex- 
citing people who make up our 
faculty. I guarentee you that their 
offices are not crowded. Fur- 
thermore, they are suffering from 
the same disease as you. Together, 
you might cure each other. Imagine 
how it must feel to neverl be able to 
approach your potential as a teacher 
because your students don't wish to 
think or know about anything with 
a polysyllabic name. 

But, RR3, you say, NSU is going 
broke. Well, what do you expect? 
When you leave your trash all over 
the campus and the cafeteria, do 
you think the extra employees need 
to pick it up work for free? When 
you vandelize your rooms and your 
desks, do you think they heal 
themselves? When you refuse to be 
a responsible member of this 
academic community and won't 
contribute your efforts to the 
upgrading of programs or simple 
maintenance of our resources, do 
you think some other students will 

On that last count, you are right. 
I will do it and others just like me 
will do it. We will take these op- 
portunities to create the kind of 
college degree that wins friends and 
influences people. You are welcome 
to fight us for them, because there's 
more than enough glory to go 
around. So my thought for you to 
consider during the break is "sink 
or swim." I hope you all come back 
in the fall. It's easy to win the race, 
when the other runners won't even 
get up off the bench.

the outside appearance of racially 
mixed schools while in practice, 
segregation was maintained. 

It was especially prevalent in 
Alexandria schools. Elementary 
schools were virtually one-race 
instututions. Only at the high school 
level, and then only at two schools, 
was there any semblence of in- 

To make a long story shorter, this 
went on for ten years until a 
desegregation suit was filed last 
year. Last month, U.S. District 
Judge Nauman Scott released his 
plan for achieving racial balance in 
the Rapides system. 

The plan involved closing five 
schools, busing students up to 25 
miles, and ending the "neigh- 
borhood school" at the sixth grade 
level. It rubbed a lot of people the 
wrong way-but then, most any 
change rubs people the wrong way 
after ten years of false security. 

Now there are threats of secession 
from the parish by a group in Tioga, 
promises of private academies to be 
established, and general 
disagreement with the plan. 

ExtraS auce 

Worse, with too many parents the 
issue is not the quality of education 
their children might receive, byt 
rahter the color of people their 
children might have to go to school 

These parents are probably in the 
minority, but they seem to be the 
most noticeable opponents of the 
desegregation plan. 

I was in the fourth grade when 
desegregation rolled into Jackson 
Parish. Then, I couldn't understand 
why parents were so opposed to the 
idea of integrated schools. After all, 
I reasoned, sooner or later we would 
all be working together and living in 
the same town, and paying the same 
taxes, and facing many of the same 
problems. Why shouldn't we go to 
school together? 

Now, I still can't understand... 

...While I'm on the subject of 
things I can't understand Cong. 
Buddy Leach released a statement 
admitting over $272,000 in cam- 
paign debts fro the 1978 election in 
the Fourth District and claiming less 
than $500 in assets, but he can 
afford to run for re-election again 
this fall... 

...We haven't paid enough at- 
tention to natchitoches city 
government in the recent past, 
especially considering the impact it 
has on NSU. 

Maybe part of the reason is that 
we already have more than our 
share of problems, and with the city 
in the hole to the tune of $600,00, 
why bother? 

Joe Sampite is on the way to 
changing that. The recently- 
inaugurated mayor has already 
demonstrated a refreshing amount 
of candor in dealing with the public 
and the press. He says his door is 
always open and he means it. 

Already City Council has, at 
Sampite urging, hired a consultant 
to study the Chaplin's Lake sludge 
problem and propose a viable 
solution. He is oncerned about NSU 
and NSU students, and realizes the 
economic impact the university has, 
(and could have) on the community. 

Sampite has a job not many 

people would take. His performance 
this far has indicated he will do what 
he can to help NSU. Now, if the city 
can take greater interest in the 
university, why can't we at the 
university take a little more interest 
in the city? After all, this will be our 
second home for at least four 

That's Notebook for the summer. 
In the first column of the Fall 
semester, I'll report to my first love- 
-sports--and take a look at the 
Demon football team and its 
prospect this season. 

Until then, take it easy and ace all 
your finals.

Dear Sir: 

Thank you for an excellent article 
on Bayou Folk Museum. Mildred 
McCoy's generous bequest to NSU 
is too seldom called to our attention 
here on campus. 

I must disagree, however with 
Mrs. Higgs Monday's view that 
"the responsibility for the future of 
the facility rests squarely on the 
shoulders of Northwestern's 

The responsibility for the 
maintenance and growth of a 
museum rests with its director. He 
must see that the collection is 
catalogued, that the facility is in 

good repair, that the facility and its 
collection are insured, and that both 
are published. To my knowledge 
none of this has been done. NSU's 
students could certainly assist in this 
work, but it must be initiated and 
supervised by the director. Again, to 
my knowledge, there has been no 
attempt to enlist volunteer student 

I agree with Lucille Carnahan 
that this wonderful facility could 
become an important cultural center 
for Natchitoches Parish and all of 
northwest Louisiana, but to do this 
it will need a strong guidance and 
long-range planning from its

Professor Heading to Honduras 

Northwestern L. Williams will 
participate July 17-Aug. 10 in the 
first exploration of amphibians and 
reptiles inhabiting the "cloud 
forests" of Cerro Celaque, a 
mountainous region in Honduras. 

Williams and Larry Wilson of 
Miami Dade Junior College will 
work in an area at the top of the 
mountain that Williamdescribes as 
"perpetually in the clouds." 

The two scientists will study the 
kinds of amphibians and reptiles 
living in the area at an elevation of 
7,000 to 9,000 feet. 

"This area has not been explored 
before," said Williams, who in 1978 
authored one of the largest 
reference books on a single species 
of snake ever printed in the United 
States and Europe. "All we know 
right now is that there are quite a 
variety of frogs and salamanders as 
well as certain kinds of snakes, such 
as high-altitute vipers." 

New information obtained from 
the study will be published and will 
also provide the foundation for 
future ecological studies in the 
mountainous region, which is 
famous for the orchids and 
bromelids it produces for 
distribution by florists in the United 
States and other parts of the world. 

"I am very much interested in 

doing ecological work at Cerro 
Celaque," said Williams, who will 
have to transport equipment into 
the area by backpack and "maybe 
by mules. "I would like to go back 
to the area to set out traps to 
determine how abundant are the 
amphibians and repitiles and where 
they live." 

According to Williams, the top of 
Cerro Celaque rises into the clouds 
and gives the area a tropic-like 
effect. "The area is very moist, but 
it hardly ever rains," said the NSU 
herpetologist. "It's like a constant 
mist, and the temperature is con- 
stantly within a range of 68 to 72

Reichel Recommends End 
Of Riverbank Concerts 

The Natchitoches Chamber of 
Commerce Friday heard City Police 
Chief Jim Reichel reiterate his 
reasons for requesting that rock 
concerts on the city's riverbank 
parking lot be terminated. 

Reichel, who earlier this past 
week, recommenned that the City 
Council end the concerts, cited lack 
of prohibitions against open liquor, 
lack of restroom facilities, and 
other problems. 

"You had people who exposed 
themselves to one lady," said 
Reichel of last Sunday's concert. 
"It's a hot summer, tempers can 
flare and you can have a potential 

Reichel also cited that some of 
those in attendance were believed to 
have relieved themselves behind 
Exchange Bank and in alleys on 
Front Street. 

Reichel also complained of in- 
sufficient manpower to handle the 
crowds he estimated at between 500 
ann 700, as well as the lack of 
proper communicating devices. 

"I don't have a very big force to 
manage a river bank rock concert," 
Reichel told the Chamber. "I don't 
have sufficient manpower to quell a 

Reichel said he believes publice 
sentiment is on his side in wanting 
to see the concerts ended. 

Republicans Choose Reagan 

The Republican National 
Convention overwhelmingly 
nominated Ronald Reagan as their 
1980 Presidential candidate in 
Detroit Wednesday night. For a 
minute, it appeared that former- 
President, Gerald Ford would be 
Reagan's running-mate, but the 
plan fell through, and former 
Reagan rival, George Bush, was 
selected for the number two spot. 

The Reagan-Ford team was called 
the Dream Ticket by most 
Republicans, and was believed that 
the pair could easily win in the 
national elections. Word of the 
team-up went out to the press 
through unofficial sources and 
many newpapers around the 
country, including the Shreveport 
Times, had the Reagan-Ford team 
in headlines. 

But sometime after midnight, the 
deal fell through and George Bush 
was nominated to stand beside 
Reagan. Reagan broke precedent 
Thursday morning, when he per- 
sonally appeared before the con- 
vention and told the delegates that 
he had chosen George Bush and not 

"It was a total surprise to me," 
Bush told reporters. 

"It's an enormous compliment," 
he said. "I feel honored by it and I 
told him I would do what all 
Republicans should do, en- 
thusiastically support this platform, 
and secondly, I told him I would 
work, work, work, for his elec- 

All of Louisiana's delegates to the 
Republican Convention voted for 
Bush as Reagan's running-mate.

Accepts Cajun Job

July 22 1980 

McDonald Steps Up 

Northwestern sports information director Dan McDonald 
resigned his post Friday to accept the SID job at the 
University of Southwestern Louisiana. He had served four 
years as NSU's SID. 

NSU To Sponsor Camps 

Northwestern will sponsor a pair 
of special day camps in both 
basketball and softball this summer, 
according to coordinator of 
women's athletics Pat Pierson. 

Pierson said that the day camps, 
co-sponsored by the Demon Booster 
Club, would be for young girls in 
the fourth through the seventh 
grades and that the softball day 
camp would be August 4-8 and the 
basketball day camp would be 
August 1-15. 

"The goals of the camps are to 
provide recreation for the young 
girls and to involve ourselves more 
in the community," Pierson said, 
"and to teach the basic skills in the 
two sports and to start a foundation 
upon which the players can improve 
those skills in the future." 

Pierson, who will be serving as 
camp director, said that sessions 
would be from 8:30 until 1 1 :30 a.m. 
and from 1 until 4 p.m. each day. 
Girls must bring their own lunch 
and the camp will provide drinks. 

Campers are fully insured and 

Pierson will oversee the individual 
instruction by members of the Lady 
Demon basketball and softball 
teams. Registration is 8:30 a.m. on 
Monday, Aug. 4, at the ROTC 
fields on the NSU campus for the 
softball camp and Monday, Aug. 
11, in Prather Coliseum for the 
basketball camp. Each camper must 
bring a physician's statement to 

The cost of the camps are $45 
each and applications for each camp 
are available from any school in the 
parish or by writing to the Women's 
Athletic Department, Prather 
Coliseum, NSU, Natchitoches, LA 
71457, or by calling Pierson at (318) 
357-5891. Checks should be made 
payable to the NSU Girls Softball or 
Basketball Camp. 

"We're hoping for a large tur- 
nout from the community," said 
Pierson, "because we are hoping to 
make the two camps an annual thing 
and to do that we need the help of 
the people of the area." 

NSU sports information director 
Dan McDonald has resigned his 
position after four years at NSU to 
accept the SID job at the University 
of Southwestern Louisiana. 

Jerry Pierce, director of in- 
formational services at NSU, made 
the announcement last week and 
said the search for a new sports 
information director would begin 

McDonald, a 25-year-old 
graduate of NSU, will officially 
report to USL on August 4 and 
succeeds George Foster, who had 
served for four years as SID at 
Southwestern and who has entered 
private business in the Lafayette 

"We hate to lose Dan since he has 
done such an excellent job over the 
past four years," Pierce said. "He 
has added several new dimensions to 
our sports information program 
and to our athletic department with 
his diligence and dedication over the 
past years, and we wish him a great 
deal of success at USL." 

McDonald, a native of 
Jonesboro, came to NSU in August 
of 1976 after serving for a year and 
a half on the sports staff of the- 
Alexandria Daily Town Talk, and 
since that time has won five national 
awards for athletic brochures and 
publicati ons. 

McDonald, who handled all 
publicity, promotions, and public 
relations for men's and women's 
sports at the university, won a 
College Sports Information 
Directors of America (CoSIDA) 
national award as "Best in the 
Nation" for his 1977 spring sports 
guide, and his football brochure and 
program along with the spring guide 
won NAIA national first places 
during that season. 

His Lady Demon basketball guide 
has been honored as the top 
women's basketball guide in the 
country two straight years by a 
national women's sports magazine, 
and he just recently captured a 
CoSIDA district award for his 1979- 
80 basketball publication. 

At the just-completed La. Sports 
Writers Association Convention in 
Monroe, McDonald won his second 
LSWA award for sports brochure 
publication with a second place in 
the sports information category.

All-Star Games Set 

By Don Hudson 
Sports Editor 

Five NSU prep signees will be 
participating in the 43rd Annual 
Louisiana High School All-Star 
games held July 26 in Lafayette, 

Demon basketball signees Melvin 
Youngblood, Tracy Taylor and Kim 
Paulk are expected to be among the

Intramural Season Ends 

Northwestern's intramural 
program ended last week for the 
summer session and according to 
intramural director Ginger Parrish 
the program was a success. 

"Considering the number of 
students we have enrolled in 
summer school I feel that there was 
a great deal of participation," said 
Parrish, "and I'm really looking 
forward to the fall program." 

Los Amigos scored ten runs in the 
sixth inning in route to a 25-16 win 
over Southern Sluggers in the final 
game of the softball tournament. 
The Sluggers tied the score 13-13 in 
the third inning but could only 
manage to score three runs in the 
final four innings. 

The Sluggers scored six runs in 
the last inning to take a 10-7 win in 
the first game of the three game 
series with Los Amigos. Los Amigos 
followed with a six-run final inning 
to edge the Sluggers 10-8 in the 
second game. 

Joe Haindel scored 35 points and 
took first place in the Frisbee 
Contest. Joe Rome was second with 
25 points. 

Delphine Small won the women's 
division of the Frisbee Contest with 
45 points followed by Vicki 

Williams 34 points for a second 
place finsih. 

In the canoe race Kathy Kees 
teamed with Joan Darbonne in the 
women's division and Mark 
Schroeder in the men's division to 
win both divisions. 

Anthony Butler tossed in 24 
points as the Rough Riders edged 
out Phi Beta Sigma 50-46 for the 
men's three-on-three basketball 
championship while Reversed Oreo 
got 17 points from Tootie Cary in a 
42-32 win over Better Late Than 
Never in the women's league. 

Butler got help from Melvin 
Lacour who added 14 points and 
Elvis Robinson with 10 points. 

Dennis Brown lead the 
Sigmas with 17 points while Dwayne 
Lathan and Don Jackson both

Softball Team Inks 
Baton Rouge's McCaa 

Northwestern's Lady Demon 
softball team has concluded its 1980 
recruiting season with the signing of 
standout outfielder Mary Ann 
McCaa of Central High School of 
Baton Rouge. 

The announcement of the signing 
of the Lady Demons' seventh 
softball recruit of the season was 
made recently by NSU coordinator 
of women's athletics Pat Pierson. 
McCaa is the second player from 
Central of Baton Rouge to sign an 
NSU scholarship, with cathcer 
Tracie Dayries signing with the 
Lady Demons two weeks ago. 

Earlier the Lady Demons had 
inked Janet Guerrini of Sulphur, 
Nancy Hanley and Belinda Doucet 
of Church Point, Julie Cassel of 
Shreveport-Trinity Heights and 
Belinda Mayo of Leesville. 

McCaa was a unanimous All-

coach Carol Reeves, the Coach of 
the Year in the league and compiled 
a .339 batting average during the 
season. She also won the team's 
Captain Award in addition to her 
All-District selection. 

"Mary Ann was one of the most 
impressive players we had in our 
tryouts this year," said Pierson, 
"and we feel she'll be a big asset to 
our squad."

Sen. Long Returned For Seventh Term 

In the hottest congressional race 
in Louisiana, voters turned out 
Saturday to give 4th District in- 
cumbent, Claude "Buddy" Leach 
the lead over the other candidates 
and will face Charles "Buddy" 
Roemer in the Nov. 4 run-off. 

Leach was top man in the eight 
parish district, garnering a total of 
34,638 votes. Roemer took 30,440; 
Wilson, 28,003; Campbell, 13,435; 
Dunn, 8,040; and Carter, 1,295. 

The 4th Congressional District 
race was probably the most watched 
race out of Louisiana's eight 
congressional districts. It ws 
probably the hardest fought race 
between canididates, especially 
between the three front runners, 
Leach, Roemer, and Jimmy Wilson. 

A continuing battle between the 
three has been going on since Leach 
and Wilson edged out Roemer in the 
1978 election. 

Leach had been elected in the 
1978 runoff, but indictments for 
vote buying had plagued him all 
during his two'year term. Leach 
had defeated Wilson in 1978 by 266 
votes. Federal investigations of the 
election uncovered a number of 
Leach'bought votes in the Leesville 

area. Leach had been indicted for 
vote buying, but was acquited. 

In other congressional districts, 
incumbents were also returned. 
Representatives Bob Livingston, 
Lindy Boggs, Billy Tauzin, W. 
Henson Moore and Gillis Long were 
send back for another term. Rep. 
Jerry Huckaby of the 5th District, 
of which Natchitoches is a part, 
easily beat out his opponent, former 
canidate for governor, L. D. 'None 
of The Above' Knox. Huckaby 
took 89 percent of the districts's 

Sen. Russell B. Long was 
returned for his seventh term, with 
an almost 2 to 1 victory over state 
Rep. Louis B. 'Woody' Jenkins. 
Long was first elected on 1948. 

In the Natchitoches area, attorney 
John B. Whitakes took 54 percent 
of the parish's 10,000 votes, thereby 
taking the judgeship of the 10th 
Judicial District's Division A. 
Whitaker beat out another Nat- 
chitoches attorney, Richard Ware, 
who took 26 percent of the votes, 
and Sam Nelken, who gathered 19 
percent. Whitaker's win suprised 
many forecasters since the race was 
suppose to have been much closer 

than what it was. 

Both of Natchitoches' sales tax 
proposals were passed in Saturday's 
election. Propositions No. 1, which 
is a one'cent sales tax, was passed by 
78 percent of the city's 3,903 voters, 
an almost 4 to 1 passage. 

No Faculty Raises 
Says Dr. Bienvenu 

The NSU faculty will not be 
getting merit raises this year, said 
Dr. Rene J. Bienvenu at a meeting 
of the university faculty held Friday 
afternoon. But Bienvenu did an- 
nounce that all faculty members had 
received a 9.67 percent increase 
which was effective Sept. 1 . 

According to Bienvenu, one of 
the main problems facing NSU this 
year is the balancing of the 
university's Operating Budget and 
the Systems Budget, which the 
president described as "an albatross 
around our neck." "We are in the 
process of establishing an honest 
Operating Budget and Systems 
Budget. We were requested to shift 
funds or properly allocate costs. 
Where did the money come from. 
Not your raises. I just couldn't find 
money to give you raises this year," 
stated Bienvenu. 

Initially, a decision was made to 
diYide the cost of utilities between 
the Operating Budget, which is used 
to meet educational needs, and the 
Systems Budget, which is used for 
housing, food service, book store 
and such like facilittes. But a decline 
in enrollment and less people living 
in the dorms plus a rise in utility 
costs, has made it hard for the 
university to meet the payment of 
the bonds for the doriitories. 

Recently, the Board of Trustees' 
Finance Committee ordered the 
university to cut $500,000 from it's 
Personal Services Fund and transfer 
it to the Systems Budget in order to 
pay on this year's bonds. "The 
money was taken from positions 
that were unfilled," said Bienvenu. 
"No salaries will be cut." 

"In essence, we must set up a true 
budget for both accounts. I am 
going to the Interim Emergency 
Board to ask for assistance," said 
Bienvenu. "The Trustees supports 
us and I have no reason to believe 
that the Regents won't assist us." 

A<*™rHing to Bienvenu, the rise in 
utility cu^s and a decline in 
enrollment due to the building of 
LSU in Shreveport and LSU in 
Alexandria is what has hurt NSU. 
"We have been crucified on utilities 
for many years," said Bienvenu. 
"The answer to our problem is a 
change in the formula. I am op- 
timistic that a change will take place 
in the formula that will be good for 
NSU in enrollment situations." 

Bienvenu did give one example of 
how the university would meet the 
financial problem, and that is with 
the telephone bill. "The bill has run 
out of reason," said Bienvenu. 
"Our telephone budget was in 
excess of $230,000. We will look at 
it and put a realistic control on it." 

In order to encourage further 
student enrollment, Bienvenu has 
directed the department heads to 
begin devising a new core 
curriculum. "I think I contributed 
to the degradation of the old core by 
getting rid of all the liberal arts 
stuff and putting more sciences in 
it," said Bienvenu. "I'lm not saying 
the old one is wrong, but we must 
think of one thing - our product is 

our salvation." 

Bienvenu directed the department 
heads to begin examining every 
existing curriculum on campus. 
"Try to develop a curriculum of 
content, not hours. We want an 
educated student going out. It is 
imperative that the offering be 
educational and not used to protect 
any faculty member," said Bien- 
venue "Lets make a curriculum that 
will attract students and train 

But to compound matters for the 
university financially, Bienvenu 
stated that there was a problem at 
the Iil lie financial obligation. This 
year will probably be the toughest 
year of my life," said Bienvenu. 
"But the problem we have, we will 

Book Problems 
Hit Students 

An unprecedented number of 
students have been unable to buy 
books for their courses this 
semester, particularly for classes in 
accounting and computer science. 
According to Darlene Rachal, 
manager of the NSU bookstore, all 
reorders should be in by the first of 
this week. 

Shortages occured because the 
estimates of enrollments, which are 
prepared by the class instructors, 
were much lower than actual 
enrollment. The bookstore orders 
texts according to these estimates. 

Textbooks for the English 100 
classes were lost during shipment 
and have been reordered. 

Rising publishing costs have 
driven prices up by an average one 
dollar per text at NSU, which is 
lower than the two dollar increases 
reported by other university 
bookstores throughout the state. 

Rachal also emphasized that the 
costs of the recently reordered 
textbooks may be higher than the 
ones sold before classes began. "I 
know that it's only been a month," 
she said, "but, the price may have 
gone up." 

On rising book costs, Rachal said, 
"I realize how book costs effect the 
student; but, I sell all of my books 
at the publisher's list price. I don't 
add on any markup of my own." 


Last week the Sauce reported that 
SGA class senator elections would 
be held on Tuesday, Sept. 23. Due 
to a last minute change, the elec- 
tions will be moved up a day to 
Monday,Sept.2 2. Since the Sauce is 
published on Tuesday, we will be 
unable to publish the candidates 
pictures or statements. 

Propositon No. 2, which rededicates 
an existing city sales tax for use in 
funding the city's portion of a 
proposed $13.5 million sewerage 
facility, also passed heavily carrying 
with 81 percent of the vote. 

Natchitoches, which has fallen 

$800,000 into the red during the 
past two fiscal years, should receive 
$80,000 per month from the passage 
of the sales tax. The measure is also 
expected to give city residents a 
break in increased garbage fees * a 
desperation hike imposed by the 
City Council shortly after failure of 
February's tax proposal. 

Dining Hall Lines 

Jerry Jones 

If it's not long lines at Registration, it is long 
lines at the dining hall. With a breakdown of 
much of Iberville's cooking equipment, long 

lines could be a problem for many days to 

Repairs Needed At Dining Hall 

Oh no! Is it dinner time again? 
This phrase is muttered just about 
every night by students who go to 
eat at Iberville Dinning Hall. The 
food isn't cooked right, they don't 
put any salt in the food, and they 
don't give you big enought portions, 
are some of many complaints. 

Linda Nicholas, manager of 
Iberville, says that the food doesn't 
taste as good as home cooking 
because they have to have limittions 
on how much salt they use, and 
when you cook for over a thousand 
people not everyone will be 

Most of the problem seems does 
not come from the staff or what 
kind of food they order, it comes 
from the rundown kitchen that is 
now being used in the cafeteria. 

Bill Behling, manager for SAGA 
foods on campus stated tht 50% of 
the ovens and 75% of the grills 
don't work. And you can't cook 
food and keep it warm for a 
thousand people when you are 
operating at half. 

Behling also said that it isn't 
really the university's fait for having 
rundown facilities, he realizes that 
money is tight and the university 
doesn't have the budget to replace 
the faulty equipment. 

One night last week sevice was 
very poor, this night was steak 
night, and it just so happened it was 
the same day a drain broke down on 
the side of the cafeteria that is 
normally used serving. The result 
was long lines and upset students. 

Nicholas commented that the 
university came out to fix the drain 
as soon as it was reported, and 
several other things went wrong that 

Nicholas is trying to eliviate some 
of the problems with long lines by 
putting in a sandwich bar at lunch. 
Students can use this without going 
throught the long lines to get trays. 

She stresses to students to come 
back and get as many helpings as 
you want. And to tell her when you 
have a complaint. 

Behling said they try to have a 
variety of foods but the facility 
doesn't allow that to happen. 

Behling also noted that the food 
service people along with Cecil 
Knotts aretrying to organize a 
special food committee. This would 
be a place where representatives 
from different dorms could take 
complaints, compliments, and menu 
variety could be discussed. 

Nicholas said on a final note, that 
the cafeteria likes to hear comments 
from the students, and that they will 
try to bread the monotony of eating 
by having special events such as the 
movie next week that will be shown 
in Iberville Dinning Hall. 

Behling stated that Nicholas is 
doing everything she can to run the 
cafeteria efficiently. The problem 
does not lie with the staff, but with 
the equipment. One day nothing 
will work and thats when the state 
will say ok, lets fix it.

Rat Runs Rampant In Rapides 

By David LaVere 
Sauce Editor 

Do you remember the movie 
"Monty Python and the Holy 
Grail", where the cave which 
housed the Grail was guarded by the 
killer rabbit. Well, we have reason 
to believe that his cousin, a super- 
rat, was hanging around Rapides 

Last Monday night, junior, Steve 
Soileau and his room-mate, senior, 
Pat Wartelle, were peacefully 
sleeping in their room on the first 
floor of Rapides dorm. Steve was 
awakened during the night by 
something crawling on him. 
Thinking it was a dream, he went 
back to sleep. A few minutes later 
he felt it again and later on, he again 
felt something on him. Steve woke 
up Pat, informing him that he 
believed that there was a rat in the 
room. Pat, always a steady one, 
told Soileau to go back to sleep since 
they had class the next morning. 

Well, Tuesday night, Pat walked 
into his room, and there, looking 
mean as ever, was a small rat. Pat 
chased him into a cabinet over the 
closet, and always the steady one, 
loudly called for reinforcements. 

Reinforcements arrived num- 
bering about three-fourths of the 
first floor. According to Richard 
Fillet, General Manager of KNWD 
and a front-line participant in the 
ensuing battle, the fight lasted for 
about five minutes. "We had four 
guys on the floor chasing the rat. 
That was our first string. Then 
there were about six different guys 
standing on the beds, yelling and 
screaming. That was our second 
string. And then there were about 
between ten to fifteen guys 
crowding around outside the door, 
yelling and cheering. That was our 
third string," said Fillet. 

"It was running really fast," 
claimed Fillet. "It was going under 
clothes and the desks, but we finally 
caught it and tried to transfer it to a 
styrofoam ice chest." Weapons 
used in the melee were two halves of 
a cardboard box, an ice chest, a 
thick towel and a tennis racket. 

As the transfer was about to take 
place, the rat escaped and the fight 
was resumed. "Everyone jumped 
back on the bed and started yelling 
and cheering again," said Fillet. 

The second time the rat was caught 
witn an ice chest. "We put plastic 
over the top of it, so we could look 
at it for awhile," said Fillet. 

The next morning the imprisoned 
rat was taken to Housing, where 
Fillet was told that the rat probably 
came from the swamp area between 
Rapides and the junior high. 
Housing said that at one time they 
had tried to cut the area down, but it 
was suppose to be one of the last 
remaining habitats for Rice rat. 

Fillet then took the rat to the 
biology building where he was told 

that the rat was not a rice rat, but a 
cotton rat. 

According to Dr. Dick Stallings 
of the Biology Department, the area 
between Rapides and the junior high 
was not the habitat for the rice rat, 
but the area out past the Teacher 
Education Building by the bypass 
was. "Rice rats like lower, wetter 
ground," said Stallings. Cotton 
rats like cool, dryer areas, said 
Stallings. Stallings believed that the 
rat probably went into the dorm 
looking for a cooler place since it 
has been so hot this summer. 

According to Loran Lindsey of 
Physical Plant facilities this is the 
first incident that has been reported 
in a long while. "Remember, we 
have just opened the dorms up and 
it could have gotten in there over the 
break," said Lindsey. Lindsey 
stated that maintenance would 
immediately begin putting out 

The rat was turned over the the 
Biology Department. But in a 
daring undertaking, the rat escaped 
from it's prison in the building and 
is now at large in the Biology 

To Dorm Or Not To Dorm? 

Every semester students wishing 
to live off campus apply to the 
Student Services office for special 
permission. According to the 
Student Services office for special 
permission. According to the 
Northwestern catalogue, all full- 
time unmarried under-graduates 
must live in the dormitories. 

In a recent survey of students who 
have been granted permission to live 
off campus, several reasons for 
being allowed to leave the dorms 
were offered. Among them were 
homosexuality, religious doctrines, 
dietary requirements, and im- 
pending nervous breakdown. 

Claiming to be commuting from 
home was an extremely popular 
method of avoiding dorm life. Also, 
people who have been married and 
are now divorced or widowed are 
considered eligible for off campus 

Some of the reasons which are 
commonly given for wanting to 
live off campus include privacy, 
freedom to have members of the 
opposite sex as visitors, and the 
smallness and unattractiveness of 
the dorm rooms. 

Not all students who could live 
off campus do; and they cite the 
considerably economical price of 
the dorm rooms, the short supply of 
decent rental units in the Nat- 
chitoches area, and convenience as 
their reasons for remaining on 

For students who do live in the 
dorms and would like to improve 
their surroundings, the Housing 

office continues to allow students to 
paint their rooms. Prior to the 
summer semester, the housing office 
was able to supply free paint to the 
students; but, rising costs have 
necessitated charging the students 
for the paint. 

White and pastel paints, the only 
color allowed in the dorms, is 
available from the Carpenter's 
Shop through the Housing office. 
The finished job is checked by 
Becky Brown of Housing. 

For students who have little or no 
experience in decorating, the June 
edition of "House and Garden" 

magazine offers some suggestion 
about color choice. "White tends to 
reflect emotions. To create a 
soothing atmosphere, use a warm 
color or brown tones." 

The magazine's editors also offer 
suggestions for self-expression 
through color. Blue, for instance, is 
noted as an intellectual color, good 
for study areas and offices. 

Pastels, such as are offered by the 
Housing office, are supposedly an 
immature and youthful choice; but, 
very effective to make a small space 
seem larger.

Foundation Gets Grant 

Rapides Rat 

Magale Foundation of Shreveport 
has awarded a $4,178 grant to 
Northwestern's Foundation for the 
publication of abstracts and an 
index of colonial documents 
available in NSU's Eugene P. 
Watson Memorial Library. 

NSU library director Donald 
MacKensie said the abstracts and 
index will be published this fall in a 
140-page booklet that will include 
brief but valuable information on 
several hundred manuscripts written 
before 1804. 

The translation from French to 
English, abstracting, indexing and 
compiling of the material for 
publication was achieved by Mrs. 
Carol Wells, assistant archivist at 

Mrs. Wells said more than 400 
manuscripts representing several 

different collections have been 
prepared for publication. The bulk 
of material which has been ab- 
stracted and indexed is in the 
prestigious Melrose Collection at 

"There are numerous legal 
records from the Natchitoches 
Parish courthouse, especially some 
good colonial documents in the 
collection we have compiled for 
publication," said Mrs. Wells.

Fines To Be Issued 

If you are in the habit of parking 
your car in front of Natchitoches 
dorm, on Sibley St., you are subject 
to a $38 fine. 

Chief Lee from Campus Security 
asks students not to park their cars 
in front of the dorm because it is 
obstructing traffic, and the city can 
assess a fine.

Concert Committee Hopes 
To Schedule Rock Bands 

The student union governing 
boards (SUGB) Concert Committee 
held theirfirst meeting of the 
semester last Tuesday. Eighteen 
bands were up consideration to 
perform an early fall concert, but no 
decision was reached. 

We're looking for a rock and roll 
concert this time, said Bill Corry, 
chairman of the committee. Last 
spring we had Crystal Gayle and KC 
and the Sunshine Band. 

Corry had a list of bands and 
their prices at the meeting. Some of 
the bands were: Air Supply, 
Atlanta Rhythm Section, Ohio 
Players, Eddy Money, Pat Benatar, 
Ambrosia, Poco, Eddy Rabbitt, 
Little River, The Dirt Band, and 
Michael Murphy. 

The bands still under con- 
sideration are Pure Prarie League, 
Atlanta Rhythm Section by 
theselves, the SOS Band, and a 
possible package deal with Little 
River Band and The Dirt Band. 

Representatives from a local 
promotion agency, Dawg-Rach 
Productions, were on hand at the 
meeting and mentioned that thwre 
was a possibility of getting Black 
Oak Arkansas and Blackfoot 
together this fall. 

The committee, which has a wide 
variety of musical tastes, basically 
agreed that it was time for rock and 
roll, but the members could not 
really agree what was exactly rock 
and roll. Can you possibly have a 
Rock Concert and a Soul Concert, 
asked committee member, Gwen 
Coward. I don t listen to rock, but I 
do like soul. 

Since none of the bands really 
excited the committee, the members 
voted to postpone their decision on 
an early concert band until Thur- 
sday, Sept. 25, When the committee 
will meet again in the Student 
Union. This would give Dawg'Rach 
Productions time to come up with 
more information on the Blackfoot 
and Black Oak Arkansas idea and 
also give enough time to see if any 
other bands would be available. 




He said that the student would 
receive the ticked through Campus 
Security, and it would be brought to 
court downtown, and the fine would 
be assessed. 

Lee urges students not to park 
their cars there because it is a busy 
intersetion and someone could end 
up getting hurt. 

Campus Security had been issuing 
warnings to people parked in that 
area, and they report that the 
situation is clearing up. 

New Courses 
In Theatre 
Now Offered 

According to Dr. E. Robert 
Black, head ot the newly named 
Department of Theatre and Speech, 
several new courses are being of- 
fered by the department as part of a 
gradual curriculum change to a 
Bachelor of Fine Arts program. 

The department, which was 
formerly called the Department of 
Speech and Journalism, has had its 
letter of intent to request the B.F.A. 
degree accepted by the Board of 
Trustees. Dr. Black is now in the 
process of preparing the proposals 
for final approval. 

Northwestern will be the only 
university or college in the state to 
offer this particular degree 
program. Several schools offer the 
Bachelor of Arts in Theatre degree, 
which is not as borad-based as the 
B.F.A. All of the surrounding states 
have B.F.A. programs at their 
major universities. 

The Bachelor of Liberal Arts in 
Speech degree will still be offered 
for students who are not interested 
in the arts, along with the Bachelor 
of Arts in the School of Education 
program, which will be enriched 
with more classes in the dramatic 

Among new classes being offered 
now and in future semesters are 
Theatre 121 and 221, the beginning 
and secondary courses in oral in- 
terpretation. With these additions, 
the Theatre 321 and 421 classes will 
be upgraded to include more theory 
of interpretation and a wider variety 
of experience in Reader's and In- 
terpreter's Theatre. 

Theatre 312, introduction to 
directing, has also been added. This 
allow Theatre 422, formerly stage 
direction, to be changed to a course 
in contempoary staging for the 
director. Theatre 322, will now be 
the advanced directing course. 

Other changes in the curriculm 
are epected as the department shifts 
its emphasis to a fine arts, rather 
than debate and public speaking,

Lopez Fights Student Apathy

Cliff Lopez— SGA President 

Renovations Underway 

Probably no one that entered 
NSU when it opened 96 years ago 
would recognize the school now. In 
fact, very few who graduated in 
1960 would be able to recognize the 
university. And at the rate the 
school is now changing, very few of 
us will recognize it in a few years. 

Over the past 10 years a $20 
million expansion program has 
chaged the face of the campus 
considerably, and students now 
enrolled in the fall semester should 
be prepared for more changes in the 

Work should soon be completed 
on the renovation of Prather 
Coliseum, which was the reason Fall 
registration was held in the Health 
and PE Majors Building. 

Work is already in the final phase 
on Northwestern's $11 million 
athletic comples, and the long- 
awaited nine-hole golf course 
should soon be a reality at the 
university's $2 million Recreation 

During the summer, NSU opened 
it's new $329,000 meat processing 
laboratory. The laboratory is 
designed for the training of students 
in the various meat processing job 
skills and the training of new 
technical workers for the meat 

The demolition of the old Art 
Center has been completed to make 
way for a new $9.6 million Creative 
and Performing Arts Center, which 
will include the complete renovation 
of the A. A. Feedericks Fine Arts 

In the final planning stages are a 
new $3.5 million elementary 
laboratory school on the campus 
and a $1.2 million program for the 
development of an energy 
management system and a utility 
master plan. 

Northwestern has also received $1 
million for the conversion of Caddo 
Hall dormitory to a married student 
housing complex and for the 
conversion of Prudhomme Hall 
dormitory to a center for continuing 
education and public service 

Bids will alsobe accepted this fall 
on a $1 .3 million education building 
on the NSU Fort Polk Campus. 
Included in the facility will be a 
modern library, multi-media center, 
science laboratory, computer 
science laboratory, business ad- 
ministration laboratory, classrooms 
and offices. 

Open Fires 

Student who are planning to 
spend any time in Kistachie 
National Forest in the near future 
should be advised that open fires 
have temporarily been prohibited. 

Because of the early fire season in 
Louisiana, David Hessel, Kistachie 
National Forest Supervisor, has 
issued the order which went into 
effect on Thursday, Sept. 4 and will 
remain in effect until cancelled. 
Violations of the order are subject 
to a fine and possible imprisonment. 

The fire order is not a closure to 
entry; it is only to prevent the use of 
stoves or stick-built fires in un- 
developed areas. Use of stoves and 
campfires will be permitted in 
National Forest Campgrounds and 
Recreation Areas having facilities 
developed for controlled use of fire.

Sauce News Editor 

A question that is often asked at 
Northwestern is, 'What is the SGA ' 
Well, one of the objectives that the 
President of the Student Govern- 
ment Association, Cliff Lopez, has 
is to try to make students more 
aware of the SGA and how they can 
become invovled with it. 

Lopez stated that the main 
problem lies with student apathy, 
and how students are not willing to 
get invovled with anything. He also 
mentioned unlike other campuses in 
the state, Northwestern doesn't 
have the administration problem 
with the SGA as other campuses do. 

His long term goals for the school 
year are; improving the lighting 
around dorms, and trying to get 
Chaplains Lake cleaned up. Of 
course, the SGA has several other 
goals for the year, but Lopez 
stressed these two as their main 

The lighting problems deal with 
an inadequacy of lights around the 
female dorms, as it is parking in the 
areas around Natchitoches dorm 
can lead to a expensive traffic ticket. 

Security around the dorms are 
trying to be improved too. 

The cleaning of Chaplain's Lake 
depends on the 1 cent tax increase. 
If that falls through Lopez men- 
tioned calling in the Environmental 
Protection Agency. 'After all the 
big thing stressed at Northwestern is 
how clean it is, and when you look 
at Chaplain's Lake its just an 

When apathy is discussed, Lopez 
mentions, 'Everyone should be 
involved in something.' And he also 
states that the apathy at NSU is 
about average compared to other 
Universities in Lousiana. 

Lopez is striving to improve the 
image of Northwestern, and he feels 
that for a long time people looked 
down at NSU. But that image has 
changed alot, apathy may be bad 
but not as bad as it was several years 
ago, people are interested in dif- 

Spouse For 
Con Sought 

"I will pay $ for any avail female 
willing to marry me; no sex." 
Money magazine reports that ex- 
serviceman Michael Easton, 27, 
currently serving a 15-yer term for 
bank robbery at the Oregon State 
Penitentiary, placed this ad in a 
surbuban portland weekly in hopes 
of reaping increased Veterans 
Administration (VA) benefits. 

Easton currently collects $311 
monthly in VA support payments 
because he attends classes offered 
for prisoners by a local community 
college. A man with dependents gets 
more money, hence the ad- 
vertisement for a wife. From 80 
hopeful respondents, the 
prospective bridegroom picked a 
woman with three kids so he could 
qualify for $515 monthly. Though 
Easton promised to pay or a divorce 
in three years— upon his 
graduation— the bride-to-be got 
cold feet and left him at the prison 
chapel altar. 

If his next ad— for a wife with 
three children— works, Easton's VA 
checks (which he'll bank) would add 
up to a tax-free $21,000. Including 
SVi percent interest compounded, 
his savings will total $35,500 by 
1985, when he's eligible for parole.

with the SUGB planning for TECH

organizations are searching for ways 
to keep students on campus for the 

The SGA is a governmental 
process involved with student 
organizations. And Lopez stresses 
that if anyone has a problem with 
the administration, the dorms, or 
with the food service, to complain 

to the SGA. Lopez also stated that 
alot of times students get mad, and 
don't do anything because they 
don't feel anything can be done. 
But, SGA can get things done. 

On a final note Lopez says, 'I 
have a short period of time here, 
and I'm just trying to improve 
Northwestern , and anything I can 
do to improve things for someone 
else is worth my time.' 

Some SGA legisltion that was 
passed at last Monday's SGA 
meeting was, a new bill by David 

Stamey that would call for the 
immediate cleanup of Chaplains 
Lake. Another bill brought up at 
the meeting was by Joe Stamey that 
requested for the NSU student 
phone book to be delivered as soon 
as possible for maximum student 
use, or not be printed. 

Lopez is a 1978 graduate from 
Huntington High School in 
Shreveport. He is currently active in

Fellowship of Christian Students. 

Steps Help Prevent Auto Theft 

A car is stolen in this country 
every 28 seconds, according to FBI 
quarterly reports and the Alliance of 
American Insurers. Over 12,300 
licensed, registered vehicles were 
stolen in Louisiana last year and 
6,088 stolen in Orleans Parish 

Twenty years ago, the vehicle 
recovery rate was approximately 92 
per cent but it has dropped to an 
alarming 40 percent today. Though 
the amateur car thief still thrives, a 
new breed of sophisticated, trained 
professionals has emerged at the 
center of a multi-million dollar 
business increasingly controlled by 
organized crime. More than likely, 
the owner of a stolen vehicle will 
never see his car again in its entirety 
because it is destined for a "chop 

These skilled underworld steal-to- 
order garages take only 30-45 
minutes to slice and strip a car down 
to parts for profit. A car valued at 
around $6,000 may be worth 
$12,000 in parts. Professionals 
utilizing air cutters and power tools 
can mix and match parts and sheet 
metal to create practically new 
vehicles. The lack of vehicle 
identification numbers on major 
automobile components makes this 
easier and renders identification of 
stolen parts and subsequent legal 
prosecution extremely difficult. 

The State Office of Consmer 
Protection (OCP) endorses the 
following manufacturers' vehicle 
production changes proposed by the 
National Highway Traffic Safety 

1. The hood latch must be 
releasable only from the passenger 

2. The ignition key must be 
different from the door and trunk 

3. Installation of door lock 
buttons such as round or straight 
knobs that cannot easily be opened 
by external devices like coat 

4. Door locking mechanisms 
inside the panel must be shielded to 
prevent tampering. 

5. The ignition system must have 
a capacity to become inoperable if 
the ignition lock is removed. 

6. Ignition wires must be 
protected to reduce hot-wiring 

7. The ignition key alarm must be 
equipped to continue whenever the 
engine is turned off, the ignition key 
is left in the ignition and the door is 

Law enforcement officials usually 
agree that in most circumstances, 
five to ten minutes is the maximum 
time a thief can safely allow to steal 
a car. Don't ignore basic rules of 
safety believing that: "It won't 
happen to me." 

The OCP further urges con- 
sumers to follow this simple daily 
checklist to avoid auto theft: 

1 . Always lock your car, close the 
windows and take the keys. 

2. Never leave an extra set of keys 
in a "secret" hiding place, such as 
the ashtray, above the visor, or 
under the floormat, seat or hood. 
You will never fool a car thief. If 
you feel more secure with an extra 
set of keys, keep them with you. 

3. Always park in a populated, 
well-lighted area. Turn your front 
wheels sharply right or left to make 
it more difficult for a professional 

to tow your car away. 

4. If possible, park in attended 
lots and leave only the ignition key. 
Do not leave a key on which your 
key code numbers appears. 

5. Lock any packages and 
valuables in the trunk. Theives do 
steal cars just for the articles in 

6. Keep registration papers in 
your purse or wallet, not in the 
glove compartment, unless required 
by law to do so. In this case, make a 
copy of your registration papers and 
keep it with you. 

7. Never leave your car running 
unattended in order to warm it up or 
to "run" into a store or your home, 
particularly with children waiting in 
the car. 

8. Install an anti-theft device in 
your car. Remember to activate it 
before leaving the car. 

9. Be wary of buying an 
atomobile or parts from anyone 
other than a reputible dealer, and 
never buy a vehicle without a valid 

I.D. Required at Lake 

The next time you go down to 
Chaplain's lake you better bring 
along your student I.D. That's right 
folks, university members are the 
only ones who can use Chaplains 
Lake and any other campus facility. 

Mr. Bob Wilson from the Student 
Affairs office said that this is 
nothing new it is just being re- 
emphasized on University policy. 

Wilson also stated that it is an 
effort to avoid vandalism, litter, 
pollution and some problems that 
have come about in the past few 

The problems mentioned are 
mainly loitering and drinking 
problems and the university feels 
that it needs more security around 
the lake area. 

Another problem that stems form 
the facilities are whenever someone 
who is not affiliated with the 
university they must provide their 
own insurance. 

Wilson did state that persons not 
associating with the campus can use 
the facilities if they first contact his 
office between the hours of 8 a.m. 
and 4:30 p.m., at 357-6511. And if 

they get their function listed on the 
Master Calendar. 

Anything scheduled at NSU has 
to be placed on the Master 
Calendar, They need to be able to 
do it without conflicts in scheduling. 

Wilson stressed that the facilities 
are mainly for student use, however, 
they can accomadate non-university

La Vere's Report 
Cancelled Concert 

You recall how we students are 
always complaining about that there 
is nothing for us to do in Nat- 
chitoches, and because of that, most 
of us head back to the folks every 
weekend. Well, did you know that 
there was a rock concert planned for 
this past Sunday at the National 
Guard Armory. 

Two good bands were scheduled 
to appear, Daily Planet, who has 
packed out the Cane River Com- 
pany, and Aura, who is just as 
good. But, like so many things 
around here, it didn't come off - the 
Natchitoches Chief of Police, James 
Reichel cancelled it, the reason 
being, according to the promoters, 
is that he just doesn't want 
rock'n'roll in the city. 

Rock has been with us for about 
17 years, and has always seemed to 
scare the hell out of anyone over the 
age of 35. Those deadly Beatles 
started it all with those evil, un- 
American lyrics like, "I love you, 
yeah, yeah, yeah." Of course, what 
really made them bad, was the fact 
that they had long hair, pointy-toed 
shoes and used more than four frets 
on the guitar. 

It's been 11 years since the 
ultimate rock concert took place - 
Woodstock. And with the 
thousands upon thousands of 
people who gathered there, there 
were no fights or riots. Something 
that Chief Reichel seems to think 
will take place whenever rock and 
roll is played. 

I'm sure the promoters for 
Sunday's scheduled concert, Dawg- 
Rach Productions, were not at- 
tempting another Woodstock, but 
just trying to give the NSU students 
and some of the citizens of Nat- 
chitoches something to do on a 
Sunday afternoon. Also, if you 
didn't know it, Sunday's concert 
was to have been a benefit for the 
Natchitoches Animal Shelter, a 
division of the police department 
that has been suffering from lack 
of funds for a mighty long while. 

It seems that rock and roll is not 
respectable in Natchitoches, even 
thought it brings in more money 
than any other style of music. It 
beats out Adult Contemporary, still 
tops Country and has even survived 
Disco. As Neil Young says, " Rock 
and roll is here to stay." Bot it 
seems that money made by rock and 
roll is tainted moneyn 
can't be osed by any self-respecting 
cause; at least in Natchitoches. 
Even President Carter used rock 
and roll to get elected. So its good- 

bye young pups and kittens, we 
can't feed you, so we have to kill 
you, cause we don't want rock and 
roll and Disco just doesn't bring in 
the bucks. 

When the older people hear the 
term rock and roll, their minds 
conjure up wild scenes of huge 
orgies, drunken men and women 
running around naked, making love 
in huge vats of wine, all the time 
listening to that satanic music. 
Then, after getting good and drunk, 
with the music still pounding in 
their temples, they run out into the 
town, and loot every store they can 
find. Wow! That sounds like fun. 
Where can I buy tickets for that 
concert and who is playing. Of all 
the concerts that I've been to, I've 
considered myself lucky to get away 
with smuggling a few cans of beer 

Would it have made any dif- 
ference to the Chief if it would have 
been a Country Music concert. Now 
there's a potential riot. Two 
hundred heavy-drinking cowboys, 
each with their own bottle of Jack 
Daniels. Any policeman with any 
experience realizes that a mob thats 
been drinking hard liquor is a lot 
harder to quell than a mob thats 
been drinking beer or smoking 

It was Chief Reichel who wanted 
to put an end to the city's Sunday 
evening riverbank concerts, because 
he felt he wouldn't be able to handle 
a riot if it broke out. Mayor Sampite 
put an end to the Chief's idea, thank 
God. Wait til the Chief sees the 
Christmas Lights Festival if he, 
wants to see a potential riot. At 
Christmas Lights there are about 
200,000 people in Natchitoches, and 
there are not enought law en- 
forcement officials in North 
Louisiana to stop 200,000 rioting 

Look, it has been a long standing 
complaint that there is not much 
going on in Natchitoches, and 
believe it or not, NSU does suffer 
from it. Partying is as much a part 
of college as studying is. After a 
hard days studying, people want 
something to do. And music plays a 
rather important part in a young 
adults lifestyle. What I'm asking is 
that the Chief, or anybody else, 
should not put an end to our at- 
tempts to alleviate boredom just 
because he doesn't like it or 
because it uses the word rock and 
roll. Please don't force your lifestyle 
on us, especially your musical

Cinema Focus Coming Through 

Never let it be said that RR3 
wouldn't give credit where credit is 
due. And so, it gives me great 
pleasure to laud high praises upon 
Jack Welch and his Cinema Focus 
committee. Never have I seen such a 
diverse, tasteful, and enjoyable slate 
of films at NSU. 

I could hardly believe my good 
fortune when I picked up the SUGB 
calendar of events and discovered 
that I really wanted to see ten out of 
the eleven films scheduled for this 

As a little bit of background 
information, RR3 sees an average of 
six movies a month, sometimes 
more. However, I usually attend 
just two movies a semester at NSU, 
even though I've already paid for 

In case you haven't seen the 
calendar. Cinema Focus has 
scheduled "Where's Poppa?", 
"Meteor", "And Justice For All", 
"The Frisco Kid", "Dracula", 
"The Deer Hunter", "Kramer vs. 
Kramer", and "1941" for the 
remainder of the semester. "The 
Muppet Movie", "Electric Hor- 
seman", and "The China Syn- 
drome" have already been shown. 

If you don't know anything about 
these films, the names of the stars 
represented should tell you 
something. To mention just a few: 
John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, Dustin 
Hoffman, Meryl Streep, Robert 
deNiro, Sir Laurence Olivier, 
Harrison Ford, Gene Wilder, AI 
Pacino, Sean Connery, Alan Arkin, 
Jane Fonda, Jack Lemmon, Robert 
Redford, and Jim Henson's 
wonderful Muppets. 

The plots range from western 
comedy to gothic horror to en- 
vironmental propaganda to war 
epics, both tragic and funny. 

The most unfortunate thing about 
this season is that it may be just a 
fluke and, even if it isn't, we won't 
always have Mr. Welch to protect us 
from the seething mass of inex- 
pensive, artless B-movies which 
constantly vie for the attention of 
unsuspecting university film 

Admittedly, it is impossible to 
please all of the people, all of the 
time. However, a good start can be 
made by finding out exactly who the 
people are and what they want. 

Considering that the SUGB fee 
has just reached the all time high of 
$51.50 per semester, it is about time 
that the hit or miss scheduling 
method used by its committees 
comes to a screeching halt. 

Surely there is some earnest and 
responsible member of SUGB who 
realizes that it is sheer folly for 
twenty people to make the decisions 
for five thousand others. Even our 
local congressman have the decency 

to poll their constituents about the 
course of their individual lives. 

The SUGB must institute a poll to 
be given yearly covering all facets of 
their responsibilities, including 
concerts, films, speakers, fine arts, 
and social activities. The rest of us 
who get money from the Student 
Association fee, like the Current 
Sauce and the Theatre Department, 
would sincerely like some input 
from our financial backers. 

I'm not talking about polling fifty 
sorority sisters, but every single 
poor slob who has to fork over that 
$51.50. I know that sounds like a lot 
of work; but, as the old saying goes: 

"You knew the job was dangerous 
when you took it." 

It is about time that someone on 
this campus listened to this silent 
majority. The representatives-at- 
large need to stand up for the rights 
of the students who voted them into 
their positions. 

The SUGB can set a precedent. 
Who knows where it might end? 
Someday everyone on this campus 
might treat the students with the 
respect they deserve as human 
beings, rather than like the sucker in 
an elaborate con game. 

Doug Ireland's Notebook 

Elections Bring Few Suprises 

Thoughts while wondering what 
is so exciting back at home on the 
weekends to make students miss the 
home football games. 

...The election weekend is over, 
and about every race went as ex- 
pected except for the 10th Judicial 
District seat won outright by John 
Whitaker. Buddy Leach and Buddy 
Roemer made the runoff in the 4th 
District Congressional battle and 
the Natchitoches sales tax passed by 
nearly a four-to-one margin. Russell 
Long whipped Woody Jenkins to 
retain his U.S. Senate seat in the 
major statewide race. 

Whitaker pulled in 5,584 votes, 
out-distancing Richard Ware's 
2,709 and Sam Nelken's 1,986. His 
victory surprised many local 
political observers who had pegged 
the Gorum native for third place. 

Leach and Roemer surged into 
what could be a very hotly contested 
runoff for the 4th District 
Congressional seat, Leach getting 
29.1 percent of the vote and Roemer 
receiving 26.7 percent. Republican 
Jimmy Wilson, who lost a con- 
troversial 1978 runoff with Leach by 
266 votes, finished out of the picture 
in third place. 

One of the key factors in the 
runoff battle should be how the 
public reacts to endorsements made 
by the losing candidates. Roemer 
will probably get most, if not all, of 
the backing of the four defeated 

SGA Minutes 

candidates. That should provide the 
Leach force with added cannon 
fodder for the appeal to voter 
sympathy that has (amazingly) 
worked rather well so far. 

If Roemer gets the endorsements 
to go along with the backing he 
already had from the two major 
Shreveport papers, the Leach 
campaign will be able to claim a 
battle against * 'overwhelming* ' 
odds and cast their man as the 
beleaguered underdog. 

If enough voters go for that weak 
ploy hook, line and sinker as they 
did last Saturday, Leach will be 
back in Washington for good. . . 

...The margin of victory in the 
city sales tax election surprised a lot 
of folks, including Natchitoches 
mayor Joe Sampite. City officials 
had been publicly predicting a win 
and privately crossing their fingers 
but the 3,039 to 864 "yes, we 're for 
it" vote was a shock to even the 
most optimistic of them. 

City officials were happy to find a 
lot of voters felt a burden of 
responsibility to keep the city afloat 
financially. If the tax had failed, the 
city faced bankruptcy. As it is, there 
still is a lot of work to be done 
before Natchitoches can think about 
operating a balanced budget... 

The Student Government Association of NSU was called 
10 order by Chip Cole at 6:30 p.m. Becky Johnson led the 
pledge, and Jim Hoops gave the prayer. Joe Stamey moved

Constitution to include ADOS. 

Chip Cole requested attendance at a mandatory SGA 
meeting on September 15 at 6:00 p.m. He also introduced 
Larrv Dodson. President of ADOS, and Fran Wise. Vice 
President of WCC. 

Karen Murphy reported that SGA pictures would be taken 
on Wednesday, September 10 from 2:00-4:00 p.m. in the 
photo lab. 

Pat Wanelle reported on the SGA financial situation. He 
stated that we hadn't received our share of the money from 
student fees. The estimated allocation for the year 1980-8] 
will be approximately $26,000.00 Pat reminded everyone to 
notify the SGA President, Secretary, or Treasurer before 
making any SGA purchases. 

Mike Barton commented that the Spirit Committee would 
meet on Tuesday September 9 at 2:00 p.m. Tony Hernandez 
stated that Pep Ralleys would be held on Fridass at 7:00

Diana also requested any new ideas for State Fair and 

Archie Anderson. Vice President of SUGB. discussed 
plans for LOB pageant to be held November 14 and 15. 


Woody Woodruff. President of WCC. encouraged all 
senators to write Bubba Henry to find out what is being done 
about the building on Line Ave 

David Stamey moved to accept Bill No 7 It states

maximum student use or not be printed." After much 
discussions. Joe Stamey moved that Bill No. 8 be tabled. 
Heiene Morgan seconded. Motion carried. It was suggested 
that the SGA take over publication of the phone book as a 
money making project. 

Woody Woodruff inquired about the NSU Bookstore 
sending some workers to Shreveport camps during 
registration to sell NSU T-shirts and notebooks as a way of 
promoting school spirit. 

Mike Barton requested that NSU students be informed 
about keeping up with l.D.'s from vear to vear 

KNW'D announced that thev are off the air due to tran-

how about those Demons? 

NSU is off to a quick 2-0 start 
following a spine-tingling 38-31 win 
over Southland Conference power 
Texas-Arlington here Saturday. 


If you showed up at the National 
Guard Armory, Sunday afternoon, 
with blanket, buddys and beer (no 
bottles please) to enjoy the benefit 
concert for the Humane Society, 
you were no doubt disappointed. 
"Well, I would not feel so all 
alone," I know the hard workers at 
the Animal Shelter are not exactly 
overjoyed. Bobbye Lee, who runs 
the Shelter, spent time, thought, 
and effort manning the concession 
stand with volunteer workers, as if 
the lady isn't busy enough already. 

So why no show? Did Dawg- 
Rach fail? Not hardly, they never 
even lagged. The bands backed 
out? Nope, they were ready, 
willing, and able. The Humane 
Society didn't need the money for 
the Shelter? With what the Shelter 
gets from the city. ..I can't even find 
humor for the gravity of that. No, 
lovers of animals and/or rock-n-roll 
- we can endow the honors of the 
cancellation on our Chief of Police, 
James E. Reichel. 

I'm assuming you've been 
following the concert goings on 
since Mayor Sampite first suggested 
to Saniel Rach that the Animal 
Shelter needs money (when Dawg- 
Rach was seeking a good charity to 
benefit from the musical merry- 
making that they're capable of 
bringing to life.) You were 
probably shocked that Chief 
Reichal said, "Dawg-Rach 
Productions will not put on a rock 
and roll concert in this city." (Did I 
hear a puppy wine?) Mabe you were 
not so shocked that he left town 
after that statement for a five-day 
duration. (I wonder if he voted by 
absentee ballot.) 

Reasons? I haven't uncovered 
any, yet. If Chief Reichel doesn't 
like rock-n-roll. ..well, he wasn't 
spending the weekend in Nat- 
chitoches, anyway. 

Rock-n-roll is not my favorite 
type of music, but it just punches 
my heart that the concert was 

For the second week in a row, 
attendance left a lot to be desired— 
especially on the student side. I 
don't know if it's the new 7 p.m. 
kickoff time that serves as a good 
excuse or what, but there just aren't 
as many folks in the stands this year 
to watch a much-improved Demon 

cancelled. Since Dawg-Rach had 
already received the "go-ahead" 
and several persons suffered time 
and expense, the cancellation shows 
a narrow-minded unfairness on the 
part of the city officials involved. 

Sauce readers, I hope all of my 
information is correct so that you 
may know the truth of the situation. 
If you want to be sure though, why 
don't you call the Chief and ask 
him? Certanly, if your Sunday 
afternoon was wrecked, you have 
the right to know!

Dear Editor: 

I would like to take this op- 
portunity to do something very 
seldom done by NSU students. I 
would like to salute our Campus 
Security officers. 

Unlike the famous police in the 
N.Y.P.D. and other well known 
police departments, they lead a very 
exciting life. They do not have to 
put up with the mundane activities 
of other law enforcement 
organizations. They don't work 
with the small time stuff like armed 
robbery, murder, rape, and other 
felonies. They have to restrict their 
attention to the hard core crimes 
like parking violations, failure to 
yeild, running a redlight, and other 
well known offenses. 

Not enough students give the 
Campus Security officers credit 
where they deserve it. Well I am not 
that way. In fact if I could lose 
enough pounds to meet their strict 
weight requirements I would want 
to work with Campus Security, 
doing whatever it is they do with 
themselves late at night in their 
patrol cars. Campus Security I 
salute you.

Hitchhiking is An Art 

By James Ingrain 

Sauce Reporter 
Editors Note: This is the first of a 
three-part series on the art of hitch- 
hiking. James Ingram, a 
sophomore, is a recent addition to 
the Current Sauce and has miles of 
hitch-hiking under his belt. 

If you simply walk out on the 
highway, stick out your thumb, 
crack a smile, and expect to catch a 
ride— FORGET IT! you will be 
greatly disappointed! You will be 
standing there smiling, with your 
thumb stuck out, for the rest of the 

Bumming a ride is an art. It is 
filled with geography, art, drama, 
psychology, speech, and down-right 
common sense. Hitch-hiking can be 
fun if you do it properly. 

There are three major areas to be 
considered: first the planning stage, 
then the execution stage, and finally 
the delivery stage. This week we 
shall take a close look at the 
planning stage. 

Before a person starts on his 
journey, he should know where he is 
going! He should also know how to 
get there, this is where your 
geography courses come in handy. 
Go down to any Exxon or Shell 
service station and ask for maps. Be 
sure to pick up individual maps of 
the states through which you will be 
traveling, and also include regional 

On one occasion, while I was 
traveling from Atlanta, Georgia to 
New York City, on Interstate 95, 
Ifailed to pick up a map. This was 

Recently, a student told me that 
during the summer, while he was 
traveling from Dallas, on his way to 
Phoenix without a sign, it took him 
two days to get to El Paso, ap- 
proximately six hundred and seven 
miles from Dallas, and two and a 
half days to get out of Texas. He 
had solicited seventeen rides. Signs 
stop a person from getting rides that 
are only going as far as the second 
or third exit down the highway. 

Remember to write your 
destination on a piece of cardboard 
in extra large, bold, black letters. If 
you are going to a small city off of 
the main route, break the signs up. 
For example, suppose you are 
coming from Chicago on your way 
to Natchitoches. It is very unlikely 
that anyone in that area will kk 
k n o w w 

w exxexactly where you are going. 
Onone side you might write Dallas, 
on the other side Shreveport, and on 
a separate sign you would write 
Natchitoches. Or, if you wanted to 
do a little sightseeing, you could 
possibly have your signs saying: 
indianapolis, St. Louis, Okla. City, 
Dallas, Shreveport, Natchitoches. 

The final step in the preparation 
stage is packing your bags. Always 
carry some sort of luggage with you 
whether it is a knap-sack, a 
backpack, or a duffle bag. Let the 
driver know that you are going 
somewhere. This is called good 
common sense. Do not overload - 
you just might end up walking the 
whole way. Carry what you need for 
the trip and what you will need 
when you get there. BE

Gary is shown doing what he likes to do best and that is to 
teach flying. He is also a member of the NSU Jazz band and a 
full-time student

doesn't seem to get his feathers 
ruffled very often. 

These traits came in handy when 
Gary was traveling all over creation

A lot of times me and this other

own and play back-up for differenct 
groups. We played for the Four

Palm Springs California. I guess it 
was a good experience, you can 
really learn a lot about yourself and 
other people. 

After traveling aroundd Gary 
decided to go home and try his hand 
at something else. "I realized I 
didn't have a very good future in 
music," he explined. 

He got a job for Contiential 
Airlines loading andd unloading

"I had a musician friend at NSU

leave of absence and came to

because highway 95 goes straight 
from one city to the other. 
However, around Washington 
D.C., I — 95 not only turns into 
Capital Beltway, which is I — 495 
and goes around Washington D.C. 
and turns back into I — 95 on the 
other side of Washington, but also 
turns into the Shirley Memorial 
Highway, which is I — 395 going 
through D.C, which then turns into 
the Baltimore- Washington Park- 
way, which is I — 295. Now if all of 
this wasn,t confusing and 
frustrating, by the time I had gotten 
back on the correct highway, I was 
feeling as if I were on a merry-go- 
round. Not only had I gone around 
Washington D.C. three times, 
through Maryland and Virginia 
three times, but also through the 
south side of Washington and out of 
the north side once, it had taken me 
five hours to get back on the right 
road. In that time I could have been 
in New York. Every driver that I got 
a ride from told me that I was going 
in the wrong direction, and each one 
of them had a helpful hint to give to 
me and point me in the right 
direction. Know where you are going 
and how to get there, never trust 
the signs and BEWARE OF

the phase in which you must con- 
jour up all of your advertising and

Dennis Oneal is the new man on campus and ideas for the department that will hopefully go 
the new man in the Mass Communication into effect in the spring,

Mass Communications Dept. 
Undergoes Major Changes 

NSU's media Mass Com- 
munications department is aout to 
get a giant face lift and things are 
really starting to happen to media 

This all due to the efforts of a 
man with a deep authoritive voice 
and a very believing personality. 

The man is Dennis Oneal and his 
job is to get the ball rolling for a 
better and more efficient media 
department at NSU. 

Oneal, who is a native of Illinois, 
has a Bachelor of Science degree 
from Southern Illinois, amasters of 
Arts degree from the University of 
Arkansas and his Ph. D in Com- 
munications from the University of 
Southern Mississippi. 

He was an assistant professor at 
the University of Arkansas for eight 
years and a mamber of the 
professional Journalism fraternity, 
Sigma Delta Chi. He is also a 
member of the Arkansas broad- 
casters association, Public radio in 
Mid-america and kappa Tau Alpha 

he served as president of 
treasurer, and board of directors for 
the Sigma Delta Chi in Ozarks 
professional chapter. 

"We are trying to build a 
department that the students will be 
proud to be a part of," said Oneal. 
"This department has a lot of 
potential and we are going to make 
the best of it." he added. 

"Before now the media depart- 
ment has really been several dif- 

ferent departments and it has been 
like stair-stepping with each 
department in different departments 
segments of the university. This 
way the media is one department 
and we are able to organize our 
classes better," commented Oneal. 

To be able to organize the classes 
all phases of the Hournalism 
program will be revises and up- 
dated. Some of the classes will be 
dropped and some new classes will 
be added. 

"We are going to drop the areas 
that we don't do very well in and 
keep what we do best. We are also 
going to try and add some variety to 
our courses, be a little creative and 
experiement with some new ideas," 
explained Oneal. 

One of the major changes will 
occur in the Broadcasting depart- 
ment. "That is one of my major 
fields and I am very interested in 
making it one of the best depart- 
ments, of its kind, in the state we 
have the facilities and I plan on 
taking advantage of it." he said. 

Another major change is the 
elimination of the advertising 
department at NSU . The courses 
will still be taught but the students 

who major in advertising will 
change to one of the other phases of 
Journalism. "We are not doing this 
to upset anybody its just one of our 
weaker area and we want quality in 
the Mass Communication depart- 
ment." he added. 

"We also need some more space 
and one of the first things I would 
like to see done is to have a reading 
room for all communications 
majors. I would really be nice to 
have a place to go and be able to 
read, study, talk to some of the 
other poeple in the curriculum or do 
a little research in various 
newspapers, that will be in the 
room," he explained. 

Some of the new courses we 
would like to see added are classes 
like a Introduction to Mass 
Communication; a Survey o 
American Cinemas; a Seminar in 
Issues of Mass Communications; 
just to mention a few, but, our 
main goal right now is to get the 
Mass Communications program 
started and make it stronger so that 
the people in the department will be 
happy with who they are," he

Northwestern Comes From 
Behind To Defeat UTA 

Behind the aerial acrobatics of a 
record setting performance by 
Bobby Hebert, Northwestern came 
from behind to whip a very strong 
University of Texas-Arlington 
football team 38-31. Hebert, a 6-4 
sophomore from Cut-off, La., 
broke the NSU single game passing 
mark by throwing for 364 yards and 
tied another by throwing 4 
touchdown passes. Although 
Hebert had a tremendous night he 
could not have done it without guys 
like Randy Liles, James Bennett, 
Walter Mays, and Joe Delaney 
making catches that at times looked 

However, at the onset of the 
game, it looked as though UTA 
would run slap over the Demons. 
UTA scored on its first two 
possessions. The first score came 
after an interception by Mel 
Maxfield. UTA went 78 yards in 11 
plays and scored on an 11 yard run 
by Phillip Jessie. After a Demon 
punt, UTA's Brian Happel kicked a 
44 yard field goal for a 10-0 UTA 
lead. No sooner had UTA scored 
than the Demons took over and in 
three plays, a Joe Delaney run for 
two yards and two Hebert to Liles 
passes for 14 and 64 yards, and 
Northwestern was back in the 
ballgame. Approximately three 

minutes and nineteen seconds later 
NSU tied the score on a 41 yard field 
goal by Leo Clement. NSU 
threatened again when Ernest Smith 
blocked the first of two punts by 
UTA. However Clement missed a 33 
yard field goal. UTA then took over 
and marched 80 yards in 5 plays and 
scored on a 4 yard run . 

NSU went 76 yards in 8 plays 
and tied the score at 17 all . 

UTA attempted to act smart ana 
run out the clock by trying three 
straight running plays. This plan 
backfired and UTA went back to 
unt. For the second straight time 
Smith broke through and got a hand 
on the punt and partially blocked it. 
With twenty seconds remaining on 
the clock Hebert hit Bennett with a 
51 yard pass on the first play of the 

In the second half NSU drew first 
blood when Darrel Toussaint 
blocked a Happel field goal at- 
Larry Robinson pounced on 
ball and NSU had an extra 
fifteen yards added to that after an 
unsportsmanlike conduct call gave 
them the ball on the 34. NSU then 
moved 66 yards in 4 plays to make it 
30-17. In that drive Hebert ran the 
pigskin in from the 9 yard line to 
score. UTA came back to score 


Don Sepulvado 

Bobby Hebert (12) hurdles several legs while Demon 
Johnny Skinner (54) looks for more Mavericks to 
block in this touchdown run 

twice in rapid succession on a Garv 
Lewis touchdown reception and a 
Stacey Rayfield 6 yard run. But 
Northwestern came roaring back 
when Hebert led the Demons 80 
yards in 8 plays and passed to Liles 
for two scores. One of them was a 
15 yard touchdown pas and the 
other was a two yard two point 
conversion. UTA almost pulled it 
out but clutch tackles by Mike 
Camden, Sam Jenkins, and 
Freeman Thomas, and a sensational 
game saving tackle by Spencer 
Mallet that dropped for a five yard 
loss on fourth down. 

Individually for the Demons, in 
addition to his 364 yards passing 
and 4 touchdown passes, Hebert ran 
for 101 yards and another touch- 
down. Delaney added 84 yards and 
Carlton Finister tallied 43. Liles was 
the leading receiver with 5 catches 
for 110 yards Bennett had 2 

for 80, Finister 3 for 23, Mays 2 for 
45, Rubin 1 for 12, and Victor Oatis 
caught one pass for 44 yards. 

Defensively, Mike Camden 
turned in an outstanding defensive 
game by making 10 tackles, eight of 
them solo stops. Bruce McCreary 
and Larry Robinson registered eight 
stops apiece and David Bigley and 
Tommy Rushing chalked up six 
tackles each. 

Next week the Demons journey to 
Nacogdoches to play the Stephen F. 
Austin Lumberjacks. NSU's next 
home game is against New York 
Tech on October 1 1th.

When all the smoke had cleared 
following the Northwestern State 
38-31 win over Texas-Arlington here 
Saturday night, no less than seven 
school records had been set by the 

Now 2-0 on the year the Demons 
came from behind three times to 
edge the visiting Mavericks. The last 
score came with 3:54 left to play and 
capped an 80-yard drive that ended 
with a 15-yard scoring pass from 
quarterback Bobby Hebert to 
receiver Walter Mays. 

Hebert, a sophomore from Cut 
Off, had one of the best nights ever 
for a Demon player. The 6-4, 205- 
pounder hit 18 of 30 passes for 364 
yards and four touchdowns and also 
ran for 101 yards and another score. 

The Demons amassed 603 in total 
offense breaking the old school 
record of 588 yards. Hebert's total 
offense of 465 yards was a record, 
his 18 completions tied a record, his 
364 yards passing was a new mark, 
his four touchdown passes tied a 
record and he set a new best by 
being responsible for 30 points in 
the contest (four TDs passing, one 
TD rushing). 

Northwestern exploded for 24 
points in the second period for the 
second straight week and again 
showed it can score from any place 
on the field. The long plays this 
week included a 64-yard scoring 
pass to Randy Liles, a 51 -yard 
scoring pass to James Bennett and a 
44-yard pass completion to Victor 
Oatis. Hebert also covered 40-yards 
on an option play on his way to 101 
yards rushing in the game. 

Liles, a senior from Oil City, had 
five catches in the game for 1 10 
yards, the 10th highest amount of 
yards receiving for a Demon in one 
game. James Bennett also had a 
great night catching the ball, 
hauling in two passes for 80 yards 
and two scores. Bennett has grabbed 
three passes in two games and they 
have all been for touchdowns. 

Unfortunately for Bennett and 
the Demons, it will be awhile before 


Bennett catches another pass. He 
suffered a broken collarbone late in 
the game and will be out of action 
for three-to-five weeks. The only 
other major injury suffered by the 
Demons was defensive back Steve 
Graf who suffered a separated 
shoulder and will also miss three-to- 
five weeks. 

Early in the game Saturday it 
looked like Texas-Arlington was on 
its way to an easy victory, The 
Mavericks got an early touchdown 
and field goal and led 10-0 after one 
period. But that's when the 
"Demon Dynamite" offense ex- 
ploded for 24 points before in- 
termission and led 24-17 at halftime. 

When the Demons added a third 
period touchdown it looked like the 
game was on ice with a 30-17 lead. 
But the Mavericks came right back 
with two quick scores and took the 
lead 31-30 with 7:28 left. Then the 
Demons began their final game 
winning drive. 

Although the Demon defense 
gave up a lot of yards, they made 
some big plays when they had to, 
like blocking two punts and one" 
field goal attempt. But the biggest 
defensive play came in the final 
minute when the Mavericks had 
their chance for victory. 

On a fourth and one from the 
Demon two-yard line Texas- 
Arlington tried sweeping the right 
side for a game winning score. But 
Spencer Mallet came up to tackle 
the ball carrier for a five-yard loss 
and the Demons had their second 
win in as many games. 

The Northwestern kicking game 
was somewhat inconsistent, but 
sophomore Leo Clement continued 
to show his powerful leg. Clement 
missed three field goal attempts and 
an extra point, but he connected on 
a 44-yard field goal and averaged 
42-yards on his punts And still after 
two games the Northwestern op- 
ponents have not been able to return 
a kickoff . 

The Demons will now try to keep 
their winning streak alive as they hit

Northwestern will play at Stephen

Demons To Battle 
Stephen F. Austin 

One of Northwestern 's oldest 
football rivals will be the host team 
this Saturday when the Demons 
travel to Nacogdoches to play the 
Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks 
Saturday night. 

The battle over who gets to keep 
Chief Caddo seems to draw most of 
the attention every year and this 
year is no exception. The seven foot 
Indian has been won by Nor- 
thwestern foot so long that the 
Chief has already applied for a 
student I. D. at NSU. 

NSU's domination of the series 
could possibly be in jeopardy this 
year since the 'jacks are supposed to 
be preparing for their best year yet. 

SFA was 8-3 last year and ranked 
16th in the NAIA final rankings last 
year. One of their losses was to 
Northwestern by the score of 27-21 . 

Ten starters are back from that 
team that is predicted to finish in the 
top twenty in the NAIA national 
rankings again this year. Among 
them is Don Hood, an NAIA All- 
American last year. 

This will be NSU's third game 
while SFA will be playing their first. 
Only two Northwestern starters will 
not play, James Bennett and Steve 
Graf who both suffered broken 
collar bones in last weeks game 
against UTA.

Right o: f the bat, let's get the 
record straight. If you are anti- 
football put this down. I believe in 
A. L. Williams. Always have. For 
those of you that don't here are 
some thoughts for you to consider. 

If you think that part of NSU's 
declining enrollment is his fault then 
you are mistaken. Neither, are any of 
the other problems that he 
inherited. He was lured to NSU 
because of his reputation, and at a 
salary that was less than half of 
what some other college coaches 
were making. 

NSU still is competing for money 
scholarships, students, athletes, and 
other things against schools like 
LSUS.La. Tech., Centenary, and 
Northeast on 1-20, McNeese on 1- 
10, the millionaires in Lafayette, 
and other related problems. These 
problems were here before Williams 
arrived and there is nothing he can 
do about them. 

Upon arriving at NSU, then- 
president Dr. Arnold Kilpatrick told 
him that it would be at least five 
years before Northwestern would 
have a winning football team. In his 
five years here, Williams has led the 
Demons to two winning seasons. 
Not bad for a team that was not 
supposed to have any winning 
seasons. Williams athletic budget 
and his athletic facilities were the 
lowest and Ihe worst in the state. He 
has just now been able to put 

together his own staff, and has 
lately been able to grab top notch 
recruits out from under the noses of 
some other big time state schools. 
What is really remarkable is that he 
can do this with just 70 scholarships 
while Tech., McNeese, UTA, and 
other Division 1-A schools are 
allowed 95. 

He's respected by his players and 
coaches, and he will prove his 
worth. Not too many proven head 
coaches were knocking down the 
door to take this job when he first 
arrived here, especially at the lunch 
money they were paying him. We 
owe him something for what he's 
taken the past five years, and soon 
there will be a few more apologizing 
for their criticisms. He was 
promised a lot of things that weren't 
delivered, but he hung in there and 
took the lumps when others would 
have walked off and left it. His 
family has suffered the insults with 
him, and it was more than lesser 
men could handle. 

I hope that people won't say nice 
things about him just as long as he's 
winning and the minute Nor- 
thwestern drops a game those same 
people stab him in the back without 
a very justifiable reason. But after 
impressive wins over Abilene 
Christian and Texas-Arlington, the 
future looks bright, and nobody 
deserves it more. He's a class guy.

Action in the Miller Lite Intramural Tug of War 
was a little wet. 

Demon Playground 

The fall intramural season got 
underway last Tuesday with the 
Miller Lite Tu^-Of-War. 

The Brotherhood was the only 
team that left Tuesday's com- 
petition without taking a bath, as 
they went through the afternoon 
undefeated. The Ribets, who were 
defeated in the quarterfinals, fought 
back to take the womens division 
championship with two victory's 
over UnKappa Fifth. 

In the mens division Kappa Sigma 
fought their way throught the losers 
bracket to take second place. The 
Varnado squad emerged dripping 
wet taking third place. 

Un Kappa Fifth was close to 
taking the Miller keg home that 
went along with first place when 
they faced the once defeated Ribits 
in the finals. The Ribits then 
proceeded to take two hard fought 
victories for the championship. Tri 
Sigma swam back from early defeat 
to take third place. 

The event was sponsored by the 
Miller Brewing Company which

This week, we'll look at the 
1930's, a decade which saw the end 
of H. Lee Prather's career and the 
beginning of the lengthy career of 
Harry "Rags" Turpin. 

Prather's coaching career at 
Normal ended in 1933 after four 
successful years in the decade. The 
Demons finished 7-2 in 1930, 5-4 in 
1931, 7-1 in 1932, and 6-3 in 1933 
under Prather's guidance. Prather's 
20 year record at Normal was 74-48- 
11 for a winning percentage of .607. 
I mistakenly said last week that Dr. 
C.G. Pool had the top winning 
percentage of all NSU coaches. As 
we'll see in the next few weeks, 
that's incorrect. 

Prather's 1932 squad was one of 
Normal's best, losing only once in 
eight games. The Demon gridders 
only gave up 53 points that year, 
shutting out five opponents. The 
only loss of the season, was a 
devastating 41-7 loss to a powerful 
Centenary squad. That's right- 
Centenary used to play football, 
and they were quite good at it. As a 
matter of fact in the 30's Normal 
only managed to beat the Gents 
once and tie them once in nine 
meetings. In five of the meetings 
the Demons were shutout. 

In 1934, Harry "Rags" Turpin 
took over as the Demons' head 
mentor. Turpin's first season was a 
mediocre 4-3-1, before the 
disastrous 1935 season. That year 
the Demons lost eight of 10 con- 
tests, only beating Lon Morris and 
Southwestern by identical 6-0 

The next three years were 
rebuilding years for Turpin as the 
Demons had three break-even 
seasons: 5-4-1 in 1936, 4-4-1 in 
1937, and 5-5-0 in 1938. 

The early years under Turpin 
were somewhat sluggish on offense 
as they never managed to put more 
than 100 points on the board in any 
one season. The lowest point 
production of the decade came in 
1937 as the Demons managed to 
score only 29 points all year, but 
somehow managing to win four 
ballgames. As a matter of fact, the 
four games the Demons won were 
the only four games they scored in 
during that season. 

What helped Turpin's early teams 
to win a few ballgames was a 
tenacious defense. In Turpin's first 
five seasons, the Demon defense 
handed out 19 shutouts and allowed 
over 100 points in two of the five 

And then, to close out the decade 

was the miricle season of 1939. 
Turpin led his gridders to the best 
record ever compiled in Demon 
football history- 1 1-0. The perfect 
mark was the first of only two 
perfect seasons for the Demons, the 
other coming in 1966 which we'll 
cover at a later date. 

But in 1939, while the rest of the 
world was preparing for war, the 
best news coming out of Nat- 
chitoches was news of the Demons' 
repeated successes on the gridiron. 
Fans should have known it would be 
a special season when the Demons 
beat Centenary for the first time in a 
decade, 15-0. 

After that, wins came quickly 
over East Texas State, 
Southeastern, and Louisiana 
College. The Demons then ranked 
arch-rival Louisiana Tech 26-0 and 
went on to win their last six games 
against Delta State, Mississippi 
Southern, Southwestern, Ouachita, 
Murra State, and Stephen F. 

Although the Demons managed 
to amass 195 points on the year, the 
real story of the 1939 season was the 
fierce Turpin-coached defense. The 
Demon defenders allowed just 18 
points over the entire season, six 
each to Southeastern, Delta State, 
and Stephen F. Austin. The eight 
shutouts in the 1939 season brought 
Turpin's six-year total to 27, a most 
notable accomplishment. 

For the decade the Demons 
finished 56-34-3, shutting out 37 of 
their 93 opponents, while failing to 
score only 20 times. The Demons 
had a winning percentage of .618 
for the ten year period. 

After the special team of Current 
Sauce accountants had finished 
tabulating the final predictions 
results it was learned that Sauce 
Sports editor Joe Cunningham and 
Sauce Business Manager David 
Stamey has taken an overwhelming 
lead in probably the greatest 
example of prognostications in the 
Current Sauce history. Although the 
score of the Houston-Cleveland 
game was not available at press 
time, Cunningham and Stamey were 
both at 8-1 and the rest of the panel, 

Gallien, Dr. Baumgardner, and Mr. 
Pierce, were all at 7-2 which was 
fairly respectable. 

The bonehead pick of the week 
this week has several winners. Mike 
Gallien received first place 
following his prediction that UTA 
would beat NSU. What brains 
Mike! Second place goes to 
Stamey, Gallien (again), Dr. 
Baumgardner and Mr. Pierce who 
all predicted that Dallas would beat 
Denver. Ingnorance is Bliss! 

Fashion Begins 


Demons Eligible For NCAA 

Coach Wayne Yates and his 1980- 
81 Northwestern Demon Basketball 
team will have more to shoot for 
this season than just improving on 
the 5'20 season record of a year ago. 

Trans American Athletic Con- 
ference Commissioner Bob Vanatta 
announced last Tuesday that the 
National Colleggiate Athletic 
Association (NCAA) has granted an 
automatic bid to the 1980*81 NCAA 
Division 1 National Basketball 
tournament. The TA AC 
representative will be decided at the 
conference basketball tournament 
to be held March 5 7 in Shreveport. 

'This is the biggest step forward in 
the history of the young con- 
ference,' said Vanatta from his 
Shreveport office last Tuesday. The 
Trans America is in its third year 
while Northwestern is competing in 
basketball for the first- time this 

'This is a great step forward for 
the conference ,' said NSU's first 
year coach. 'Commissioner Vanatta 
deserves tremendous credit for his 
work. It means a great deal to me as 
a coach, and to the players, to know 
that we have the possibility to play 
in the NCAA tournament. We 

certainly will not have any trouble 
having the players motivated.' 

Northwestern Athletic Director 
A.L. Williams was also very pleased 
with the NCAA decision. 'I'm 
extremely thrilled. The work of Bob 
Vanatta made this possible and I 
commend him strongly. This bid is 
a result of his hard work and ef- 
forts. This is a real shot in the arm 
for the conference . It gives every 
school an added incentive to excel.' 

Northwestern will open its 
season, the first under Yates and his 
staff, on December 1 when it hosts 
Louisiana Tech.

In Cutting University's Energy Costs 

By David LaVere 
Sauce Editor 

"Utilities are the big thing at 
Northwestern, and any way we can. 
. save on costs, we will work toward 
it, We've got • to " said NSU 
president, Dr. Rene Bienvenu, 
concerning his strategy to cut costs 
at the university. 

According to Bienvenu, NSU's 
first approach in attempting to solve 
the money crunch will be a 
crackdown on utility costs. At a 
faculty meeting, Bienvenu had 
disclosed that the university's 
telephone bill would be the first area 
attacked for cost-cutting. 

Bienvenu has stated that NSU's 
telephone budget was over 
$230,000. "We're in the process of 
surveying the telephone system on 
campus. I've contacted all the 
budget unit heads to cooperate in a 
reduction of the telephone system," 
said Bienvenu. "By taking out a few 
lines and phones, the savings begin 
to add up." Bienvenu stated that he 
would lose one line on his phone 
system. Other savings in the 
telephone systems would come by a 
monitoring of the ink-lines, " 
order to make certain that all long 
distance calls are university' 
business," Bienvenu stated. 

"We are also looking at building 
usage," explained Bienvenu con- 
cerning further costs savings. "Also 
the possibility of combining some 
offices and some classrooms so that 
we might not have to heat and cool 
so many buildings." 

Lighting will be a major area in 
which savings will be attempted. 
"People just don't realize how 
much is saved by turning off a light. 

University Police 
To Patrol Zones 

If you are out wondering late at 
night on campus, you might find 
yourself entering the dark zone. 
What goes on in the Dark Zone? No 
one knows for sure, however, you 
could be the next victim of an at- 

Chief Lee of University Police 
urged students to, "Stay on lighted 
paths." and stated that the 
University Police is walking the 
campus at night, and as long as they 
have the manpower to do so will 
continue with this type of patroling. 

Areas on campus that need lights 
are Natchitoches and Louisiana 
Dormitories, and the path from 
Louisiana Dorm to Watson Library. 

Mr. Lindsey stated to student," 
Anytime you think an area is a 
trouble spot, just hollar, we'll try 
and do something about it." 

Lindsey mentioned that the area 
by the Business Building used to be 
dark, and he said when they were 
walking through, "I was afraid to 
walk through that area." 

President Rene Bienvenu said that 
Mr. Lindsey is trying to put lights 
up in most of the dark spots on 
campus. He also stated, "You can't 
get the campus looking like day, but 
you can try hard." 

After Saturday's Sept. 13, 
Football game with UTA a co-ed 
was alle raped while going 

back to her dorm. The rape was 
reported to University Police, but 
she would not give her name or her 
room number. The only iden- 
tification she would give on her 
alleged assailant was that he was a 
black male. 

The University Police report 
taken on the account said that the 
officer advised the girl to give her 
name and address, but she refused 
to do so. Further investigation into 
the matter by University Police 
showed no reports from the Parish 

Lee commented, "There isn't 
much you can do in a case like this, 
Just try and stress, especially to 
girls, to stay on lighted paths, and 
not to walk around alone at night. 

Lindsey said his staff is trying to 
eliminate problems before they 
happen. That is where student 
cooperation is helpful, because the 
power plant, which controls the 
lights on campus, only has one man 
working at night, and he can't go 
out looking for dark areas. 

(Continued on page 3) 

We're going to work toward a 
tighter control on this stuff," said 
the president. Bienvenu has 
requested that students assist the 
university in the cutting of lighting 
costs. "Everybody can work on 
this. If the student can help us out, 
it will be a great savings. It's \m-. 
portant because that money saved 
can be put back into education," 
the president said. 

According to Bienvenu, NSU has 
increased it's utility budget by 20 
percent for a total utility budget of 
$1.84 million for 1980. But even 

more money may have to go into the 
utility fund said the president. "It's 
the summer. Because of it being so 
hot and dry... I'm not sure that 
figure is going to carry." 

Besides utilities, others, savings 
are. being eyed! "We're looking at 
better utility of staff,, arid studying 
all our individual needs." 

Bienvenu stated that he did not 
see any personnel lay-off taking 
Place in the near future, but did 
not rule out the possibility if the 
financial situation worsened-. "'We'll 
have to do whatever we have to do 

to remedy the situation," said 
the president. 

"I hope that at least during the 
time I'm here and even after I'm 
gone, that as enrollment drops, we 
can depend on' regular attiriton," 
said Bienvenu concerning a lay-off 
possibility. "But if the situation, 
becomes drastic of course, we will 
have to decrease the number of 
employees. But that will be the last 
thing done." 

According to the president, NSU 
has certain inherent difficulties that 
is must face every year. LSU-

Campaign Wallpaper 

Class Senator elections were held yesterday, 
climaxing a two-week period of hard cam- 
paigning for some candidates. Election 
posters have covered most of the campus and 

will probably remain up for a good while after 
the elections. Many candidates spent a great 
deal of money on their campaigns this year. 

Senator Elections Held Yesterday 

Twenty-eight candidates filed to 
run in yesterday's Student 
Government Association's Class 
Senator election. 

Candidates for the Senior class 
were: Bobby Johnson, Melinda 
Palmore, and Melaney Mydland. 

Candidates for the Junior class 
were: Pam Deen, Kevin Bar- 
tholomew, Wanda Anthony, David 
Martin, and Larry Hall. 

Candidates for the Sophomore 
class were: Darlene Hay, Don 
Bowden, Teresa Sullivan, Dianna 
Kemp, Alison Breazeale, Susanne 
Crawford, David Collier, Russell 

Williams, Helene Morgan, Melody 
Sprawl, and Sherri Reeves. 

Candidates for the Freshman 
class were: Stacy Maddox, Harlon 
Harvey, Beth Richard, Clare 
Campbell, Teresa Peterson, Lisa 
Larrimer, Allison Arthur, Steve 
Leeder and Bill Baily. 

There can be no incumbents in the 
election, but some of the present 
class senators are trying to move up. 

Kevin Bartholomew is attempting 
to move from Sophomore senator to 
Junior senator. Larry Hall, who is a 
Senator-at-Large, is now running 
for a class senatorship. Helene 

Morgan and Don Bowden, who 
were appointed to their positions 
during the school year, are running 
for re-election. 

Mark Manuel, Commissioner of 
Elections, expected a large turn-out 
in yesterday's election. "I'm 
predicting a sixty to seventy turn- 
out and hopefully we'll beat that," 
said Manuel. 

Polls closed at 7 p.m. last night, 
and due to deadlines, the Current

Last Saturday, Seventh Anniversary 
Of Jim Croce's Death In Crash 

Last Saturday, Sept. 20, was the 
seventh ann iversary of singer, Jim 
Croce's death. He was killed in a 
plane crash at the Natchitoches 
airport after performing a concert at 
NSU. Immediately after his death, 
Croce's record sales skyrocketed 
and he became a "Superstar", 
posthumously, unfortunately. Here 
is the Sept. 23 article on his death 
that appeared the following Sunday 
in the Natchitoches Times. 

Jim Croce, a recording star whose 
latest hit is "Leroy Brown", was 
killed along with five other persons 
in a plane crash Thursday night near 
the Natchitoches Municipal Air- 
port. ' 

The 30-year-old singer-musician 
had just completed a show before 
some 2,000 students in Prather 
Coliseum on the campus of Nor- 
thwestern State University. 

Other victims in the crash of the 
Beechcraft D-18 twin-engined plane 
were identified by Natchitoches 
Parish Coroner Dr. Charles Cook 
and Sheriff Sam James as: Maurice 
T.Muehleisen, 24, of Trenton, N.J. ; 
George Stevens, 36, of 
Englevvood.Colo; Dennis Rast (also 

known as MorganTell), 30, of 
Chicago; Kenneth Dominick 
Cortese, 28, of Chicago, and Robert 
Newton Elliott, 57, of Dallas, Tex. 

According to information 
gathered by law enforcement of- 
ficials, Muehleisen was the stage 
musical sidekick of Croce; Stevens 
was the comedian of the show; Rast 
was Croce's personal manager; 
Cortese was an agent for Variety 
Theatre which booked the show; 
and Elliott was the pilot of the plane 
chartered from Robert's Airways of 

The crash occured about 10:45 
p.m. as the plane left the south 
runway and crashed about 200 yards 
from the end of the runway. 

Some local pilots at the scene said 
it appeared the plane never gained 
much altitude and it clipped the 
edge of a tree near the new Highway 
1 Bypass. The plane then flipped 
over on its back and burst open 
upon impact with the ground near 
the edge of the new road. 

Dr. Cook said that all persons 
aboard the plane were killed in- 

Croce had appeared in Shawnee, 
_Okla., Tuesday night, in Columbus, 

Miss., Wednesday night, and was to 
have appeared in Sherman, Tex., 
Friday night. 

The singer had been billed as 
"one of the nation's most popular 
and respected singers and 
songwriters." He had been 
described as a "rough-hewn, 
mustachioed, cigar-smoking, 
weather-beaten vision of a man and 
his songs and style reflected 
wisdom far beyond his years." 

His highly lauded premiere 
album, "You Don't Mess Around 
With Jim," has been gradually 
climbing on the musical charts. 

Croce had flown into Nat- 
chitoches Thursday afternoon and 
had planned to spend the night and 
fly back to Dallas Friday. However, 
there was a last minute change of 
plans and the group decided to leave 
immediately after the show. 

The Federal Aviation Agency 
regional offices were notified by 
Chief of Police Harry Hyams ad 
representatives were dispatched to 
the scene Friday to inspect the crash 
site which has portions of the plane 
scattered over an area of some 120 

Shreveport and LSU-Ale\andria 
lure many students away, plus the 
rising cost of gas, inflation, and just 
the cost-of-living are difficulties 
that NSU must counter. "1 believe 
that as times change, the type of 
environment we have here will 
attract most people," said Bien- 

"There is no place to stop in 
looking at costs, but from an im- 
mediate standpoint of opinion, there 
is more to be saved in utilities 
and telephones right now than 
anywhere else," said Bienvenu. 

Dr. Bienvenu also took the time 
to comment upon the recent Student 
Government Association bill which 
called for a clean-up of Chaplain's 
Lake. "The reason for the bill was 
an attempt to bring more pressure 
on the city to cope with Chaplain's 
Lake. It is a city problem," said the 

The Chaplain's Lake problem is 
obvious to anyone who goes to the 
north-east part of the lake. 
Pollution has built up and formed a 
large island in the lake. "I feel the 
city will be moving on it as quickly 
as they can. I know how Joe 
(Natchitoches Mayor Joe Sampite) 
feels about it, and frankly, I'm 
madder than hell, but they have 
passed the tax (city sales tax)," 
explained Bienvenu. 

Concerning a recent alleged rape 
on campus, Bienvenu stated that he 
has directed the University Police to 
increases surveillance in certain 
areas of the campus. He has also 
proposed additional lighting for 
some dark spots on campus. 

Eddie Money 
Here In Oct. 

The Concert Committee of the 
Student Union Governing Board 
voted to book Eddie Money for an 
Oct. 21 concert in a meeting 
Thursday, Sept. 18. The decision 
came after a vote by committee 
members which also resulted in a 
vote to book Pure Prarie League if 
the first choice turned out to be 

The committee discussed several 
groups for the October concert, 
such as Larry Graham, Pablo 
Cruise, Mickey Gilley and the 
Urban Cowboys, Air Supply, Pure 
Prarie League, Ohio Players, 
Michael Murphy, Rare Earth, and 
Eddie Money, who received the 
majority of the vote. 

Problems concerning the site for 
the concert were a major factor in 
arranging for. a performance. It was 
mentioned that the Coliseum might 
not be available until December 
because of renovations to the 
dressing rooms and concourse 
areas. Equipment piled in the 
corridors was a concern, and 
committee members expressed 
dissatisfaction with the fact that the 
renovation areas are in effect owned 
by the contractors until the 
renovations are completed, which 
would create a definite problem. 

Costs for putting on a concert are 
a continuing concern for the 
committe. Bill Corry, committe 
chairman, expressed a desire to keep 
costs as low as possible, and a 
maximum figure of $10,000 was 
metioned. Last year's K.C. and the 
Sunshine Band Concert costs 
$20,000, and $12,500 of that was 
made back. However, Corry says, 
'We're not here to make money, but 
to provide entertainment for the 
students and keep costs down. We 
lose money on 95% of the concerts 
we give, but we are still able to 
provide free admission to NSU 

The Eddie Money concert, when 
definitely booked, will cost only 
$9100, and considering Money's 
popularity, this is a good figure. All 
comittee members are conscious of 
the fact that the concert budget is 
small, but the committee will 
continue to strive to bring the best 
entertainment available. 

Plans for the Christmas Lights 
concert were also discussed, and 
groups considered for the concert 
included Hall and Oates, Little 
River Band, and the SOS Band. The 
committee is still open for 
suggestions for the Christmas

Participation Of Students Down 

the Den 

Imp r 


By Sandi Therrell 
Sauce Reporter 

at '^JdSj£k x- 

One of the biggest problems on 

campus in not Iberville, Chaplin's 

l c Lake, or the cricket population, but 

- the lack of student participation in 
; . such activities as pep rallies, 
,,. football games, and lectures. This 
.' small sample of available activities 
,,, at NSU is designed for the benefit, 
.. appreciation, and/or entertainment 
e of the students. This lack of en- 
.£ thusiasm or spirit can be termed 
K 'student apathy.' 

Pep rallies so far this semester, 
according to head cheerleader for 
the Demons, Diane Clark, 'have 
ridiculous.' Student at- 
ce is almost non-existent, due 
people going home for the 
id, and to the general lack of 
concern. Attempts to rouse spirit 
rare frustrating and disappointing. 
; Diane continues that 'we don't have 
5 to beg for student support, but it is a 
shame that students don't want to 
come out and support the Demons 
when their season so far has been so 
good.' When asked about the 
absence of the band at the pep rally 
for the Texas-Arlington game, 
Diane replied that apparently not 
enough notice was given to the 
band, who were notified the same 
day of the pep rally. 

lc Pep rallies last year were held on 
o:Thursdays, but that schedule did 
qmot work. This year, with the pep 

rallies held on Fridays, the schedule 

apparently isn't working either, 
-ribecuse of the amount of students 
5; going home for the weekend. Pep 
^rallies are also only held for home 

.games, since students definitely will 
v:not stay on-campus for an away- 
l< game weekend. Plans to have music 

played through amplifiers to warm 
, i the crowd up have not been suc- 
cessful, as amplifiers that are 
u promised through the SGA do not 

show up. 

bi Football game attendance has 
,'Lalso proved disappointing. Turpin 
•ji Stadium has a seating capacity of 

16,000 and the last two games at 
ivhome were attended by crowds of 
'■ around 8000. Part of this problem 

again lies with the fact that most 
^ students go home on the weekend. 

The football games are exciting and 
,aare going to prove to be a sorely- 
n missed activity by those who don't 

- bother to attend, especially since the 
Demons are promising to be quite a 
ball club this season. 

The first speaker of the 
Distinguished Lecture Series, 
Richard Scammon, who appeared 
on September 15, was heard by only 
a handful of NSU students, some of 
whom attended due to request made 
by their instructor. The lecture 
proved interesting and provided a 

rare opportunity to hear an expert 
give enlightening predictions about 
the Presidential elections this 
November and political trend in 
general. Even if the student was not 
interested in politics, the lecture was 
a fine opportunity to learn about a 
democratic process which affects us 

These activities, pep rallies, 
football games, and the lecture, are 
not the only activities going on 

around campus. An incredibly long 
list of clubs, organizations, 
societies, sororities, fraternities, and 
student committees are available to 
the student. But it is up to the 
individual to decide whether or not 
he will participate. Student apathy 
seems to be some sort of fad or 
contagious desease this semester, 
and unfortunately those afflicted 
are missing out on the potentially 
advantageous experiencs of college 

Open House Is Held 
At Children's Center 

Open House was held recently at 
the NSU Children's Center for NSU 
students, parents, and faculty to 
view the facility and to bserve 
children who are enrolled at the 

Dr. R.J. Bienvenu, President of 
NSU; Mr. Morris F. Bass, vice 
president of University affairs; 
Cecil Knotts, director of Student 
Services, Rev. Bob Townsend of 
UMHE, and Cliff Lopez, president 
of SGA, were some of these who 
were given a tour of the Center. 

The Center is located in South 
Hall on the NSU campus and is 
arranged to accommodate children 
from 6 months to 2 years of age in 
one area of the building. Sarah 
Rager is the teacher for this age 
group. Children three and four 
years of age have educational 
materials and supplies available to 
them in several interest areas close 
to the entrance area of South Hall. 
Trish Comstock-Gilbert is the 
teacher for the older age group. 
Gessie Jones works with all children 
at the Center, helping both teachers 
as needed. Jewell Presson is the 
educational supervisor of the center 
and works with children and 

The NSU hildren's Center is

SUGB Sets 
Coming Events 
For Fall Term 

The Student Union Governing 
Board (SUGB) is currently planning 
for TECH Weekend, and 
Homecoming. In Shreveport for 
TECH Weekend all the motel rooms 
are booked because of the horse 
races. The SUGB and the SGA are 
jointly planning to charter some 
buses to run between Natchitoches 
and Shreveport for the football 

A multi-media slide show will be 
presented in the Student Union 
Ballroom on November 5. 'I Saw 
the Wind' is a slide and music 
presentation of America. The show 
will run for an hour and 20 minutes, 
and will be presented during 
homecoming week. 

A dinner theatre is being planned 
for November 24. 'Angel on my 
Shoulder' will be presented in the 
Student Union Ballroom and food 
will be catered. 

The SUGB is in the process of 
selecting a band for a concert, but 
no decisions have been reached. 

Elections will be held for vacant 
offices, and any interested students 
should come by and sign up at the 
SUGB office.

Consumer Credit Hassles Explained 

'How can he sue me? I paid 
something on that bill last month!' 
If people would read credit con- 
tracts carefully, they would learn 
that failure to make one full 
payment on the due date can result 
in the entire balance being called 
for. This is one of many common 
consumer misunderstandings. 

'While today's consumers are 

better informed than ever, there are 
still a few popular misconceptions 
about consumer rights,' says 
Charles W. Tapp, director of the 
State Office of Consumer 
Protection (OCP). 

Here are some of the more 
frequent mistaken notions heard by 
the OCP:

m "The University Police need a 
different type of patrol, they have 
done a good job, but they have to 
look at the alternatives." This was 
President Bienvenu 's remark on the 
University Police at last Monday's 
Student Government Association 
(SGA) meeting. 

Bienvenu commented that he used 
to ride a mo-ped around the 
campus, and he feels this could be 
utilized by the University Police at 
Northwestern. He stated that the 
University has to cut down on gas, 
and "...the cars won't take much 

Another area of discussion was 
the dark spots, and bad lighting 
around Natchitoches and Louisiana 

Pres. Bienvenu said, "We can't 
light it (the campus) up like 
daylight, but we can make every 
attempt." He also mentioned that 
there are people walking the campus 
at night looking for dark spots. 

Because of these dark spots it was 
brought up that girls living in 
Natchitoches Dorm are scared to 
walk from the parking lot to the 

Bienvenu's comments on the 
alleged rape after last Saturdays 
UTA football game was, "The most 
unfortunate thing that can hap- 

He urges girls to stay on lighted 
paths, not to walk around alone, or

Pres. Bienvenu also spoke about 
the city's plans to clan up 
Chaplain's Lake. The city has 
currently hired an engineer, and 
they will probably give it priority. 

Later in the meeting Pep Rallies 
were discussed, students are not 
participating enough, and due to 
lack of communication the band 
failed to show for the last pep rally. 

TECH Weekend and the lack of 
motel rooms was mentioned, and a 
suggestion was made to run buses 
between Natchitoches and 
Shreveport for the football game. 

A new bill was passed at the 
meeting, the bill will call for the 
Shreveport Campus President of the 
ADOS Council to be a represen- 
tative of the SGA here. This was 
brought about because the 
Shreveport student pay to belong to 
the SGA, and as of yet they are not 
represented. The bill reads, "A 
council shall be established, to be 
effective August 27, 1980, to 
represent the ADOS Campus of 
Nursing, and this council shall be 
named the ADOS Council. The 
council shall determine its by-laws

seat shall be established, to be ef-

do you have 30 or 60 days. This is 
perhaps the most tragic miscon- 
ception of all, because consumers 
often enter a questionable contract 
thinking they will be able to cancel it 
later. Unfortunately, the three-day 
cooling off period applies only to 
certain door-to-door sales, certain

certain credit transactions involving

Not necessarily. Layaway policies

layaway item. Stores are not 
necessarily obligated to refund the

NSU Press Prints 
Carver Anthology 

The Northwestern anthology of 
literary works by Ada Jack Carver, 
an award-winning Louisiana writer 
whose short stories about Cane 
River people were filled with sen- 
sitivity and local color. 

Edited by Dr. Mary Dell Fletcher, 
professor of English at NSU, the 
book is entitled "The Collected 
Works of Ada Jack Carver." 
Thirteen short stories and a one-act 
play written by Miss Carver are 
presented in the 212-page book, 
which also includes Dr. Fletcher's 
introductory essay on the writer. 

The book, the third to be 
published by the NSU Press, will be 
distributed in October. Copies of 
the anthology may be purchased in 
hardback cover for $12 and in 
paperback for $5.95. 

Among the short stories in the 
anthology are three works which 
won Miss Carver the coveted O. 
Henry Memorial Prize. The prize 
winners are "Treeshy" and "The 
Old One," published in 1926, and 
"Singing- Woman," a 1927 offering 
which also won story of the year 

Dr. Fletcher, an authority in 
southern literature, said Miss 
Carver's "Treeshy" was the first in 
a series of short stories concerning 
old people, while "Singing- 
Woman" was one of two stories 
depicting the displacement of the 
individual in a society where 
tradition is disappearing. 

"The Old One" was one of two 
stories Miss Carver wrote about 
elderly women whose minds are 
nurtured by memories of the past 
but whose physical existence is a 
daily struggle with the realities of 
the present. 

Miss Carver's "Redbone," which 
was a Harper Prize-winning story in 
1925, is considered by Dr. Fletcher 
and other literary critics to be one of 
the most powerful short stories ever 
written. It was also Miss Carver's 
most frequently-anthologized story. 

Other short stories by Miss 
Carver included in the NSU Press 
anthology are "A nk Inheritance," 
published in 1914; "The Story of 
Angele Glynn" and "The Joyous 
Coast," written in 1916; "Maudie" 
and "The Raspberry Dress," 
released in 1926; "Cotton Dolly," 
1927; "Little Mother of the 
Church," 1928; and her last story, 
"For Suellen With Love," 1949. 

Miss Carver published three 
plays, one of which was "The 
Cajun," her first serious attempt at 
drama. The one-act play, which is 
included in the anthology, was first 
produced by the Shreveport Little 
Theater. Later, it won second place 
in the Belasco Cup Competition in 
New York City and also won a 
Samuel French Prize. 

Dr. Fletcher's extensive in- 
vestigation of Miss Carver con- 
cluded that she "attracted con- 

siderable attention with local color 
stories of the Natchitoches area." 

Born in Natchitoches in 1890, 
Miss Carver's career as a writer was 
influenced by her parents. Dr. 
Fletcher stated in her essay that Miss 
Carver's mother, Ada Whitfield 
Jack, was a "poetically inclined 
woman" and her father, Marshall 
Hampton Carver, had a "deep 
feeling for the arts." 

Miss Carver published eight 
stories between 1925 and 1928, but 
her career was virtually over before 
the end of the 1920's. 

Dr. Fletcher states that she 
"failed in dealing with modern life 
because her sheltered life had made 
her ill-prepared to deal with it, and 
perhaps even more significant, that 
her real interest was in the exotic 
rather than in the ordinary." 

She added, "Another possible 
explanation for her failure to create 
the kind of stories that the 
publishers wanted lay in her ability 
or unwillingness to expose herself in 
recording the inner turmoils of her 
own sex and class. She was not 
psychologically equipped for that 
kind of frankness." 

Dr. Fletcher described Miss 
Carver's early works as "sen- 
timental" but said her more mature 
writings present a "detailed picture 
of Cane River life." 

University Police 

(Continued from pagel) 

Physical training teachers advise 
women to learn some form of self- 
defense, such as karate. Others 
advise scratching, kicking, biting 
and/or running. 

Dr. Robert Lamb, who wrote a 
book, RAPE, which was based on 
actual accounts says, "For some 
women learning karate would be a 
waste of time because they will be 
psychologically unable to put their 
training to use when they need it. 

Most police caution against the 
use of physical resistance. It may 
provoke more severe violence, 
injury, or death. 

The potential rapist is 
emotionally disturbed. He doesn't 
suffer from abnormal sex drives, 
but from uncontainable anger 
toward society. It is this abusive act 
itself that obsesses him, not a 
specific target. 

Police advise women to walk in 
well-lighted paths, to always look 
alert and self-assured, and to keep 
doors of their cars locked, even if 
you will just be gone for a few 
minutes. They also suggest that you 
keep your room door locked. 

Student Nutrition Important 

It's hard to stay slim if you're a 
student today. 

'Irregular schedules, snacks and 
socializing all seem to work against 
a student's selecting nutritious 
meals that satisfy without providing 
far more calories than needed,' says 
nutrituionist Peggy Gentry of the 
LSU Cooperative Extension Ser- 

A freshman may easily gain 10 
pounds between registration and 
semester's end, according to Mrs. 
Gentry, who adds that most 
students blame weight gains on 'that 
starch cafeteria food.' 

'It's true, cafeterias do pose a 
problem for students,' says Mrs. 
Gentry. She adds, however, it's not 
so much the fare as the students' 
selections that cause repid weight 

'Students often select trays laden 
with starchy foods, such as starchy 
vegetables, noodles, cereals, bread 
and dessert while passing up the 
fruits and vegetables,' says the 
Extension specialist. 

Irregular schedules that may 
mean an early class one day a late 
start the next day make it easy to 
skip breakfast or other meals. This 
often leads to a quick snack of 
coffee and doughnut or a soft drink 
and candy bar from vending 

Dorm eating, eating out at 
popular places and dating all 
contribute to a student's tendency to 
overeat foods that produce many 
calories and consequently, extra 

It takes thought, knowledge of 
food and some discipline to 
overcome the many problems a 
student seems to face in trying to eat 
simply and well, according to Mrs. 

The Extension nutritionist offers 
some reminders for the student who 
wants to stay or get slim while also 
maintaining energy and alertness. 

Fletcher Studies 

Dr. Mary Dell Fletcher of 
Northwestern is the author of an 
article on Ernest Hemingway in the 
current issue of "Explicator," 
national literary journal distributed 
by heldref Publications of 
Washington, D. C. 

In the article, the NSU professor 
of English explores the symbolic 
significance of the setting of 
Hemingway's short story, "Hills 
Like White Elephants." 

The famous short story is all 
dialogue, with the exception of the 
opening paragraph, and two sets of 
railroad tracks provide the setting. 

"On one side of the track," states 
Dr. Fletcher, "are the dry hills or 
brown land and on the other side is 
the beautiful mountainous country. 
One side is positive and the other 
side is negative. The significance of 
this setting is what I examine for 

Strive each day to eat a variety of 
foods from the four major groups. 
To do this: Select four servings of 
fruit and vegetables; drink four 
glasses of milk or its equivalent; eat 
two servings of meat, fish or poultry 
or beans; eat cereal and w hole-grain 
or enriched bread for at least four 
servings. Avoid food not in these 
four groups, as well as alcoholic 
beverages, because they add calories 
with little nutrition. 

Try to select fresh fruits and 
vegetables at each meal. Select them 
as salad, dessert or snack. Fruits 
and vegetables provide bulk and 
fiber to the diet, while grain breads 
and cereals also add needed fiber to 
the diet. Select a food or juice that 
provides vitamin C every day. 
Good sources are citrus fruits and 
Juices, tomatoes and juice, dark 
green vegetables, such as broccoli 
and greens. 

Try to eat fruits and vegetables 
raw or cooked simply. Avoid rich 
gravies, dressings and fried foods. 
For example, a fresh vegetable salad 

may have few calories by itself, but 
the calories can be quadrupled by 
adding two containers of salad 
dressing. One pat of margarine of a 
potato or roll adds 40 calories of 
fat. Fruits with heavy syrup also 
add calories. 

Select foods carefully when eating 
in the dorm, dating or gathering at a 
popular fast-food restaurant. 
Pizza, hamburgers, fries and ice 
cream may be nutritious, but they 
are high in calories. 

A quick meal of hamburger, fries 
and soft drink can provide 800 to 
1200 calories. This may be more 
than half the recommended calories 
for a whole day for a female 
student. A quarter of a 14-inch 
pizza provides 400 calories. Extra 
ingredients may make it even richer 
in calories. A 12-ounce soft drink 
or beer provides 150 calories. 

While no food need be eliminated 
from the diet, each food selection 
needs to be worked into a total daily 
food plan that allows for calories 
and necessary nutrients. 

Eat breakfast. Studies show 
students who eat breakfast perform 
better and learn more readily than 
those who do not eat this important 
meal. Ideally, a good breakfast 
includes a protein food, a source of 
vitamin C, a bread or cereal and a 
glass of milk. Limited time need not 
make breakfast impossible. An egg 
or cheese sandwich, orange or juice 
and milk meet the recommendation 
and are quick to eat. An egg may be 
boiled the evening before and a 
cheese sandwich prepared in ad- 
vance. Even a granola bar or other 
quick nutritious food and milk are 
preferred to skipping breakfast 

Additional information on meal 
and snack selections and their 
calories and nutrition content is 
available from a home economist of 
the LSU Cooperative Extension 
Service assigned to every parish in 
Louisiana. The Extension Service 
also offers free booklets that list the 
calories found in common foods. 

Biology Professor Gets Grant 

Dr. Arthur S. Allen has been 
awarded a $20,000 grant to continue 
investigations into the use of a host- 
plant fungus to provide biological 
control of water hyacinth, an 
aquatic weed which has infested 
Louisiana waterways 

The grant to the NSU professor 
of biological sciences is sponsored 
by the Office of Water Research and 
Technology in the U.S. Department 
of Interior. The award is ad- 
ministered through the Louisiana 
Water Resources Research Institute 
in Baton Rouge. 

Allen's research project, which 
was funded for $40,000 last year, 
involves a commercially cultivated 
fungus known as Cersospora 
rodmanii, a beneficial pathogen 
capable of destroying the leaves of 
waterhyacinth and decomposing the 
plant to eliminate regeneration. 

According to Allen, who is being 
assisted by NSU student Chris 
Piehler of Zwolle, the first year of 
the aquatic weed control research 
project produced three major 
developments for university 
scientists involved in the study. 

"Our first achievement," he said, 
"is that we found the proper stage 
of the waterhyacinth that is subject 
to infection by the fungus. 
Secondly, we now know how to 
mass culture the fungus in the 
laboratory to cause it to produce an 
increased amount of spores which 
can be sprayed over the cages 
containing our test plots." 

The third development, which 
Allen says is the most important to 
investigators, is that they have 
"found the exact site of fungus 
penetration on the leaf blades of the 
waterhyacinth. These sites are the 
natural openings in the upper leaf 
blade surface." 

Allen stated, "Instead of putting 
pesticides in Louisiana waterways, 
we will be putting in a known, very- 
selective fungu that hits only the 
waterhyacinth plant. The fungus 
does not harm any of the major 
economic plants in the south." 

He added, "By doing it this way, 
we allow the fungus to over-winter, 
rebuild its own population and 
during the following season re- 
infect more waterhyacinths. We are 
trying to build a natural biological

control that will produce substantial 
savings for the state in its control 

The Northwestern professor said 
12 large floating cages have been 
distributed in three locations. The 
test sites are on Old Riber Cutoff 
near Natchez, Lake Martainne in 
Marco and Saline Lake. Last year, 
only one cage was placed in each 
location for observation. 

"We seeded each cage in March 
with 30 waterhyacinth plants only," 
said Allen. "Now, with the growth 
we have gotten, there are between 
500 and 700 plants per cage." 

The rapid spread of the plant was 
caused primarily by the unusually 
hot summer. "At 80 degrees 
Fahrenheit," explains Allen, "each 
plant can double its number in 10 
days. With the heat of this summer 
where we had high temperaturea of 
100 degrees or better and 90 degrees 
or higher on the water's surface- 
each plant was doubling its number 
every eight days. These plants have 
a tremendous reproductory 
capability, especially at 80 to 90 
degrees Fahrenheit at the water's 

Beginning this fall, Allen and his 
research assistant will be concerned 
wih devising the first prototype low- 
pressure spray applicator which can 
be used to spray the waterhyacinth 
plants with a fine mist containing 
thousands of the spores produced 
by the fungus. 

Assays of the test plots designated 
in the research project will be 

conducted on a regular basis for two 
to three weeks "to get an index of 
how severe the infection is and to 
determine how quick the build-up 


Allen and his research assistant 
will count the number of the in- 
fected 'spots" produced on the 
waterhyacinth leaves every three 
days until the assay is complete. 
"We need to find out how quickly 
the plant will decay because of 
fungus action." he said. 

According to the NSU professor, 
the U.S. Corps of Engineers' 
Waterways Experiment Station at 
Vicksburg, Miss., has conducted 
research on Lake Concordia, and 
the studies show that biological 
control of waterhyacinth is feasible 
in Louisiana. 

Allen explained that aquatic plant 
researchers of the U.S. Corps of 
Engineers began studying the use of 
the fungus to control waterhyacinth 
in 1974, the year it was first released 
into Louisiana. The fungus 
produces a disease condition known 
as "leaf spot", which deteriorates 
the water hyacinth plant.

La Vere's Report 
Rescue Operation 

Once again, the students at NSU 
have been called upon to help out 
the university. Or should I say, 
come to its rescue. With the 
university entering into a campaign 
of cost cutting, President Bienvenu 
has called on the student body to 
assist in the campaign. 

Helping out the university would 
be a highly admirable and unselfish 
thing to do. And I, for one, have 
always been a big fan of con- 
servation. (Less is more, and that 
sort of stuff.) But if the student 
body was really organized, they 
would realize that they could 
possibly barter their assistance for 
some rather tangible items- such as 
alcohol on campus, better services, 
and the like. When it really comes 
down to it, if the NSU student body, 
or even some good percentage of 
them, were really organized; you 
could have whatever your minds 
could conceive of. 

But, of course, the student body 
nor any good percentage of it is 
really organized. Not even half- 
way organized. But in reality, 
unorganized. And this is probably 
best for everyone concerned. It 
leaves total command and control 
of the university in the ad- 
ministration's hands. But, above 
all, it relieves you from having to 
make any painful or far- reaching 
decisions. (We all know that 

students are not capable of making 
any type of university policies.) 

But there is no use to dwell upon 
the fact that the students can't 
organize. It would be totally absurd 
to believe that the students would 
demand, much less get, any con- 
cessions in return for their 

Since we wouldn't have the nerve 
to ask for anything anyway, we 
might as well conserve energy. Who 
knows, maybe they really will put 
the money back into education, and 
not create some new administrative 

Saving energy does take a con- 
scious effort, but it doesn't take 
much to develop a conservation 
habit. Turn off lights that aren't 
being used. Don't use two lights 
when you only need one. Before 
you pass out at night, force yourself 
to get up and turn the stereo or 
television off. 

Don't use so much water. Take a 
shorter shower and don't fill the tub 
so full for a bath. 

This coming winter, wear warmer 
clothes indoors so you won't to 
keep the room so warm. 

Look, saving money and cutting 
costs are big things, and they will be 
vital to NSU in the coming years. 
So go ahead, try some conservation, 
but if you can find a way to get 
some thing for your help- go for it. 

Politics at NSU 

It appears that big- time politics 
has come to NSU. 

SGA class senator elections went 
yesterday, and to be sure, I really 
didn't know who to vote for. There 
were so many candidates and so few 
that I knew anything about. 

Campaign signs have been 
plastered over most of the campus. 
And I don't just mean little, make- 
shift signs, but huge, well- printed 
signs. Candidate cards have also 
made their appearance. You know, 
those little printed cards with the 
candidate's picture or name and 
their slogan. I was impressed. 

Folks, some money has been 
spent on this election. I mean when 
you think of paper, paint, tape, and 
printing costs, these things run 
rather high. One candidate told me 
that he and Mom and Dad spent 
close to $100 on his campaign. I'm 
sure that some others came close to 
that figure. 

I don't know how much is spent 
at other universities, but $100 for a 
class senator, well, that's pretty 

There were some interesting 
campaign signs. For the biggest 
signs, I'll have to say freshman 
candidates, Harlan Harvey and 
Allison Arthur, and sophomore 
candidate, Sherri Reeves took that 
category. They probably spent the 
most, also. 

Freshman candidates, Bill Bailey 
and Beth Richard, had some in- 
teresting signs. I really must tip my 
hat to Ms. Richard. She even had 
campaign posters stuck all over the 
men's bathroom. 

Amazingly, the upper- class 
candidates did not seem to cam- 
paign too hard. 

The big SGA election comes in 
the spring, when we vote for SGA 
officers. That will be the time we 
will have to look at the candidate 
and not his signs. 

Hopefully, by that time, we might 
could come up with a Free- Speech 
Alley and hear first- hand what 
their position is. Even a debate 
between the two SGA presidential 
candidates might prove interesting. 

But above all, it is a positive sign 
to see anyone register.

Crickets Hold NSU Hostage 

Welcome to HOUSEHOLD 
PEST U., Home of the Fighting 
Vermin. It seems as if the whole 
campus is being inundated with 
rodents, roaches, house flies, and 
these blasted crickets. Is there no 
relief? In a day and time when we 
can destroy people and leave their 
buildings intact, why can't we get 
rid of a few of these creatures ' 

Don't try to tell me that, since the 
Rapides Rat is safely behind bars, I 
have nothing to fear, but fear itself. 
I caught one myself in the Arts and 
Sciences Building. A long and lanky 
white devil. 

Now, of course, I know that 
nothing can be done about roaches, 
because countless generations have 
tried. But, I do think that it's about 
time that we negotiated a treaty with 
them and got them a seat in the 
U.N. If you stroll through any 
building on this campus at night you 
can see countless hoards of them. 
And what really gripes me is that 
not a single one of them has paid the 
building use fee. I am constantly 
reminded of the saying that Ar- 
magedon will be fought between 
gonorrhea and a cockroach. 

House flies, I suppose you have 
noticed, are completely taking over 
the dining halls. I hear that this has 
something to do with the university 
borrowing the heavy artillery for an 
all out offensive in the dorms. 


I'm rather proud of the ingenuity 
shown by many of my peers in the 
Battle of the Fly. One of the best 
tactics that I have heard is to buy 
extra food and put it at the next 
table with a sien reading: "Free to 

And for the person on a low 
budget, one astute individual 
devised a plan which I admire for its 
simplicity and "Intellect over In- 
sect" overtones. She suggests that 
you put all of your books on one 
table and then eat on the opposite 
side of the dining hall. If you eat 
fast you might finish half of your 
lunch before they figure out that 
they have been duped and send one 
of their kamikazi warriors to die in 
your milk. 

I believe I must make one serious 
point right here. If you would pick 
up your trays, preferably walking 
slowly enough that the flies can keep 
up with you, and put them on the 
conveyor belt, maybe they would 
get bored with all the cleanliness and 
go hang out in the kitchen. 

Finally, a word about crickets. I 
know that crickets are highly prized 
in the Orient for their singular 
acoustical abilities, but, this is 
ridiculous. There are so many 
crickets around here that I feel as if 
I were living in a baithouse. Walk in 
front of the Arts and Sciences 
Building and look at the steps. 

Never has such carnage been seen in 
front of a public building since the 
St. Valentine's Day Massacre. 

I know that somewhere out there 
a "Save the Cricket" campaign is 
being formed. But, if I find one 
more cricket setting up 
house keeping in my shoe, the 
ecology won't he the onlv thing 

that's unbalanced. 

So, I'm calling for all out 
chemical warfare. And if we can't 
drug the poor defenseless creatures, 
then give it to me. All this buzzing, 
chirping, creeping, squeaking, and 
flapping is beginning to bug me, if 
you know what I mean. 

Editorial Blasted 

Dear Mr. Gailien, 

I usually can't find the time to 
write rebuttals to editorial columns 
but between reading the Shreveport 
Times and Rolling Stone I noticed 
your piece on journalistic 
responsibility and just could not 
help myself. 

I must say I was glad to see 
someone write on the subject of 
objective news reporting even 
though I disagree with most of your 
points and feel that you were totally 
off base. 

For the sake of brevity I will only 
comment on the examples you used. 
First of all, you accused the news 
media of 'waiting like vultures for a 
candidate to slip up and say 
something wrong', good simile Mr. 
Gailien, but totally wrong. It's not 
the news media's fault if Ronald 
Reagan can't get his facts straight 
on the origin of the K.K.K.. Let's 
not forget that this man is a 
presidential candidate and should 
not make blunders like that. When 
he does it's newsworthy and should 
be reported but not exploited. I 
think it received the amount of 
coverage because President Carter 
then came out and denounced 
Reagan for his incorrect statements. 

Again this is newsworthy and 
subjected to a reporter's news 

Another point, if a network 
simply aired Reagan's views on the 
issues during that speech and 
overlooked his 'boner' then they 
could be accused of biased reporting 
favoring Reagan. 

Moving on to your point on 
President Carter and the so called 
'Billy Gate' affair. True, the press 
could be blamed for exploitative 
reporting on this event but 
sometimes when you keep digging 
and exposing it to the public you 
never know what you might come 
up with. Watergate proved that to 
us. I am sure you are aware that 
C.B.S. was accused of attacking 
Former President Nixon with biased 
coverage. Two of the most 
respected broadcast journalists, in 
Walter Cronkite and Dan Rather 
were at the receiving end of those 
accusations. The whole issue is 
debatable but remember these 
national reporters are of the highest 

professional integrity and strive for 
total objectivity. 

Now what really made me laugh 
was your claims that the local news 
media was upset over Gov. Treen's 
spending ceiling. I keep pretty close 
tabs on the events and the coverage 
coming out of Baton Rouge and I 
have not been the complaints of the 
legislators that you heard which 
again are newsworthy. I know 
because I have used some statements 
from local legislators who oppose 
and support Treen's action. I sure 
hope you don't consider this biased 

The only point that I agreed with 
you on was journalists are only 
critiqued or 'policed' by other 
journalists and the public. But 
remember nothing stops politioans 
from criticizing jounalists when 
their reporting doesn't serve their 
best interest. How disastrous it 
would be if newsmen and women 
were held responsible to the

Dear Radical Rag III, 

Thank you! I'd just like to thank 
RR III for the compliment in last 
weeks article. I'd just like to also

me for as long as they have. 

I want everyone to know we're 
trying to get the best movies we can

difficult to please everyone, but 
we're trying to get at least a couple 
that should interest everyone. 

Please, if anyone has a suggestion 
about the movies, for the movies, 
how to improve them or otherwise 
tell me or a committee member. 
Better yet if you have the time and 
would like to help pick the movies

Thursday nights at 6:00 p.m. in 
Kyser Auditorium before the movie.

Dear NSU Student Body: 

Hi! As a former student and 
teaching graduate assistant (BE, 
DE, and OA Department) I was 
very thrilled and excited to see the 
enthusiastic support shown for 
YOUR Demons when they 
played host to the University of 
Texas Arlington, I believe this 
support that was shown is second 
only to the support you gave our 
Demons at the Louisiana Tech game 
last year. 

YES!!!! The Demons are alive! 
From their first two outings one can 
see that the Demons are a team to be 
reckoned with this season. Could 
the familiar phrase 'Philibert-Liles' 
be replaced by 'Hebert-Liles?' It 
seems that way! How about a new 
cheer - 'Leo, Leo, Leo!!!!' What a 
kicker!! Yes! Who can't forget that 
Tough Demon offensive line - or 
that awesome defensive line! THIS 

Therefore, let's keep up this 
support. Get behind you Demons 
100%. See you at the next game!!! 

Sincerely yours, 
Barbara Matthew 

Ex-Student Teaching Graduate 

I just finished reading the article 
in last week's Current Sauce, "Rat 
Runs Rampant In Rapides." And, 
in all fairness, I think that equal 
time should be given to the resident 
mascot of Louisiana Dorm; a little, 
friendly scamper named Herbie. 

Herbie is a little furry rat with a 
tail as long as his body. His home is 
the first floor of Louisiana. He is 
actually kind of a shy creature; he 

doesn't come out too often when 
there are alot of people around. But 
around five-thirty in the morning, 
when most everybody is sleeping, he 
usually makes an appearance in the 
front lobby. He has a bit of a 
routine to it; he'll dart out of the 
hallway, make a quick dash around 
a few of the gold chairs if they are 
near the wall by the H.D.'S Office, 
then squiggle behind the TV set for 
a little frolic in the mounds of 
dust. Then he will emerge again, 
dashing across the floor and into a 
favorite crevice in the woodwork. 
Sometimes he might stop to play 
under the big purple box where the 
Current Sauces are kept... 

Rumor has it that he is the house 
director, Flo Cran's, live-in 
boyfriend. Nobody really knows 
for sure, but those of us who have 
seen him agree that he is a friendly 
little critter who wouldn't hurt a 
human. I don't know of anyone 
who has been around him who has 
ever tried to organize an attack on 
little Herbie, let alone incarcerate 
him in a styrofoam ice chest and 
cart him all around the school for 
everybody to stare at. We here in 
Louisiana feel that he has just as 
much right to live here as the rest of 
the humans and cockroaches that 
are oyer on this side of campus, 
besides, as most of us who wake up 
to study at this ungodly hour of 
five-thirty am. know, it is hard to 
get the eyes to open up so early, 
least more to have to hit the books, 
and Herbie's appearance has a 
tendency to open up even the 
sleepiest eyes. 

I guess I should know-he was 
down here to greet me as I stumbled 
down the stairs this morning, 
criminology book in hand, fumbling 
towards the study table, eyes 
squinting until-SQUEEEEEEK... 

(Good morning, Herbie!)

NSU Ski Club Has 
Plans For Big Future 

NSU Skier In Action 

Mary Lee Posey is Presented Award 


Sking has always been a favorite 
pastime in Natchitoches and now 
the university has joined in on the 
action thanks to some very talented 
and dedicated skiers. 

Mark Thompson is accredited for 
founding the ski club at NSU and 
has been skiing for most of his life. 
"When I came to NSU I was really 
interested in starting a club, I knew 
Northeast had one of the best and 
that NSU could hava a good one 
too," said Mark. "I talked to some 
of the guys around campus and I 
heard that Natchitoches had a lot of 
good skiers so we decided to call a 
meeting of all the interested people 
and see what happened . At first we 
were going to ski on the lake but 
things didn't work out so we moved 
to the River, he continued. 

The club has grown in members 
as well as in tournament par- 
ticipation. The members of the team 
are, Mark Thompson, President; 
Michael LaCombe, Vice-President; 
Russell Cook, Treasurer; Fred 
Hamilton, Nicki Choate and Jeff 
Powell, Tournament directors; 
Steve Allen, Mitzy Linsey, Hayes 
Worley and Thad Canjellosi." We 
are still looking for club members 
and the club can have up to 25 
members, said Mark. 

" We ski just about all year but 
our main tournaments are held in 
the fall and in the spring. We really 
compete aganist some good schools 
and good skiers. Some of the 
schools that they compete aganist 
are LSU, Louisiana Tech, McNeese, 
Northeast, Texas A'M, the 
University of Texas, Tulane and 
Baylor, just to name a few, so our 
work is really cut out for us," said 

Apparently NSU has done a 
pretty good job of handleing the 
competition, they have received nine 
trophies and have placed invarous 
tournaments thourghout Texas and 

Some of the tounaments they 
competed in last Spring were the 
Polar Bear central tournament held 
at Texas A'M, a tournament at 
Lamar in Beaumont Tex.; a 
tournament at LSU,( where they 

starting at speeds of 28 m.p.h. if 
you make it through the course at 
that speed then you continue to 
increase your speed till you get up to 
36 m.p.h.s if you makeit through 
the bouys at that speed then 15 feet

competed in several tournaments 
this year. 

To compete the club is divided 
into teams, there are five of the best 
skiers and jumpers on the A team 
and the rest of the club is on the B 
team. The A team is chosen by the 
tournament directors and receive 
the team scores at a tournament. 

"Each member that participtes in 
a tournament pays a $15 entry fee 
and everyone is judged," com- 
mented Mark. " In the slalom 
division you ski through bouys 

is taken off the rope and you ski 
again. Jumpers are judged on 
distance and trick skiers are judged 
by the turns they make and their is a 
certain point value put on the 
tricks," he explained. 

We have really come a long way 
this year and we are thankful for the 
time effort and support from 
various business and people in 
town. Sports Village has helped 
with T-shirts for the club members; 
B'F lumber donated wood for our 
ski jump; Arthur Allen has helped 
out as our faculty advisor and T.L. 
Miller really helped out by letting us 
use his property," said Mark. 

The Ski Club is really improving 
and are a part of the American 
Water Ski Association and if the 
past is any indication of the future 
then the ski club is well on its way to 
national recognition.

is the reason that I have chosen to 
do this particular play." 

The play revolves around three 
terminally ill patients: Joe, played 
by Jeff Conley, Brian played by 
Bryan Reeder, and Felicity played

Doll's House" opens Sept. 27 

The 1980-81 season of the NSU 
Department of Theatre and Speech 
will open Saturday, September 27 
with the department's production of 
'A Doll's House.' The play will be 
performed in the auditorium of 
Keyser Hall on September 27-30 at 
7:30 p.m. 

Due to the renovations being 
done on the A. A. Fredericks Fine 
Art Building, the department has 
been left without a traditional 
production facility. The members 
of the department consider their 
homeless state to be a chance to 
expand the educational op- 
portunities of their majors and to 
offer a more diverse range of ex- 
periences to their audiences. 

Staging a traditional one-interior 
play like 'A Doll's House' in Keyser 
Hall's auditorium, has presented 
some challenges to the director, 
Susan Higgs Monday. The principle

difficulties have been with the size 
of the stage, which is less than half 
the size of the Little Theatre Stage 
where plays are usually done. 

To increase the area available for 
the action, Monday has placed 
many entrances and exits in the 
center of the audience. Some 
sections will be performed in the 
aisles, bringing the watcher much 
closer to the action. 

Scene designer Terry Monday has 
constructed a suggestive realistic set 
on the stage area; and, the audience 
areas are defined by the lighting 

design of Bill Humphreys. Vic- 
torian era costumes for the 
prodution are being created by 
Sandra Helton. Stephen Campbell 
will serve as stage manager for the 
performances and Bill Carloss will 
manage the props. James Byrd will 
produce the sound effects needed 
for the play. 

NSU students will be admitted 
with their ID cards. Adults and 
faculty will be charged $2.50 and 
non-NSU students $1.50 for general 
admission seating. Reservations are 
not being taken for this production.

NSU Win Not Artistic 

Its Lonely A t The Top Don sepuivado 

Ouarterback Bobby Hebert looks for someone to take the pitch in Saturday's game . 

Demons Make It Three In A Row 
With 22-3 Rout of Lumberjacks 

Behind the typically outstanding 
passing performance of Bobby 
Hebert and the typically out- 
standing running of Joe Delaney 
and the untypical tenacity of the 
Northwestern defense, the Demons 
crushed Stephen F. Austin's 
Lumberjacks 22-3 in a penalty 
marred and wet contest . 

The game started off on an 
unusual note. For the first time this 
year a Leo Clement kickoff was 
returned out of the end zone. SFA's 
Duan Hanks returned the kick to 
the SFA's 28 for the first Lum- 
berjack possession. Stephen F. 
looked as though they would run 
right over NSU in the early going as 
they rambled downfield on their 
first possession some 72 yards 
before fumbling on the one yard 
line. NSU's David Henningam 
recovered the 'jack fumble and the 
Demons were temporarily out of 

The Demons could manage 
only eight yards on their initial 
possession before sending Clement 
to the back of the end zone for a 
punt. Even with a high snap 
Clement managed to get off a good 
41 yard kick and a SFA runback of 
three yards gave the 'jacks first 
down and ten from the thirty eight. 
SFA could not make any yardage on 
their next opportunity and punted 
the ball back to Northwestern. NSU 
could not move it either and another 
Clement punt of 51 yards put the 
ball on the SFA 20. SFA went to 
punt again on their third possession 
and this time the punt was blocked 
by Demon Tommy Rushing and the 
ball only went for 19 yards. This set 
up the Demons first score. After 
moving for 32 yards in 10 plays and 
four penalties worth 55 yards the 
Demons finally managed to get on 
the board with a 28 yard field goal 
from Leo Clement to take a 3-0 
lead. Leo "the Leg" then resumed 
his old antics and style and boomed 
the ball out of the end zone thus 
making it impossible for SFA 
to return the kick. SFA was forced 
to punt after gaining only three 
yards on their next possession. 

NSU could not capitalize and the 
"Leg" went back to punt and got 
off a towering boomer that sailed 
for 57 yards. SFA finally amounted 
to what would be their only drive of 
the night by going 81 yards on 13 
plays and three penalties and settled 
for a 24 yard field goal. Nor- 
thwestern's next drive came to an 
abrupt end when tight end Barry 
Rubin fumbled an Hebert pass at 
the 5 yard line and an end to a 
almost sure NSU touchdown. 
However the Demon defense 
continued to do a outstanding job 
on the 'jack offense and forced 
them to Dunt ag ain. Thi s time a 


punt of only 37 hards and a 5 yard 
return by Sonny Louis set up 
another Demon score. This time it 
took only two plays for the Demons 
to score and the first one did not 
really count. Hebert just missed 
Victor Oatis on a play that had six 
points written all over it but NSU 
fans quickly stopped worrying 
about that when Hebert dumped a 
quick screen to speedster Joe 
Delaney who took the pass and with 
a bit of expert footwork ran forty 
yards for the Demon score. 
However Clement missed the first of 
two extra point attempts and the 
Demon lead was 9-3. If this was an 
omen only higher ups knew, but for 
the second time in the same game 
and the second time all year a 
Clement kickoff was returned out of 
the end zone. However Sonny 
Louis creamed the SFA runner on 
the 13 yard line and two plays later 
the first half was over. 

If the first half could be summed 
in a short way it would have to , be 
"penalties". The Demons were 
caught with 9 no-no's for 103yards 
and 'jacks were caught with 5 for 33 
yards. However, if the second half 
could be summed up shortly and 
sweetly it would be the half of the 

NSU took the second half 
kickoff and went straight downfield 
in five minutes and thirty second 
and scored another touchdown on a 
Td. pass to tight end Greg Manning 
from Hebert. Clement added the 
PAT and it was 16-3 NSU. Another 
Clement kickoff was returned but 
his hang time was so good that 
several Demons were down the field 
to totally wipe out the SFA ball 
carrier after a return of only 10 
yards. Demon Darrell Toussaint 
intercepted an errant SFA pass a 
couple of plays later to give the 
Demons a first and ten on the 'jack 
25. After several penalties the 
Demons were forced into trying a 
field goal but Clements kick sailed 
wide right. 

After a gallant but 
obviously futile attempt at trying to 
sustain a drive against the pumped 
up Tasmanian Devil defense the 
Lumberjack's punted the ball out at 
the NSU four yard line. The 
Demons apeared to be headed for 
another six points as the offensive 
line was giving Hebert all day to 
pass but a Hebert fumble put a end 
to that. Stephen F. quarterback 
Gary Jentz ran the ball and in two 
succesive plays fumbled the ball 
both times. The first time SFA got 
the ball back. The second time they 
did not. Bud Snodgrass recovered 
the SFA fumble on the NSU 49. But 
NSU could not capitaize and was 
forced to punt again. SFA punted 
too. NSU Dunted aeain too. SFA 


took over and then quarterback 
Jentz fumbled again and Demon 
Warren Williams recovered on the 
NSU 48. From there the Demons 
went 52 yards in only 6 plays and 
one penalty with the clincher 
coming on an Hebert to Liles pass 
for eight yards and six points. 
Clement's PAT sailed wide, but 
obviously rejuvenated by the score, 
the "Leg" sailed the ball out of the 
end zone as he began to return to his 
old form. SFA almost added a 
touchdown toward the end of the 
game, but a fine goal line stand by 
the Demon defense prevented the 
score. NSU took over and ran out 
the clock to preserve a 22-3 win that 
upped their recored to 3-0. And for 
the fifth straight year Chief Caddo 
will be back in Natchitoches to 
resume his position of extreme 
erectness and personal confidant to 
the Demon coaching staff.

It wasn't what you would call an 
artistic performance, but the 
Northwestern State Demons played 
well enough to beat Stephen F. 
Austin 22-3 Saturday night to move 
their record to 3-0 for the season. 

The Demons won for the first 
time on the road since the second 
game of the 1978 season when they 
defeated Stephen F. Austin 21-14. 
The 1978 season was also the last 
time the Demons started off the 
season with three straight wins. 

Against the Lumberjacks 
Saturday night the Demons hurt 
themselves with penalties and 
mental lapses, and that's something 
Coach A. L. Williams says has to be 
corrected before the Demons take 
the field this Saturday night at 
McNeese State. 

"We had a number of penalties 
(16 for 185 yards) that were cer- 
tainly unnecessary," stated 
Williams. "Time after time we hurt 
ourselves when we were down close 
to scoring and we just can't afford 
to do that." 

After edging to a 9-3 halftime 
lead the Demons scored the first 
they had the ball in the third quarter 
and then let the defense do the 
work. Northwestern had troubles 
moving the ball in the first half and 
did not score a touchdown until 
quarterback Bobby Hebert hit Joe 
Delaney on a 40-yard screen pass 
with 28 seconds left in the second 

Hebert had trouble in the early 
going and did not get untracked 
until the second half. He hit on only 
one of his first six passes before 
ending the night with 16 com- 
pletions in 28 attempts with Doug 
Manning and Randy Liles for seven 
yard touchdou n passes. 

While the offense had trouble 
getting started, the defense played 
probably its best game of the year in 
not giving up a touchdown for the 
first time since the middle of the 
1977 season. 

The Lumberjacks took the 
opening kickoff and marched to the 
NSU two-yard line. But when David 
Hennigan recovered a SFA fumble 
there, the Lumberjacks had wasted 
their best opportunity for a 
touchdown. Stephen F. Austin 
gained 126 yards on the ground on 
43 attempts. If you take away the 51 
yards that were gained on two end- 
reverse plays the statistics look even 
more impressive. 

"The defense has come along 
each week," noted Williams, "We 
are young, but in critical situations 
the kids have been making the plays. 
The defense did a tremendous job 
on the goal-line situations. We gave 
the ball to the offense in good field 
position enough for them to do 
something with it." 

The Demons came through the 
game in good physical shape as no 

additional players are expected to 
miss the McNeese contest this week. 

Williams doesn't expect any 
major changes in the line-up this 
week, although he did mention that 
place-kicker Dale Quickel may get a 
chance this week on short placement 
attempts. Quarterback Eric Barkley 
was unable to play Saturday night 
because of a virus illness but he is 
expected to be fully recovered this 

Demons To Face Strong McNeese Team 

The last time a Northwestern 
football team won their first four 
games was in 1967 when they 
knocked of such nationally 
renowned powerhouses as Hanover 
College, (from somewhere in In- 
diana) La College, (before they 
disbanded football) Pensacola 
Naval Air Station, (from 
somewhere in the depths of Florida) 
and Northeast (who in all fairness 
enjoyed a fairly good year). 

In '67 it was La. Tech that 
stopped the Demons winning streak 
at four, this year the McNeese State 
University Cowboys will try to play 
the role of spoiler. 

If any team on the Demons 
schedule could do it then it would 
probably be McNeese. The 
Cowboys are coming off an 11-0 
regular season last year and their 
only loss came in the Independence 
Bowl to a very powerful Syracuse 
team by the score of 31-7. 

Demon Playground 

The Fall intramural season 
continued this past week with the 
Horseshoes and Punt, Pass, and 
Kick championships. Lady Demon 
basketball player Linda Jones of Un 
Kappa Fifth took first place. Jones' 
teammate, Tracy Taylor gathered 
second place in the singles. 

Karen Briggs and Terri Jenkins, 
representing TNT, teamed up to 
take first place in the doubles ac- 
tion. Linda Jones and Mary 
Humphrey of Un Kappa Fifth 
captured second. 

Randy Robinson of Conine took 
first place in the Mens horseshoes 
individual competition. Paul Day, 
also of Conine, grabbed second 

In the doubles competition Day

Michael Harbison and Doug 
Rhodes of Pi Kappa Phi to take the 

In the Punt, Pass and Kick 
competition, Debie Spica of TNT

This year the Pokes will bring 
back most of their stars from that 
team. Among them are running 
backs Theron McClendon, kicker 
Don Stump, tackle Clay Carrol, (the 
most valuable defensive player in 
last years Indy bowl) DarylBurckel 
and Rusty Guilbeau. Stump, 
Guilbeau, Burckel were all 
Southland Conference last year. 
Stump made the first team while 
Guilbeau and Buckel were named to 
the second team. 

McNeese is coming into this game 
at 3-0 after impressive wins over 
West Texas State 20-17, Toledo 20- 
17, and Nicholls St. 21-0. No in- 
dividual stats were available at press 
time on the McNeese-NicholIs State 
game but as a team McNeese 
amassed just under 500 yards in 
total offense on the evening. Up 
until this past week McNeese had 
the number 1 and 3 leading rusher* 
in the Southland Conference in 

quarterback Stephen Starring (190 
yds in two games) and Theron 
McClendon with 167 yds. Starring 
is also the SLC leader in total of- 
fense with a average of 175.5 yards 
per game. Stump on the other hand 
has made 4-6 field goals and scored 
14 points while pacing the league in 
both place kicking and scoring. 
He's also second in the league in 
punting with a 41 .0 average. 

Defensively the Cowboys are led 
by Burckel with 19 tackles Guilbeau 
with 21, Carrol 20, and Cryer and 
Smith with 15 apiece. 

In their first two games McNeese 
has knocked off a pair of the pre- 
season picks to be first in their 
conference by beating Toledo the 
supposed kingpin of the Mid- 
American conference and West 
Texas State 

Last week West Texas defeated a 
strong Oklahoma State team of the 
Big Eight conference 20-19.

The 1980 version of the Nor- 
thwestern State University Demon 
football team is perhaps the most 
awesome squad fielded by this 
university in over a decade. Rolling 
up hundreds of yards on offense 
and putting tons of points on the 
board is nothing for this offensive 

Yes, they have been quite im- 
pressive in their first few outings. 
And they have been an exciting 
show for the home folks, what few 
have been there. And that's where 
there seems to be some sort of 

The Demons perform their 
amazing football acrobatics at home 
in the lucious confines of Harry 
"Rags" Turpin Stadium. The $4.8 
million stadium is the finest small 
college stadium in the state and 
according to some "the finest 
football complex in the South." 

The Demons used the partially 
completed stadium during the 1976 
season after having played all 1 1 of 
their games on the road during the 
previous season. In five contests, 
the Demons won four. Among the 
four wins was a chilling 7-3 win over 
the Ragin' Cajuns of USL, who 
happened to be undefeated on the 
field at the time (they had to forfeit 
two of their earlier contests), in 
rainy 28 degree weather. 

The Demons came back in 1977, 
the year the stadium was dedicated, 
to again take four of five contests at 
home. Included among the wins 
was a 28-24 stadium-dedication 
game over the University of Texas- 
Arlington. In the game, the Demons 
came back from a 24-7 deficit to 
whip the Mavs behind the surprising 
passing of a dimunitive 
sophomomore quarterback, Kenny 

The Demons were again suc- 
cessful in 1978 and 1979 at home 
finishing those two seasons 4-1 and 
2-1. If more games could have been 
played at home during the 1979 
campaign, the Demons probably 
would have had a more impressive 
record than the 3-6 record they 
posted. But it seems two "big- 
shot" schools who were scheduled 
to play us here decided we weren't 
"big" enough for them. USL and 
Arkansas State both want to be 
considered major college football 
teams, so they don't have time for 
"small college trash" like good old 
NSU. It seems funny to me that 
we're not good enough for those 
schools, although in 70 games 
against USL we closed out the series 
with a 33-34-3 record. That's 
neither here nor there though, as 
they added such powers as Fresno 
State and Northern Illinois or some 
other similarly super-tough team to 
their schedules. 

Anyway the Demons entered this 
season with a home record of 14-4 
since 1976. The Demons promptly 
play their first two opponents at 
home, blow by them with a well- 
balanced attack.record at home: 16- 
4. That's not bad! 

You'd figure the fans would be 
thrilled, right? Wrong! Well, at 
least partially wrong. The few that 
managed to show up really enjoyed 
the games. But the crowds for the 
Demons first two home games have 
come to the stadium, as some great 
sports personality once said, 
"dressed as empty seats." In their 
first two outings, the Demons drew 
approximately 15,000 fans to 
Turpin Stadium. Hey folks, do you 
realize that the stadium holds 
16,000? It's sad to say, but in two 
ballgames, we couldn't have filled 
the stadium once. Why not? I 
mean, what is the problem? 

One problem seems to be a 
general lack of interest among the 
student body. The students' side of 
the stadium has been nowhere near 
full for either of the two contests. I 
realize we only have 2,500 to 3,000 
students on the Natchitoches- 
campus of NSU, but I'd venture to 
say that less than 50 per cent have 
turned out. And the ones that do 
show up usually sit on their hands 
and act like they have never been to 
a football game in their lives. At 
LSU, they call Tiger Stadium 
"Death Valley," mainly because of 
the noise level of the student body. 
Perhaps they could start calling 
Turpin Stadium "Dead Valley" or 
even "Deaf Valley" because of the 
lack of enough volume from the 

On the pressbox side of the 
stadium, things aren't much better 
as the reserved seats are never 
completely filled, and the poor, 
lonely upper deck (where probably 
the best seats in the stadium are) is 
frequently barren. 

There is definitely a lack of in- 
terest or something that is keeping 
the fans away. Since the stadium 
opened, the largest crowd to ever 
attend a Demon game was the 
record 12,989 (est.) that turned out 
to" see the Northeast game last 
season, still some 3,000 short of 


Some would say that because 
we're in a small town and because 
we're a small school that we just 
can't draw. I don't believe that. 
We field a good product at home. 
Perhaps it could just be marketed a 
little better. 

USL and McNeese both used 
extensive advertising campaigns 
during the spring and summer to get 
interest aroused in their com- 
munities for the 1980 season. Both 
of those schools average 15-20,000 
fans per game. 

Agreed our community is not 
as big as theirs, but how about 
Shreveport and Alexandria. Neither 
of those communities has college 
football. Perhaps a little media blitz 
would get a few football fans from 
those areas into the stadium. 

Also, we could try to build a radio 
network like Tech and get 10 or 12 
stations on the hookup, with KDBH 
as the mothership. Right now, 
noone outside a 25 mile radius of 
Natchitoches can hear Northwestern 
football. A network might build 
fan interest across Northwest 
Louisiana, and make Demon fans 
out of formerly disinterested third 

Who knows? Maybe we can pack 
the stadium with crazed Demon fans 
someday. Personally, I would love 
it. In the meantime, let's don't 
forget that the Demons will be on 
the road for two more weeks against 
McNeese and Northeast. Then it's 
home on Oct. 1 1 against New York 
Tech. Let's turn out in force and 
show those Yankees how we ap- 
preciate good old Southern football. 
It's a good show and it saves gas 
staying here for an entertaining 
weekend rather than going home or 
elsewhere for a good time. 
Remember all home games start a 7 
p.m. this season, except for the 
homecoming game against Nicholls 
on Nov. 8, which is a 2 p.m. contest. 

Hope to see you there!

Predictors Go 10-0, Sell Secrets To Mystery Man 

Late Sunday evening as our 
special team of Current Sauce 
accountants were finishing 
tabulating the results of the previous 
weeks games an anonymous phone 
call from somewhere in New York 
came in through the Current Sauce 
hotline for Sports Editor Joe 
Cunningham and Business Manager 
David Stamey. Although no names 
were given it was apparent that the 
caller was at least middle-aged and 
had a distinct "Greek" accent. 

The purpose of his call was as he 
said to just share some "trade 
secrets" on forecasting games. It 
seems as though this person found 
out that Cunningham and Stamey 
had missed only one game apiece in 
their previous twenty predictions for 
a .950% accuracy, and a 10-0 record 
for this weeks games. Both Cun- 
ningham and Stamey were offered 
in excess of a dollar and a half for 
secrets on predicting games. Stamey 
immediately sold out and said that 

History of Demon Football 

As World War II began, Harry 
Turpin's troops had a tough act to 
follow. Coming off in 1939's 11-0 
record, the Demons posted a very 
good 6-3-1 record in 1940. Among 
the wins was a 47-0 shellacking of 
the Southeastern Lions and a 9-6 
win over Mississippi Southern. The 
Demons worst loss of the season 
was an embarrassing 47-0 loss to 
then-powerhouse Tulane. 

The Demons came back to post 4- 
3-1 and 6-2 records in 1941 and 
1942. The '41 season was marked by 
low offensive stats and another 
strong Turpin defense. Nor- 
thwestern scored only 71 points on 
the year, 44 of those coming in one 
game against Delta State. The 
defense, on the other hand, allowed 
just 49 points, shutting out three 
opponents and allowing three others 
to score just six points apiece. 

In 1942, the Demons again used a 
strong defense to post a winning 
record, alowing only 71 points on 
the year, 40 of those by the Bengals 
from Baton Rouge. Among the 
Demons six wins was a 68-0 shelling 
of the troops from Camp 

The 1943 version of the Demons 
never made it to the field as the team 
was disbanded. At the height of 
WW II, young men were in short 
supply and the country was con- 
centrating on the war effort. 

The later war years, 1944 and 
1945, were marked by makeshift 
schedules against service teams and 

local schools. Among their op- 
ponents in those years were teams 
from Fort Polk, Selman FieldAFB, 
Barksdale AFB, and a Marine 
Raider squad. Northwestern 
finished 2-4 against those service 
teams in those two years. 

The Demons also played La. Tech 
four times in those two seasons, 
losing three and tying one. The 
final records for those two seasons 
were 2-4-1 in '44 and 2-6-1 in '45. 
Among the losses in 1945 was a 54-0 
drubbing by the Mississippi State 
Bulldogs of the SEC. 

The post-war years were 
rebuilding years for Northwestern, 
as well as most other college teams. 
College football in the late 1940's 
was more akin to semi-pro football 
with the sudden influx of men 
returning from the war. Instead of 
being contests between young men 
in their late teens and early twenties, 
college football was played by men 
in their middle and late twenties, 
men of maturity and size who had 
already been through many real 

NSC won eight of 19 contests in 
1946 and 1947 finishing 4-6 and 4-5. 
In '46, the Demons shelled Ouachita 
47-14 and Louisiana College 40-0, 
while losing to such teams as La. 
Tech, Miss. State, and the 
University of Arkansas. NSC 
stayed suprisingly close to the 
Razorbacks, losing by the narrow 
margin of 21-14. 

The Demons weren't so fortunate 

against the Hogs as they opened the 

1947 season with one of the worst 
losses in Northwestern football 
history-64-0. Although being 
shutout four times during the year, 
NSC managed to score enough 
points to pick up four wins. 

The Northwestern gridders 
returned to their winning ways to 
close out the decade posting a 5-3-1 
record in 1948 and 5-4 in 1949. The 

1948 squad held four of their first 
five opponents scoreless, giving up 
just 94 points in nine games, while 
amassing 209 tallies. The 1949 
squad was a little more generous, 
allowing 201 points while scoring 

Against state rivals during the 
decade the Demons had their 
problems, defeating Southwestern 
just twice and managing only a 
single win against the Techsters. 
Louisiana College was a sure win 
for the Demons in the Forties as 
Northwestern won six of seven 
contests and tying the other. 

the way that he predicts games was 
simple. He just picked the teams 
with the prettiest jerseys. However 
Cunningham went about it more 
scientifically. It seems as though he 
collects roaches that his Orkin man 
missed in the previous weeks ex- 
terminations. He grabs the little 
bugs and paints their backs with the 
team colors of the teams that will 
play in the forthcoming week. 
Whichever roach kills the other in a 
fight to the death is the official 
winner in the predicting for the 
football games. When the Greek 
caller finally consented to Cun- 
ningham's demand for at least a 
dollar seventy-five for the secret he 
sold out to. 

Also going 10-0 for the week were 
guest selector Buddy Wood and 
faculty member Dr. Ray 
Baumgardner who was very vocal 
on his dispute of the bug theory. 

Sauce assistant Sports Editor Mike 
Gallien continued to trail the leaders 
by missing the only two games that 
were missed by the staff, Buffalo's 
win over New Orleans and Notre 
Dame's win over Michigan. 

This week's guest selector will be 
Wendy Cox, last year's 
homecoming queen and noted 
authority on college football. 
Contrary to rumor the selection of 
Cox was not just to add another 
pretty face to the four that were 
already there, but more of a 
political move. Several agents of 
NOW ( National Organization of 
Women) stormed into the SAUCE 
offices Wednesday and tied Stamey 
up to the light fixtures and 
threatened to expose several 
heretofore unmentioned and highly 
secretive facts about his personal 
life if a female was not added to the 
predictions staff.

Senator Elections 
Held Last Week 

Student Government Association 
Class Senatorial elections were held 
last week, and after a suprisingly 
light voter turn-out, eight new class 
senators nave been elected. 

The Senior Class Senators are 
Melaney Mydland and Melinda 
Palmore. Junior Class Senators are 
Kevin Bartholomew and Pam Deen. 
Sophomore Class Senators are 
Alison Breazeale and Russell 
Williams. Freshman Class Senators 
are Harlan Harvey and Allison 

The first ballot was held last 
Monday with only Ms. Mydland, 
Bartholomew, Harvey and Ms. 
Arthur being elected on the first 

Tallies for the first ballot are as 
follows for the Senior class: 
Melaney Mydland - 125; Melinda 
Palmore - 103; and Bobby Johnson 

Junior class tallies for the first 
ballot is as follows: Kevin Bar- 
tholomew - 100; Larry Hall - 69; 
Pam Deen - 67; Wanda Anthony - 
46; and David Martin - 27. 

For Sophomore class: Russell 
Williams - 55; Alison Breazeale - 48; 
Don Bowdon - 51; Teresa Sullivan - 
18; Dianna Kemp- 28, Susanne 
Crawford - 37; David Collier - 24, 
Helene Morgan - 38; Melody Sprawl 
- 19; and Sherri Reeves - 53. 

Freshman tallies are: Harlan 
Harvey - 93; Allison Arthur - 85; 
Stacy Maddox - 25; Beth Richard - 

30; Clare Campbell - 23; Teresa 
Peterson - 43; Lisa Larrimer - 8, 
Steve Leeder - 19; and Bill Baily - 

Senior class runoffs were between 
Melinda Palmore and Bobby 
Johnson. Junior class runoffs were 
between Pam Deen and Larry Hall. 
Sophomore class runoffs were 
between Alison Breazeale, Russell 
Williams, Sherri Reeves and Don 
Bowdon. There were no Freshman 
runoffs since Harvey and Ms. Arth- 
ur took the elections on the first 

The runoff elections, which were 
held Friday at the main campus and 
yesterday at ADOS and 
Warrington, also had a very light 
voter turnout. 

Melinda Palmore won the Senior 
class runoff with 79 votes to Bobby 
Johnson's 48. In the Junior class, 
Pam Deen took it with 61 votes to 
Larry Hall's 43. It was a very close 
race in the Sophomore elections 
with Alison Breazeale with 56 votes 
and Russell Williams with 59 votes 
taking the two senator's seats as 
compared to Don Bowdon's 52 and 
Sherri Reeves' 50 votes. 

According to Mark Manuel, 
Commissioner of Elections, voter 
turnout was extremely light, even 
for a normally conservative NSU. 

Next elections will be the State 
Fair elections which will be held on 
Octm 8. A proposed amendment to 
the NSU constitution will also be 
voted on in the next election. 

Demons Slated For TV 

Northwestern's Demons will get a 
chance to show their football 
prowess on something other than 
the football field in Monroe 
Saturday as NSU will be on regional 
television in its game against 
Northeast Louisiana University. 

The game will be broadcast on a 
regional basis by ABC, with kickoff 
time slated at 12:50 p.m. CDT. 

NSU head coach and athletic 
directorA.L. Williams, said the 
decision to put the NSU— NLU 
contest on television should be a big 
plus for the Demon program. 

"We think it is just super to be on 
television," Williams said Monday 

morning. "It is a great opportunity 
for Northwestern and we are excited 
about the whole thing." 

The game was originally planned 
for 7:30 p.m., but the television 
broadcast has pushed kickoff time 
up so that the game can be televised. 

Northwestern will bring a perfect 
4-0 record into the game and held a 
No. 9 ranking in the Division 1-AA 
rankings before upsetting previously 
unbeaten McNeese State Saturday 
night in Lake Charles. 

Northeast, on the other hand, is 
coming off a 24-0 win over USL 
which upped their record to 2-1 . 

See SAUCE sports for more 
information about the game. 

Eddie Money Out, Michael Murphy In 

Eddie Money will not be here Oct. 
21, as it was reported last week in 
the Sauce. Due to removations in 
the Coliseum, which prevents any 
large concerts until December, 
Eddie Money, the first choice of the 
committee, and Pure Prairie 
League, the second choice will not 
be able to perform here. The 
committee voted to book Michael 
Murphy, for Oct. 8, at a cost of 
$2500, which is well within the 
budget and allows room for other 
"coffeehouse acts," which will be 
put on until the Coliseum is 
renovated for the larger concerts. 

Gym, or the P.E. Majors gym. 

The committee discussed the idea 
of holding two or three more of the 
coffeehouse acts. "We want a 
progressive country, a soul, and a 
rock V roll," said Bill Corry, 
committee chairman. This selection 
would enable all NSU students to 
hear the kind of music they want. 
Corry is to attend the SUGB 
conference, the NECAA, in Tulsa, 
and will preview acts for per- 
formance at college campuses. 
With money from the budget used 
as a bidding power, Corry will be 
able to put in a bid early enough for 
some of the better acts. 

The place for Murphy to perform ^Corry estimates there may be as 
is still being decided by the com-\ many as three more small acts and 

mittee. Suggested places include the 
Student Union Ballroom, the 
Iberville Cafeteria, the Old Men's 

Michael Murphy 

then the large Christmas Lights 
Concert, which will definitely be 
held Dec. 6. Three groups were 
discussed for the Christmas con- 
cert. Atlanta Rhythm Section, Hall 
and Oates, and Pablo Cruise, who 
were narrowed down from the last 
meeting. Nominations are still open 
for other groups to perform, but 
time is running short and 
preparations must be stated. 

A package deal of Hall and Oates 
and Larry Graham was discussed, 
and the availability of this will be 
discussed at the next meeting. 

The committee meets again 
Thursday, Oct. 2, at 6 p.m. in the 
Committee Office. All those who 
have signed up are reminded that 
you must not miss more than three 
meetings, and those who would like 
to join the committee are reminded 
that the cut-off date for joining is 
fast approaching. See the SUGB 
office for applications.

Lab Sch ool Named 
In Desegregation Suit 

By David LaVere 
Sauce Editor 

The NSU Middle Lab School has 
been named in a suit against the 
Natchitoches Parish Board as one of 
14 parish schools that is operating 
under a dual school system. The 
suit maintains that the schools are 
wholly or predominantly one race. 

The desegregation suit was filed 
by residents of the Gorum area 
against the school board after the 
ooard voted to close the Gorum 

Actually, the suit stems from the 
recent desegregation rulings in the 
Alexandria area made by U.S. 
District Judge Nauman Scott. Scott 
had informed Superintendent of the 
Natchitoches Parish School Board, 
Levi Thompson, that he was not to 
allow any students from Rapides 
Parish to attend school in Nat- 
chitoches Parish for 1980-81. At 
this time, most of the Rapides 
Parish students that went to school 
in Natchitoches Parish were at- 
tending the Gorum school. 

With about 20 Rapides Parish 
students removed from the Gorum 
school, it left 57 students in the high 
school, which the school board felt 
was too low. The Gorum High 
School was closed and the students 
transferred to Provencal or 
Cloutierville School. The 
elementary and junior high schools 
are still open. 

In response to the school closing, 
residents in Gorum hired 
Alexandria attorney, Louis Berry, 
to file a desegregation suit against 
the school board, claiming that 
several schools in the parish were 
either predominantly white or 
black, thereby operating under a 
dual school system. 

Schools named in the suit are: 
Gorum High School, Marthaville, 
Allen, Clarence, Natchez, St. 
Matthews, North Natchitoches 
Elementary, NSU Middle Lab 
School, Provencal, Robeline, 
Fairview-Alpha, M.R. Weaver, 
Ashland, and Goldonna. The suit 
maintains that these schools are 
predominantly one color. The 
Marthaville school is mostly white, 
while the Allen school, not far from 
Marthaville, is mostly black. 

The suit also maintains that 
pupils, teachers and principals were 
assigned to these schools on a basis 
of race. 

Thompson, does not know why 
the NSU Middle Lab School was 
named in suit, since the suit is 
against the school board and the 
Middle Lab School does not come 
under the school board jurisdiction. 
"The School board has a good 
relation with the Lab School, but we 
have no jurisdiction over it," said 
Thompson. "The Board activity 
concerned with the Lab School is 
when teachers are employed, they 
must be approved by the school 
board first." 

According to attorney Berry, the 
reason the Middle Lab School was 
mentioned in the suit is that it is 
predominantly one race. He did 
state that if the Middle Lab School 
did not come under the jurisdiction 
of the school board, the Lab School 

could be dropped from the suit. "It 
all depends if the school board is 
putting funds into it and has control 
over the school," said Berry. "It is 
all a matter of control. There is no 
suit against the Lab School as such. 
It is against the school board." 

NSU's Dean of Education, 
Robert Alost claims that the Middle 
Lab School is not under the school 
board, but is under the jurisdiction 
of NSU. In fact, the Lab School ' is 
already operating under a 1972 
desegregation order issued by U.S. 
District Judge Ben C. Dawkins of 
Shreveport, which maintains that 
the Lab Schools must have 30 
percent black at the school. "We 

have 30 percent and have been 
active under the 1972 order for some 
time," explained Alost. "A written 
explanation has been sent to Judge 
Scott. I presume he'll take care of 

According to Jimmy Berry, 
principal of the NSU Middle Lab 
School, the school presently has 190 
regular students, and "has a little 
over 30 percent" black students in 
them. The Middle Lab School has 
an enrollment of 68 white males, 30 
black males, 62 white females, and 
28 black females, and 2 oriental 
males. The school also has 20 
students of different class, with ages 
ranging from two to 24. 

Cecil Knotts Resigns 
From Student Services 

"I have resigned my office ef- 
fective Oct. 3." This was Cecil 
Knotts statement to the Current 
Sauce about his resignation. Knotts 
repied, "I have the opportunity to 
take employment with a local firm 
which I feel would offer a better 

Knotts stresses, "I have no hard 
feelings toward the University, it 
has been extremely good to me. It's 
a good job, and it is very rewarding, 
but everybody at some point in their 
career, if the opportunity arises, 
gets an offer he thinks is better and 
he'll make that change." 

Knotts who is head of Student 
Services, said that it was a pleasure 
to work for the university, and he 
has a lot of friends here and he plans 
to back the university one hundred 

Student Services, controls all 
student activities , as well as the 
Dormitories, and food services. 
The money used in these areas come 
from students who live on campus. 
There is no state money involved. 

Knotts said that they didn't have 
money in the past, and they were 
expectng money in a Capitol Outlay 
Bill, but the bill did not pass. 
Student Services has now asked for 
permission to buy new grills and 
ovens, for Iberville Dining Hall. 

The Outlay bill would have 
provided for $260,000 but as it is 
they will only get $35,000 to buy the 
new equipment. Knotts said "There 
is no money coming in, but the cost 
to run everything goes up." 

As for fixing broken, or rundown 
equipment in the dorm, Knotts said 
that most of the equipment has been 
fixed many times and it needs to be 
replaced. Knotts also said, "The 
maintenence people have a heavy 
work load, and not enough time to 
get everything done. But they know 
their prorities and its frustrating to 
me and to them when things keep 
breaking down." 

As for IbervilleDiningHall Knotts 
said they have done a good job of 
trying to put a little variety in a very 
bland and dull space. The dining 
hall was built when everything was 
institutionalized, and that is the type 

of atmoshpere the building has now. 

"I wish we had the money to 
renovate," replied Knotts. 

Changes could come about soon 
in Iberville, that is when the new 
Food Service Advisory Committee 
gets started. It is still in the plan- 
ning stages in Dean of Students, 
Fred Bosarge's office. It would call 
for some type of students 
representation on a regular basis to 
arrange special activities and 

"The food service people here 
want to take care of complaints, 
they know its tough to feed 1400 
people a day." Knotts feels that 
SAGA is very flexible until it comes 
to money and then they need some 
kind of support. They are willing to 
help the students. 

Students don't know where to go 
to complain and the committee 
would be set up for this purpose. 

Knotts ended by saying, "It has 
been a pleasure to work here, and 
working with the students was an 
enjoyable experience. 

Knotts became the director of 
Student Services in 1975 after 
receiving his Masters Degree from 
here. He also received his grade 
school, high school and un- 
dergraduate training from the NSU

SUGB Schedules Concert 

Michael Murphy and his band 
have been chosen by the Student 
Union Governing Board to appear 
in concert, Tuesday, Oct. 7, at a yet 
undecided place on campus, it was 
announced at last week's SUGB 

Murphy was picked over first- 
chosen Eddie Money, since the 
Eddie Money concert would have to 
be held in the Coliseum because of 
its size, and the Coliseum is still 
under renovation. But according to 
Bill Corry, Chairman of the Concert 
Committee, the Oct. 7 date for the 
Murphy appearance is still uncertain 
since the singer has not accepted the 
date yet. 

Murphy only chages $2500 for the 
show, but this does not include 
sound and lights. The only problem 
the SUGB has is trying to figure out 
where the concert will be held. 

Because the renovations of 
Prather Coliseum will not be ready 
for the concert, the concert can't be 
there. The Student Union Ballroom 
is considered to be too hot, and 
Iberville Dining Hall, which would 
hold more people, is considered to 
be too hot also. Other possibilities 
are the Old Men's Gym or the P.E. 
Major's Building. 

A deadline for entries into the 
Lady of the Bracelet pageant has 

been set for Oct. 9. The LOB 
Acceptance Tea will be held in the 
Cane River Room Tuesday, Oct. 14, 
at 4 p. m. A decision has not been 
made on the theme of the pageant. 
But because of renovations at A. A. 
Fredericks Fine Art Building and 
Prather Coliseum, scheduling a 
place for the Nov. 14th pageant may 
prove to be difficult. 

The SUGB is planning for Tech 
Weekend, and the events of the 
week before. One possibility is a 
Western Saloon Night, everyone 
would have to have on some kind of 
western outfit, even if it is just blue 
jeans, and there would be gambling, 
and drinks of some kind. 

Bands for the Homecoming dance 
were also discusded, with not 
decision as of yet. "We the People" 
from Lafayette, seemed to be well 
liked, along with "Champagne", 
"Crimson", Sammy Hawthorn, 
and the "Gator Band". 

Bob Wilson spoke on conditions 
at the Rec. Complex, and said the 
Army worms were bad and almost 
ae the green's for the golf course. 
He also spoke on when they should 
close the swimming pool, he 
commented that five life guards for 
four people wasn't getting it. It was 
decided to close the pool Oct. 1 .

Lee Addresses SGA 

"Despite best efforts you can't 
prevent unique and bad incidents 
from happening." This was Chief 
James Lee of University Police 
commenting about some of the 
problems of the NSU has faced in 
the last couple of weeks. 

Those problems being the 
alleged rape, and the dark areas

that are currently being cleared up. 

Lee spoke about the University 
Police staff at last Monday's SGA 
meeting and said, "We are the 
lowest staffed University Police in 
the state." 

President Rene Bienvenu was also 
on hand for the meeting and fielded 
questions from the SGA. A 
decision has been made on the 
problem with burned out lights, and 
areas where lights are needed. The 
decision would mean that daily 
reports would be turned in to the 
power plant through the SGA, and 
the SGA suggestion box in the 
Student Union, and Iberville Dining 

Bienvenu stated, "I drove 
through the campus the other day 
and checked all the 'danger zones' 
and I saw two girls jogging on the 
road by the TEC, I wanted to ring 
their necks." 

He then said that the university 
has already replaced some lights, 
and more police patrols are out and 

Someone brought up the problem 
of male students hanging around in 
front of some of the female dorms. 
Bienvenu replied, "I don't care who 
they are, what they are, and what 
they are doing. I won't put up with 
that. We need students but not that 

The cricket population on campus 
has gotten decidely worse, and 
Bienvenu stated that they are 
causing problems. 

Chief Lee stated that the SGA is 
fortunate because they com- 
municate well with the ad- 
ministration, and they recognize 
problems before they become a 
major issue. 

The SGA is currently making 
plans for an Escort Service that the 
University Police would institute. 
The service would provide the girls 
in any dorm with a University 
Policeman to walk them from their 
dorm to anywhere on campus. 

Another possibility would be for 
the university to hire Night Walkers 
to ass ist girls to their dorm. 

Helen Morgan sponsored Bill no. 
10 which was passed at last weeks 
SGA meeting. The bill reads; 

Whereas, the safety of NSU 
female students is currently in 
jeopardy, and, Whereas, it may be 
sometime before adequate safety 
measures are taken, Therefore Be It 
Resolved, that the NSU Student 
Government Association begin a 
safety awareness campaign for 
female students, consisting of the 
following elements: 1. that the 
chairman of the student services 
committee appoint an ad hoc 
committee effective immediately to 
begin the safety campaign and, 2. 
that the committee begin im- 
mediately to inform female students 
of safety measures on the NSU 
campus and, 3. that the NSU SGA 
request that a secion of Orientation 
101 be devoted to rape awareness on 
the NSU campus.

Campaign Costs Disclosed 

In a part of the country that is 
notorious for spending huge sums 
of money durng elections, it appears 
that the same practice has hit 

In last weeks Student Govern- 
ment Association's Class Senatorial 
elections, several candidates spend 
what could be considered large 
amounts of money. After in- 
terviewing several candidates, it 
seems that newly-elected freshman 
senator, Harlan Harvey, 1-1, 
majoring in Public Relations, was 
the top spender with $130. 

Harvey's expenditure break- 
down is as follows: $60 for the 
printing of 1000 cards with his 
name, picture, and slogan on them; 
$40 for paint; and $30 for 
miscellanious (Tape, thumbtacks, 
etc.) According to Harvey, his 
parents did assist him with the 
campaign expenses by paying ap- 
proximately $65 for the printing 
costs and some miscellanious costs. 

Harvey was elected on the first 
ballot last week with 93 votes. 
Asked if he thought the amount of 
money he spent actually contributed 
to his getting elected, Harvey 
replied, "Oh definitely. I just 
wanted to get my name before the 
people." Harvey did state that he 
felt that if hadn't spent so much 
money, he wouldn't have gotten 

Other big spenders in the cam- 
paign were Allison Arthur, newly- 
elected freshman senator who was 
also elected on the first ballot, with 
85 votes who spent $125, and Sherri 
Reeves, who faced a runoff for 
sohpomore senator, spent $50. 

Ms. Arthur's expenditures broke 
down to be about the same as 
Harvey's. Both she and Harvey had 
campaign cards and large, well- 
designed posters. "I wanted to get 
my picture on something," ex- 
plained Ms. Arthur. "They can 
relate your face to your name." 

Ms. Arthur was also assisted by her 
parents with some expenditures. 

Ms. Reeves, majoring in Public 
Relations, broke down her cam- 
paign expenditures as follows; $30 
for printed cards; $10 for paint; $5 
for hand-out cards; and $5 for 
miscellaneous. According to Ms. 
Reeves, all the money she spent was 
her own. 

At the other end of the spectrum 
was Melaney Mydland, who was 
elected as Senior Class Senator on 
the first ballot with 125 votes. 
According to Ms. Mydland, she 
spent no money on her campaign, 
but still was elected on the first 
ballot. She campaigned by word-of- 
mouth and did not even put up any 
posters. "I don't think that juniors 
or seniors really need to put up 
many posters," explained Ms. 
Mydland. "Most juniors and 
seniors already know the can- 

Most candidates seemed to feel 
this way, Freshman and 
Sophomores, being new to the 
campus, would have to campaign 
harder to get their face known, 
while junior and senior candidates 
could rely mainly on already being 
known by their peers. 

Of course, there were many 
candidates that spent little or no 
money, and did not get elected. 

Asked about the amount of 
money spent in the campaign, Mark 
Manuel, Commission of Elections, 
replied, "If they want it that bad 
and want to go to that extent, more 
power to them I myself wouldn't 
spend one hundred dollars for a 
school office." Asked if the large 
amount of money spent by some 
candidates helped then get elected, 
Manuel replied, "No doubt about 
it. If they've seen your face, but 
don't know you or any one else, 
they're going to pull that lever for 

Amendment Proposed 

An amendment to the Nor- 
thwestern constitution has been 
proposed by Cliff Lopez, president 
of the Student Government 

According to Lopez, the 
amendment proposes to establish a 
seat on the SGA for the president of 
ADOS Council which is in 
Shreveport. "The ADOS campus 
revised their constitution and it was 
accepted by the Board of Trustees," 
said Lopez. "ADOS now pays the 
same fees that the Warrington 
campus pays, they are therefore 
entitled to representation in the 

Lopez stated that the ADOS 
Council has the same make-up as 
the Warrington Council, "which 
provides for the president of the 
council to have a seat on the SGA," 
said Lopez. 

Because it is an amendment to the 
NSU constitution, it must come 
before a vote of the NSU student 

body, said Lopez. Students will 
vote on the issue at the State Fair 
elections on Oct. 8. 

The amendment reads, "Section 
1: CI. 2. A council shall be 
established to represent the A. D. 
Campus of Nursing, and this 
council shall be named the ADOS 
Council. The council shall deter- 
mine its by-laws under the Senate 
direction to be effective August 27. 

"Section 2: CI. 2. A senate seat 
shall be established to be effective 
on August 27, to represent the 
ADOS campus, and shall be filled 
according to the ADOS Campus 
Council By-laws." 

If the amendment does not pass 
the student body, the ADOS 
Council will not be represented on. 
the SGA. "But that would be rather 
unconstitutional," said Lopez. 
"They would be paying the fees but 
would not have a voice in the 
government. Kind of a taxation 
without representation." 

Rhodes Named Controller 

Northwestern's new Controller, 
Tommy Rhodes, has plans to make 
the operation of his office more 
efficient through increased use of 
computerization. He feels that this 
will greatly increase the capabilities 
of his office, which operates on an 
almost entirely manual system. 

Rhodes is a certified public ac- 
countant and holds a Bachelor of 
Business Administration with an 
emphasis in accounting from Sam 
Houston State University in 
Huntsville, TX. He comes to 
Northwestern from the 
Trans/ Alaska pipeline, where he 
was a supervisor of accountants. 
Previous to that, he worked for a 

As Controller, he is responsible 

for maintaining fiscal controls, 
making all payments, and budgeting 
university funds. He also supervises 
thriteen employees in the con- 
troller's and Cashier's office. 
Among the duties of his offices are 
processing purchase orders, 
collecting cash at registration, loan 
collections, administrering grant 
accounts, monthly reports to 
various state agencies, and issuing 
the faculty and staff payrolls. 

Rhodes realizes that the Con- 
troller's Office has come under fire 
for not getting checks out by the 
anticipated dates, but, he feels that 
development of a more efficient 
system and increased use of com- 
puters will aleviate this problem.

Orientation Class To Include 
Rape Awareness Program 

At Friday's Presidential Advisory 
council Meeting Dr. Rene Bievenu 
informed Mrs. Barbara Gillis 
Director of Orientation to work up 
a Rape Awareness section of her 
Orientation 101 class. 

Ms. Gillis got together with Dr. 
Robert Lee from counseling and 
testing and worked out a program 
that is being used in Orientation 

So pay attention this list might 
come in handy some day. 
1. Make your home as safe as 
possible; locks, windows, and doors 
should be in good working con- 
dition. If you move to a new 
apartment or home, change the 
locks. The Crime Prevention Unit 
of the local police can give advice on 
making the residence burglar-proof- 
-and thus rape proof. 

2. If you live alone:

impresion of more than one oc-

(call loudly, "I'll get the door,

3. In general, be aloof to 
strangers and never open the door to 
a stranger. Always ask for iden- 
tification from a delivery or service

not open the door to a stranger. 

4. If you live in an apartment 
house, do not enter or remain alone 
in a deserted basement, garage, or 
laundry room.

telephone call, say nothing but hang 
up immediately and report the call 
to the police. 

6. Avoid being alone on the 
streets or on a university campus 
late at night. However, if necessary, 
carry in your hand a "practical" 
weapon, such as a lighted cigarette, 
a hat pin, a plastic lemon, an 
umbrella, a pen, a kitchen fork, key 
chain, a hair brush or comb (to slash 
across his face), or a police whistle 
(not tied around the neck, but on a 
key chain). 

7. Do not hitchhike. (Everyone 
agrees that this is primary!) If 
absolutely necessary, go in groups 
and only in heavy traffic. 

8. If you drive a car: 

a. Be sure your gas tank is never 
below one-quarter full; 

b. always lock your car when you 

c. check back seat and floor 
before getting into a car; 

d. if you have car trouble, do not 
accept help from a man or group of 
men; instead, lift the hood, and wait 
inside the locked car for the police 
to come. 

9. Be wary of picking up strange 
men in bars, particularly if you have 
been drinking heavily or using 

10. Do not ride the elevators 
alone with a man. Either get off 
immediately or stand by the control 

11. On a date, communicate your 
limits of sexual activity early so that 
no misunderstandings occur later. 

12. Babysitters should check on 
the family's reputation before 
taking the job. Parents should be 
very careful in the selection of a 

13. If you are attacked, do not 
cry "rape," cry "fire!" 

In a Building 

1. Allways have key in hand 
before you reach entrance. 

2. Avoid deserted areas within 
buildings when alone-stairways, 
laundry, trash, and storage areas. 

3. Avoid or use caution when 
getting into elevator with stranger- 
In elevator stand near control 
button and push for main floor or 
emergency if concerned. 

4. Don't overload yourself with 
bundles-Be prepared to drop them 
quickly if being followed. 

5. If you think you're being 
watched when leaving apartment, 
shout to mythical companion, 
"Take the cake out in ten minutes, 

6. If apartment seems to have 
been entered, don't go in yourself. • 

7. This may sound silly, but if 
accosted, yell "fire," not "help"-it 
will attract attention quickly. 

On the Street 

1. Whenever possible don't walk 

a. Use buddy system or groups. 

b. Don't shortcut through vacant 
lots or parking lots. 

c. Stay away from doorways and 

d. Walk near curb, facing traffic.

traffic permits, walk down middle 
of street 

2. Talking to strangers— 

a. Be very cautious when stranger 
asks directions or time or offers to 
carry your packages home. 

b. beware of individual who 
claims to have found money and 
wants to share it with you or who 
offers goods at low prices. 

3. Always look and be alert to

the Demons are looking damn good. 
I mean when your Defense can hold 
the Southland Conference 
Champions on the one-yard line 
twice during the game, and your 
Offense can make 451 yards against 
them (451 yards averaged in the last 
four games), then what can you say 
but the Demons are doing fine. 

For me, it was great to see that 
headline in the Shreveport Times 
Sunday Sports Section - "Nor- 
thwestern is still unbeaten." And 
even better, the Demon football 
team will be on regional television 
this coming Saturday when we take 
on the Northeast Indians. 

Unfortunately, the Demons will 
be playing at Northeast, which is as 
the schedule said it would be, 
although there had allegedly been an 
agreement with NLU to have it here 
at Turpin Stadium if the game was 
televised. Oh well, once again, NSU 
gets the shaft. Speaking of shafts, 
I'll bet USL would just dearly love 
to play us again. An inferior team 
they say, ha! 

The scheduled Demon television 
appearance next Saturday can also 
help the university out in the 
financial bind that it is facing to the 
itune of $200,000. TV comes in in 
the nick of time. There is also the 
possibility of us getting two $1000 
.scholarships for the best Offensive 
and Defensive player in the game. 
When the Demons win next week, 
hopefully both will come NSU's 

But back to reality, four wins do 
not a season make, but if NSU can 
• keep doing what they have been 
doing lately, it just might be the year 
for A. L. 

The next home game for the 
Demons will be Oct. 11, the 
weekend after next, when we play 
New York Tech. Hopefully, and 
there should be no reason why it 
shouldn't be, Turpin Stadium will 
be jammed packed. Remember, 
Northwestern and Southeastern are 
the only unbeaten teams left in the 

But speaking of a packed 
stadium, and it should be packed, 
but as a pessimist, I feel that it 
won't be. Students will probably 
stay away in droves. Not because 
they don't have team spirit, or don't 

want to see the Demons win, but as 
everybody knows, NSU students 
just can't stay on campus over a 

I know that there is not much to 
do in Natchitoches, and that drives 
many people home, but I can't 
understand why people leave when 
there is something going on, like a 
football game. Have to get breast- 
fed I guess. 

First of all, if you want to find 
something to do, you must get out 
of the dorms. There are plenty of 
students that live off-campus and 
probably really wouldn't mind you 
coming out of hibernation in the 
dorms and partying with them. The 
off-campus students are probably 
just as bored as yoou, and together, 
you could probably find something. 
If you can't find anything hap- 
pening, then I suggest that you 
make something happen. 

But it all goes back to the old 
complaint of student apathy. But do 
students leave NSU because there is 
nothing to do, or is there nothing to 
do because the students leave. So if 
any of you read this column and you 
do head back to mama or high- 
school friends, please, let me beg 
you to stick around once-in-while. 
With enough of us here, something 
is bound to happen. 

I just finished reading the election 
results and you want to talk about a 
light voter turnout. Out of ap- 
proximately 6,000 students at- 
tending all the NSU campus', there 
have been more than 300-500 that 
turned out. In the runoffs, there was 
only a nine vote difference between 
the top Sophomore candidate, 
Russell Williams, with 59 votes, and 
the bottom vote getter, Sherri 
Reeves, with 50 votes. From all 
three campus', only 217 voted in the 
Sophomore election. One hundred 
four in the Junior election; and 127 
in the Senior election. Who says that 
your vote doesn't count. 

Look, folks, you've got to turn 
out and vote. You've got to get 
involved in something sometime. 
And now is the time. If you can't get 
involved in anything while you are 
at college where involvment is made 
easy, then how can you do it when 
you get out and involvement is 
discouraged. It is no wonder that 
they call us a nation of sheep. 

But if you do want to do 
something, I guess a football game 
is as good as place as any to start. So 
when the Demon team comes home 
week after next. Go on out. See the 
game. Who knows, you might see 
someone you know and have a 
good time. 

Don't Stay Locked Up 

Before beginning this week's 
column, I must take time to express 
my admiration for the Southern 
University students who par- 
ticipated in the protests on the 
campus and at LSU-BR last week. 
The students felt that the band's 
appearance at a campaign ap- 
pearance made by Ronald Reagan at 
LSU would infer black support for 
Reagan's candidacy. They also 
claimed that the band members had 
been coerced into attending because 
they attend college on work-study 

The band appeared by invitation 
of John Cade, top aide to Governor 
David Treen and Reagan's cam- 
paign manager. Dr. Issac Gregg, 
SU band director, contended that, 
as a musician, he would play 
wherever he was invited regardless 
of who the request came from. Of 
course, Dr. Gregg may very well be 
a musician; but, he is also an em- 
ployee of the state of Louisiana. I 
seriously doubt that any state 
employee would refuse an invitation 
sanctioned by the governor. 

It warms the cockles of this old 
radical's heart to see young people 
who will still exercise their right to 
protest. If only my dear readers 
would stand up for anything that 
they believe in. You may well say, 
"what have I got to protest about? 
Well, read on. 

It seems that groups of male 
students have been congregating 
outside of Sabine Dorm in the 
evenings, watching the women go by 
and occasionally making comments. 
At the last meeting of the SGA, Dr. 
Bienvenu stated that the Campus 
Security was going to disperse this 
group. From all observations, that 
is just what they have done. 

Now, before you all start ap- 
plauding the efforts of the officers, 
let's examine this situation. Where 
did they go? Consider, here we have 
these men who can't find any other 
means of recreation besides stan- 
ding around outside of a dorm in a 
clumsy attempt to meet women. 
Now, where have they gone? 

We know that they haven't gone 
to the Student Union, because, 
despite the erroneous impression 

given by the name of this edifice, it 
is actually a series of administrative 
offices and strictly off limits, except 
when "adults" are present. They 
haven't gone to the library, since the 
atmosphere is not conducive to 
meeting people or socializing. They 
are not visiting in each other's 
rooms because the R.A. would 
disperse them to keep down the 
noise, and, again, this is no place to 
meet women. In fact, they have no 
where to go to socialize with their 
friends and meet members of the 
opposite sex. 

T think that we should admit, 
once and for all, that an important 
part of college life is contact on an 
adult level with members of the 
opposite sex. Also, after a day of 
studies, the students need some sort 
of recreation. It would seem that 
the administration will not be 
content until every student on this 
campus locks themselves in their 
rooms after 6:00 and stays there for 
four years. Pardon me, I forgot 
that you should also keep you lights 

off while confined to quarters to 
conserve energy. 

These gentlemen are not the only 
ones who are being coerced into 
their "places." Women on this 
campus are being scared into staying 
in their rooms, for fear of being 
sexually molested. The logic behind 
this tactic for rape prevention is full 
of gaping holes. 

The promoters of national "Take 
Back The Night" campaigns have 
pointed out that these kinds of 
crimes occur because a lone 
assailant meets a lone woman on a 
deserted street. If, however, that 
street is not deserted, but full of 
people whose very presence deters 
this crime, the assailant will go to a 
less populous area. 

Women must walk on the campus 
at night. They cannot lock 
themselves in their rooms and there 
is no reason why they should. 
Americans everywhere are begin- 
ning to realize the mistake that they 
have made by hiding in their homes 
and leaving the streets to the 

criminals. In a town the size of 
Natchitoches, there is no reason to 
institute this regrettable trend that 
only serves to limit the rights of law 
abiding citizens. 

Or is there a reason? If we force 
people to remain in their rooms will 
they realize that they would have no 
decent place to go otherwise? Will 
they ever wonder why they can't get 
in the Student Union on nights and 
weekends? Will they be so 
frustrated with boredom, that they 
race each other to get off the 
campus for the weekend and never 
consider the plight of those who are 
not fortunate enough to escape? 

But, even if this is not the con- 
scious intention of the ad- 
ministration, it is the result and not 
the motive of an action by which it 
must be judged. Decide for 
yourselves. Will you be herded into 
your rooms or will you "take back 
the night" and the school, for that

Thoughts while wondering if 
Gov. Treen cut his son's 
allowance— he should have, he cut 
everything else. 

By today all the votes should be 
counted and we should know who 
makes up the Senate of the Student 
Government Association. Runoff 
voting was yesterday at the two 
Shreveport campuses in the Class 
Senator races and the winners will 
officially take office next week. 

We know who our senators are, 
but we for the most part don't know 
what they want to accomplish this 
year. Of course, chances are that 
the senators don't know what we'd 
like to see done, either— but do we 
even know ourselves% Probably 

Once you really sit down and do 
some wishful thinking on the 
subjuect— put together a "wish 
list"— it's hard to stop. 

At the top of any such list we'd 
have to ask the SGA to ask us. 
Some type of input from the general 
student population is needed, if it be 
in the form of a survey or 
questionairre or whatever. 

SGA Minutes 

SGA President Cliff Lopez could 
instruct his public relations director 
to formulate a plan to get the 
student input. Apparently the 
public relations director — who takes 
instructions from the president and 
senate — so far has had little to do 
besides change the message board in 
front of the Union and publish the 
semi-regular SGA Newsletter. 

It would also be nice to know 
what the SGA— and the Student 
Union Governing Board, too — does 
with the thousands of dollars of 
student fees raked in each semester. 

I'm reasonably sure the SGA and 
SUGB know how the bucks are 
spent, but since it is our money 
they're spending I'd like to see an 
exact accounting of every penny. 

I may be wrong, but I think 
somewhere in the SGA Constitution 
it says each semester the budget of 
the SGA shall be printed in the 
Current Sauce. It it doesn't say 
that, it should. 

Likewise, a financial report of 
expenses should be released each 
month and a complete audit printed 
at the end of each semester. 

Consider how much mone we're 
talking about — about $25,000— and 
it's easy to see why this is so 

There is too much room for 
abuse, not to require accountability. 
I'm not accusing anyone; I know 
for a fact in the past some senators 
have used the SGA telephone for 
long-distance personal calls on a 
regular basis. Little things add up 
into big things. 

This is part of the reason the SGA 
has a credibility gap with the student 
body. Only a small percentage of 
SGA members take advantage of 
the opportunity to get over on the 
system. What's to stop all of the 
from doing it? 

Not much. Not enough, anyway. 
Once the students realize the SGA 

does have a desire to serve them and 
does have a bank account to back it 
up, we might see some concrete 

The least this action would do is 
to stir up interest in SGA and what 
it does. After all, we've got a vested 
interest in it since we provide the 
financial support. 

This year's senate and executives 
have demonstrated a willingness to 
try and improve the SGA. These are 
just suggestions, but they're a start. 

I don't think there is a finish, a 
limit to what the SGA can do. It's 
just a matter of asking, and then 

Well, I'm asking... 

...Just a quick question— has 
anyone checked to see if those ducks 
down by Chaplin's Lake have a 
current NSU ID&

Dear Editor, 

We would like to bring to the 
attention of faculty, staff, and 
student body of the Natchitoches 
campus a major problem playing 
the Warrington campus. That being 
the problem of parking. 

It seems ridiculous that there are 
approximately 300 full time students 
attending this campus with only 95 
parking spaces in which to ac- 
commodate them. 

The problem arises when you 
ha^e only two alternatives. These 
arc parking on the street or parking 
in a vacant lot one block away. Let 
us examine the first alternative. 
There is limited parking on the 
street as only one side of the street is 
used and then it is restricted to two 
hour parking. This leads us to play 
"musical cars" or "beat the clock" 
when you have a three to four hour 
Iecture-which is nearly every day. If 
you fail to beat the clock the penalty 
is a $5.00 parking ticket payable to 
the Shreveport Police Department. 
We are one of the few institutions in 
Shreveport that are privileged to 
have a visit from the Shreveport 
Police Department several times 

every day. 

The second alternative is the site 
of our new school. At first you may 
think that it is the one block walk 
that we find distasteful, when in 
fact, it is the damage done to our 
cars due to an unpaved parking area 
full of pot holes, drop offs, and 
miscellaneous garbage. In adition, 
when it rains the area becomes a 
typical Louisiana swamp land. 

It is the general concensus of this 
student body that it is pointless to 
pay a $10.00 parking fee when there 
is no place to park on the campus 
and then turn around and pay $5.00 
every time you are parked for longer 
than 2 hours on the street. 

We would like to offer two 
suggestions. Either repair or level 
the lot at the site of the new school 
or purchase and level the lot ad- 
jacent to the Warington lot. 

In conclusion we would like to 
ask for support from the Nat- 
chitoches campus on any legislation 
brought before the NSU SGA 

Respectfully submitted,

Learning The Art of Hitchhiking 

By James Ingram 
Sauce Reporter 

In the first part of the series, I 
discussed the planning stage in the 
art of hitchhiking. I went into the 
geography needed in this ancient 
art. I discussed the importance of 
maps, and the importance of 
knowing where one is going. I 
briefly touched on the proper way to 
make a sign, and the common sense 
one needs when they pack their 
bags. I also warned that a hiker 

Once a person has picked up a 
map, knows where he is going and 
how to get there, made a sign and 
packed his bags, he is ready to hit 
the road. This week I shall take a 
look at the second stage in the art of 
hitchhiking, the execution stage, or 
in layman terms, bagging a lift. 

Getting a ride not only requires a 
lot of empathy on the part of the 
driver, but also on the part of the 
hiker. You must put yourself in the 
driver's shoes. In doing this, you' 
must make yourself accessible to the 
driver. Stand in a place where it is 
easy for a driver to pick you up. 

Whenever you are on an in- 
terstate, always look ahead of you, 
approximately 500 feet, and make 
sure that the area is safe and that the 
driver can pull over without dif- 
ficulty. The driver will never know 
that you have staged this, but he will 
subconsciously appreciate this 
courtesy. When on an entrance 
ramp, stand in a spot where the 
driver has enough shoulder to pull 
the vehicle over. Estimate the time 
that it will take a driver to see you, 
decide to stop, and then stop. Also 
estimate the approximate location 
the driver will be when he pulls over. 
Make sure this area is safe. Never 
stand in a curve and always be sure 
that the area ahead of you is not in a 
curve. If the driver doesn't think it 
is safe to stop, he won't. 

Position yourself on the highway 
so that you will be easily seen. If you 
are on a hill, stand just before the 
apex or on the top of the hill. 
Regardless of where you stand, stay 
close to plenty of lights. Remember, 
sooner or later the sun must go 

In Berkley, California, home of 
the University of California, in- 
terstate entrance ramps are 
equipped not only with an added 
amount of light for hitchhikers and 
extra wide shoulders for the driver's 
safety when they pull over, but also 
with litter baskets. Some have signs 
saying "Hikers, put your trash 
here." There are three reasons for 
these added features. I — 80, which 
goes from San Francisco to New 
York, and passes through Berkley, 
is highly traveled by hitchhikers, 
and in California, it is illegal to 
hitchhike on the highways them- 
selves but it is legal to thumb from 
any entrance ramp anywhere in the 

If where you are standing is 
inappropriate and dangerous, walk 
down to the next exit. It might be a 
little better equipped for your 
purposes. Always remember to put 
yourself in the driver's shoes. 

Once in a while 
someone fights back. 


Oct. 9-10 
Arts & Science 

As soon as a person has 
positioned himself correctly, he is 
ready to solicit a ride. Put your bags 
in front of you, and hold your sign 
in your left hand. Extend your right 
arm so that it is at a 180 degree angle 
and raise your thumb to a 90 degree 
angle. Twist your h and to a_45 
degree angle. This gives you class 
and style and it is also a little more 

There are two types of hikers, the 
walkers and the standers. The 
walkers are the ones who truck it 
most of the way. They backpack it, 
turning and thumbing at every 
vehicle that passes. The standers are 
the cool hikers who walk only as 
far as from the exit ramp where 
they are dropped off, to the en- 
trance ramp where they get another 
ride. I am a stander. Once while 
hiking from Houston to New York 
City, I walked only five miles, and 
this was due to the fact that I 
stopped in Kansas City to sightsee, 
got lost, and couldn't find my way 
•back to 1—80. 

Acting is an integral part of 
hitchhiking. Assume an expression 
of being lost and forsaken, but 

there was more traffic. After a 
considerable length of time, the 
Highway Patrol came along, 
stopped, asked for his I.D., gave 
him a ticket for hitchhiking, and 
drove him back to ne Valley, 
kicking him off the highway. 

He caught a ride back to San 
Diego, where the traffic was better, 
and caught another ride heading 
east. After going a few miles, he 

learned that this driver was going 
only as far as ne Valley. When he 
got out, it was well into the evening, 
and he was in exactly the same spot 
he had started from that morning. 
Distressed and exhausted, he once 
again left the ramp and got back on 
the highway. Two more police 
officers drove up, gave him a ticket, 
and kicked him off the highway. 
Near his wits' end, he began 
jumping around, yelling and 
screaming, shaking his sign 
violently. A few minutes later a man 
pulled up, and he was going all the 
way to Phoenix. The motto of this 
story is, don't give up. Change your 
acting routine and remember sooner 
or later, a good Samaritan will show 

and fire one up. Never smoke while 
you are standing and hiking. It 
makes you appear to the driver that 
you can afford some other means of 
travel, and if you can, then you 
don't need to be on the road in the 
first place. 

Highway Delirium is to hit- 
chhikers what the Bubonic Plague 
was to Europe. It is the worst 
disease a hitchhiker can get. In the 
early stages, a remorseful mood sets 
across one's face. He even begins to 
ask himself why he is on the road in 
the first place. He may start to hum 
softly to himself, then there will 
come short outbursts of laughter. 
Eventually he regresses and becomes

plead each passing vehicle to stop. 
In the later stages, he curses the cars

even flick a birdie or two. In the 
final stage, the hiker comes to the

stops or not. He is content with 
staying right where he is, in the 
middle of nowhere. He then sits 
down, crosses his legs, and again 
fires one up.

Rebel State Park 

The grave of the unkown soldier and the new amphitheatre 
are just part of the attraction at the Rebel Park. The Park is 
really a nice place to go to listen to some good Country music 
or just have a cookout of picnic. 

Rebel Park An Attraction 
For All NSU Students 

If you find yourself sitting on 
your bags, with your legs crossed, 
smoking away, not caring if you 
never make it another inch, in the 
middle of nowhere, humming to 
yourself, don't worry, you're not 
alone. Just remember that down the 
road there are hundreds of other 
hikers doing the same thing. When 
that first car pulls over, you will 
immediately snap out of it. Just 
grab your sign and your bags, relax, 
take it easy, and haul tail. 

Next week: What to do when you 
catch that ride, how to make the 
driver keep his foot on the gas, 
helpful conversational hints, and 
much, much more. 

NSU students never really get a 
chance to find out much about 
Natchitoches Parish, but there are a 
lot of places and things worth seeing 
if you have the time and ambition to 
see them. 

One of these places is the Rebel 
State Park, near Marthaville 

For years the Park was just a 
marked grave in the woods that was 
taken care of by the Barnhill family, 
but from 1961- 1975 Robert Gentry, 
the editor and publisher of the 
Sabine Index worked to build up the 
state site, and promoted the annual 
memeorial services. He also secured 
top country and western musicians 
for appearanced at the park. 

In 1975 the State Parks and 
Recreation Commission took over 
development of the park and 
construction began on its 

There have been several stages to 
the renovation process such as a 
1500 seat amphitheatre, roadway 
and parking lots. 

Today the third stage of the Rebel 
State Park is nearing completion. 
The amphitheatre is being rebuilt 
with dressing rooms and a sound 
system being added. There will also 
be restrooms and a renovated 
electrical unit. 

Also under consturction is a new 
country and western museum for 

tourists to enjoy. The building will 
be shaped like a musical instrument 
and will house mementos of various 
stars who have come to the Park. 

"We are really excited about our 
new projects, said Max Teasley, 
who is the Superintendent of the 
Rebel Park. "We hope to have some 
kind of program at least once a 
month. We will probably have 
concerts (bluegrass and country) 
and we always have " he added. 

The park can boast some pretty 
big names in the country and 
western music world such as, Roy 
Acuff, David Houston, Ernest 
Tubb, the Wilburn Brothers, Jima 
dn Jesse and the Virginia Brothers, 
and Bill Monroe, not to mention 
countless others ,who have been 

Teasley added, " We welcome 
any group that wants to come and 
enjoy the park and we sutely 
welcome students." 

" Of course, in October, we have 
a special memorial service to pay 
our repects to the unknown solider, 
and it is really something to see," he 

The park has grown and become a 
nice restful area so if your looking 
for some good old courtry music or 
a really nice place for a cookout or 
picnic you might just want to head 
on out to Marthaville.

Riverbank Pops Concert Oct. 7 

Vast contrasts of musical styles 
will be showcased Tuesday, Oct. 7, 
when the Natchitoches- 
Northwestern Symphony Orchestra 
presents its traditional pops concert 
on the downtown riverbank in the 
heart of this historic city. 

Dr. J. Robert Smith will be 
conducting the 7:30 concert, wich is 
being presented to the public free of 
charge as the local symphony 
society opens its 1980-81 season. 

Eugene Watson Couzyn and 
David Couzyn, internationally- 
acclaimed opera stars from 
Pretoria, South Afirca, will be the 
guest soloists for the concert. 

Smith, who is the symphony 
orchestra's musical director in 
addition to being its conductor, said 

the music for the opening concert 
will "appea to a broad range of 
musical tastes with traditional 
orchestral overtures, excerpts from 
opera, operetta and musical shows, 
and a number of western music 

The outdoor concert is being 
presented this year through 
financial assistance provide by a 
grant from the Music Performance 
Trust Funds, a public service 
organization created and financed 
by the Recording Industries under 
agreements with the American 
Federation of Musicians. The grant 
was obtained with the cooperation 
of Shreveport Federation of 
Musicians, Local 116, A.F. of M. 

"We want to encourage the 

people of Natchitoches and the 
surrounding areas to bring their 
blankets, lawn chairs, bales of hay 
and to wear their latest western 
attire so they can feel relaxed as they 
enjoy our concert," said Smith. 

He added, "The program will be 
an enjoyable evening for all 
members of the family, and will 
satisfy a variety of musical tastes." 

The concert's guest artists will be 
demonstrating their great versatility 
of talent with performances of 
grand opera and American western 

Highlights of the program will 
include Aaron Copland's "An 
Outdoor Overture" and the many 
novel sound effects in Richard 
Hayman's "Pops Hoe-Down." 

A Theatrical Critique 

By Stephen Howard 
Sauce Theatre Critic 

Susan Monday showed con- 
siderable daring in choosing to 
direct Ibsen's A Doll's House. The 
play is a hoary Victorian classic, full 
of gruesome endearments ("my 
little spendthrift," "my little 
squirrel," "my little song bird"), 
stock characters (a kinkly doctor, a 
female confidant, a villian with 
second thoughts), and subplots 
(one-time lovers who are reunited by 
the end of the play). Add to this the 
Speech Department's current lack 
of a theater and shop facilities, and 
the two and a half weeks' 
production time (as opposed to the 
usual four), and you've got a 
challenge on your hands. 

Nevertheless the production has 
something going for it. "The father 
of modern drama" is still capable of 
surprises. His treatment of this 
theme — a woman's role in society — 
is still timely; the final scene of the 
play could have been written 
yesterday. For all the drama's 
notoriety, Nora's decision to leave 

her family and her home in search 
of herself is still surprising and 

The absence of more traditional 
facilities provides an imaginative 
director an opportunity to ex- 
periment. Susan Monday expanded 
the drama from the time stage of 
Keyser Hall into the audience— a 
simple device, but still surprisingly 
effective. I have seldom felt so 
intimately involved in an NSU 

Ms. Monday has also cast the 
play interestingly. She has used two 
freshmen, Caroline Gutierrez as 
Ellen and James Ingram in the 
important role of Krogstad, 
providing them valuable experience. 
She has placed blacks, Ingram and 
Linda Cooksey as Mrs. Linde, in 
roles which are traditionally con- 
sidered vhite. Finally, she has given 
the dr matic part of Nora to an 
actres; who until now has been 
given chiefly comic character roles, 
Bambi Sears. This last choice, 
especially, paid off. 

Saturday's performance was 
uneven. Lines were missed, there 
were technical problems; some of

the scenes seemed interminable. 
But, at the same time it was oddly 
successful. The third act, which 
began slowly, suddenly gained 
energy and Nora's confrontation 
with Torvald was so powerful that 
one could forgive anything that 
came before. 

The play is very much Nora's. 
Bambi Sears rose to the challenge 
admirably. Her portrayal of Nora's 
maturing from a flighty girl to a 
self-award woman was most 
convincing. Her face and voice are 
expressive; an occasional gesture 
may go awry or be overdone, but on 
the whole she acts with great sen- 
sitivity. After an initial moment of 
nervousness, she brought energy 
and cancertartion to her part. Her 
lines were consistantly well- 
delivered; the final scene was 
gripping and more than deserved the 
standing ovation it received. 

Among Ms. Sears supporting 
actors, the best was Terry Monday 
as Dr. Rank. He acted with non- 
chalant ease and the scenes they 
shared were some of the most en- 
joyable of the play. 

Cliff Teasley as Torvald was 
strangely disappointing. The part is 
admittedly a difficult one. The 
character is unsympathetic and must 
say some of the play's most ex- 
cruciating lines, but, on the whole, 
he failed to do the kind of job one 
has come to expect of him. He had 
not thoroughly mastered his lines 
Saturday night and seemed unable 
to bring concentration to his role. 
He did, however, rise to the last 
scene and his contribution helped 
make it the moving moment that it 

Finally, Ms. Monday should be 
commeded for her choice of plays. 
A Doll's House, for all its old- 
fashioned moments is a classic 
modern drama. Any serious 
theatergoer should be given a 
chance to see it and, for all its 
faults, this is a production well 
worth seein; I hope that in the 
future NSU udents will be given 
opportunities to see other such 
classics— works by Shaw, Chekov, 
and Strindberg— in addition to the 
contemporary plays that are usually 
performed here. 

A Doll's House last performance 
is tonight in Keyser Auditorium. 
Curtain time is 7:30.

Northwestern Upsets McNeese 13-10, Defense Stars, Record 4-0 

by Mike Gallien 
Sauce Asst. Sports Editor 

Northwestern State University is 

Say what? Yes, the Demons are 
4-0 for the first time since 1967, 
bringing home a thrilling, last- 
second 13-10 win over the highly 
touted McNeese State University 
Cowboys Saturday night. 

Sophomore sidewinder Dale 
Quickel, handling the placement 
duties for the first time this season, 
punched through a 19-yard field 
goal, his second three pointer of the 
night, with four seconds left on the 
clock to give the Demons the 
comeback win. 

The Demons second consecutive 
road win halted the favored 
Cowboys 15-game regular season 
winning streak and a 22-game streak 
in the friendly confines of Cowboy 

"McNeese has an outstanding 
team," commented an overjoyed 
Demon head coach A.L. Williams, 
"and you feel good beating that 
kind of team. They had a 15-game 
winning streak and it's always 
gratifying to beat a great team. 

A standing-room-only crowd of 
21 ,095 saw junior quarterback Eric 
Barkley come off the bench midway 
through the third period to lead the 
Demons to 10 fourth quarter points, 
» rallying the team from a 10-3 

Barkley, four of nine for 90 
yards, led a ball-control offense that 
allowed McNeese to touchjhe ball 
just once in the final stanza, 
relieving an inspired Demon defense 
that completely shut down the high- 
powered Cowboy offense 
throughout the game. 

The Demons' winning drive 
consumed all but one second of the 
7:21 that remained on the clock 
when NSU assumed control of the 
ball. The monster 17-play, 73-yard 
drive nearly fizzled at midfield after 
an incomplete third down pass, but 
an over-zealous Cowboy lineman, 
defensive tackle Clay Carroll, 
smashed Barkley to the turf well 
after the pass was released. 

The ensuing 15-yard roughing 
penalty gave the Demon drive new 

life and a first down at the McNeese 
34. From there, it was "grind-it- 
out," as Northwestern used 10 plays 
to cover the remaining yardage. 

After a key third and 10 pass to 
freshman wide receiver Jerry 
Wheeler, for 16 markers, the 
Demons depended on workhorse 
senior tailback Joe Delaney to 
position the ball. 

Delaney who carried the ball 26 
times for 135 yards and the 
Demons' lone touchdown, toted the 
ball six consecutive times for 16 
yards to put the ball on the Cowboy 

At that point, the Demons let the 
clock tick down to four seconds 
before using their final time out. 
Following a "psych-out" time out 
by the Cowboys, Quickel calmly 
chipped through his game-winning 

The Demons had tied the game 
earlier in the quarter on a seven- 
yard jaunt by Delaney. Two 
Barkley passes set up the score on 
the eight-play, 78-yard drive. The 
catch was Liles' sixth of the night 
for 101 yards. 

Three plays later, Barkley hit 
junior speedster Victor Oatis with a 
45-yard bomb. Oatis fell to the 
ground at the McNeese seven after 
making a spectacular fingertip grab. 

Delaney scored on the next play 
sweeping the right side. 

Rather than going for the tie, the 
Demons opted for a two-point 
conversion. Barkley rolled right 
and hit Liles for the apparent go- 
ahead points, but the play was 
nullified by a bizarre ineligible man 
call on the Northwestern bench, as 
some of the NSU players wandered 
out of the 30-yard line box on the 
sidelines to get a better look at the 
conversion attempt. 

The 15-yard penalty made what is 
sometimes referred to as the 
"automatic," not so automatic. 
Williams sent Quickel onto the field 
and he responded with a successful 
35-yard extra point. 

For most of the first three 
quarters though, the name of the 
game was turnovers and defense. 
The Demons had a number of 
promising drives snuffed out by 

Northwestern, which had only 
two turnovers coming into the 
game, fumbled the ball away four 
times and had two aerials picked 

McNeese could never really take 
advantage of the sometimes ex- 
cellent field position as the swar- 
ming Tasmanian Devil defense held 
the southwest Louisiana school to 
just 202 yards. David Grappe led 
the defenders with 1 1 tackles. 
McNeese took an early 3-0 lead on a 
35-yard field goal by senior kicker 
Don Stump. The drive started at the 
McNeese 37 after a blocked Quickel 
field goal attempt. The Deons had 
driven to McNeese's 17 before 
stalling when Cowboy definsive 
back Leonard Smith roared in to bat 
down the 34-yard attempt and 
linebacker Mike Smith returned the 
deflection 10 yards. 

Following a Leo Clement punt, 
the Cowboys drove to the Demon 
two early in the second quarter. 
Three shots into the heart of the 
Demon line netted the Pokes just 
one yard. After a time out, Mc- 
Neese quarterback Stephen Starring 
and tailback Theron McClendon 
mishandled the fourth-down 
handoff and Demon defensive end 
Sam Jenkins recovered to kill the 

Followng two Northwestern 
turnovers and two McNeese punts,

the Demons finally got rolling. 
Starting Quarterback Bobby 
Hebert, who didn't have a bad night 
completing 13 of 21 passes for 145 
yards despite two interceptions, hit 
on four straight passes on the 10- 
play, 73-yard drive before the 
Cowboy defense stiffened at the 
NSU 17. 

Quickel then booted through a 
34-yard field goal to tie the game 
with 47 ticks left in the first half. 

McNeese took the lead again early 
in the third period. Poke linebacker 
Daryl Burckel picked off Hebert's 
first pass of the second half and 
returned it to the Demon 17 to set 
up the score. 

After picking up a first-and-goal 
at the four, the Demon defense 
again tightened. After holding for 
two downs, Starring rolled out 
looking for wide receiver Randy 
Branch. Under a heavy rush, 
Starring fired right at Demon safety 
Darrell Toussaint who tipped the 
ball high into the air. 

Branch, standing behind 
Toussaint at the back of the end 
zone, did a tightrope act on the end 
line to snare the wounded quail for a 
McNeese touchdown. 

Stump added the extra point. In 
doing so he set a new state record of 
63 consecutive PAT's. The old 
record of 62 was held by former 
Tulane kicker Eddie Murray. 

That was "all-she-wrote" for the 
Cowboys though as their only 
sustained drive after that was killed 
by another superb defensive effort. 

The Pokes drove to the Demon 26 
on their only fourth quarter 
possession. In a fourth-and-two 
situation, McNeese decided to try 
for the first down instead of a long 
Stump field goal try. 

On the play, Starring pitched to 
McClendon, who was held to just 79 
yards on 20 carries, on a sweep to 
the left side. The Demon defense 
contained the play and Toussaint 
trapped McClendon for a one-yard 
loss. The stop gave the ball for their 
winning drive. 

Northwestern completely 
dominated the ballgame 
statistically, rolling up over 400 
yards in total offense for the fourth 
straight week. NSU outgained the

and 29 on an option pass to a wide- 
open senior tight end Barry Rubin. 

The Cowboys usually awesome 

running attack was held to 179 yards 
on 42 carries by the Demon degense. 

Throught the airways, McNeese 
managed just 23 yards, completing 
only two of nine attempts. 

"I felt like we came with as good 
a defensive game plan as possible," 
said Williams. "Our defense played 
well to overcome a lot of adversity. 

Demons To Play On Tube 

Northwestern's football team will 
be playing on television for the first 
time in its history when the Demons 
face Northeast Louisiana in Monroe 

Game time, which was originally 
set for 7:30 p.m., will be 12:50 p.m. 
Saturday. The game will be 
broadcast as one of five regional 
broadcasts around the nation on 
ABC-TV. The game can be seen in 
the Natchitoches area on KTBS-TV 
(Ch. 3) in Shreveport and possibly 
KALB-T V (Ch . 5) in Alexandria. 

The announcers for the Nor- 
thwestern-Northeast contest will be 
Steve Zabriski and Ben Martin. The 
game can be seen in all of Louisiana 
and in parts of the surrounding 

Northwestern has never appeared 
on television. Northeast was on a 

four-station, statewide network in 
1970 when it lost a 9-7 contest to the 
University of Southwestern 

"We think this is super," said 
Northwestern Athletic Director and 
head football Coach A.L. Williams. 

"We are disappointed the game 
won't be here as we had hoped, but 
we are thrilled that it will be 

The Demons will take a perfect 4- 
mark into the contest, while 
Northeast stands at 2-1 . A capacity 
crowd is expected for the contest in 
NLU's Malone Stadium. Reserved 
tickets are on sale at the Nor- 
thwestern ticket office in the field 
house, while student general ad- 
mission tickets can be purchased at 
the stadium on Saturday. 

Team Effort Provides Demon Win Over Cowboys 

It was definitely the biggest win of 
the year (so far) and it was probably 
the biggest in several years including 
the one over Tech last year. 
Northwestern's win over McNeese 
proved beyond a shadow of a doubt 
that the Demons are for real and a 
team to be reckoned with. 

West Texas State couldn't do it. 
Neither could Toledo and Tulsa 
and Southwestern. None of them 
could beat McNeese. But the 
Demons could and did, 13-10 
behind the last second field goal of 
Dale Quickel, the 190 yards in total 
offense from Joe Delaney, and the 
unbelievable job that the Demon 
defense did on Theron McClendon 
and the rest of the Cowboys. 

"Thrilled to death" was the way 
head coach A.L. Williams put it. 
He was "more than proud of the 
Demons staying in with all the 
adversity (crowd noise, foreign 

Miller Athlete of the Week 

Dale Quickel Sam Jenkins 

Northwestern placekicker Dale Quickel earns Athlete of the Week honors after making a 
winning Held goal with just four seconds left to give the Demons a 13-10 win over tough 
McNeese Saturday night. 

Quickel booted through a 19-yarder with just four ticks left on the clock to give NSU its 
winning margin. 

The sophomore from Little Rock, Ark., playing in his first game of the season, added 
another field goal in the win and kicked a crucial extra point from 35 yards away to tie the 
game early in the fourth period. The kick came after an NSU penalty on the two-point 
conversion try. 

Receiving high honorable mention honors are running back Joe Delaney and wide 
receiver Randy Liles. 

Delaney was a vital cog for NSU with 135 yards on the ground in 28 carries while Liles 
hauled in six passes for over 100 yards to help the Demons tremendously. 
Taking defensive honors this week is sophomore defensive end Sam Jenkins. 
Jenkins was a stalwart on defense for the Demons with 10 tackles and a recovered

stadium, etc.) and kept coming and 
coming. Dad-gum they did a great 

It was the best team effort by far 
this year. Four of the six regular 
offensive lineman graded above 
75% And the other two were right 
behind by one or two percentage 
points. Leading them was Fred 
Galloway who graded a fantastic 
80% Barry Rubin, Doug Manning, 
Steve Shillings, and Warren Griffith 
graded 77, 76, and 75% respec- 
tively. Johnny Skinner and Randy 
Lee also had outstanding games. 
Griffith had four knockdowns on 
the night while Shilling had two. 

Randy Liles led the receivers with 

six catches for 107 yards. Delaney 
caught five for twenty-seven yards 
and Victor Oatis caught a pass for 

forty-five yards. Barry Rubin had 
two for thirty-two, and Walter 
Mays, Carlton Finister, Jerry 
Wheeler, and Doug Manning each 
had a reception. 

Bobby Hebert was 13-21 for 145 
yards while Eric Barkley was 4-9 for 
90 yards and Delaney even got into 
the act by throwing once for twenty- 
nine yards. 

In the rushing department ran the 
ball twenty six times for 135 yards. 
Finister added ten totes for 46 yards 
and Hebert was 7-18. 

Punter Leo Clement punted three 
times for a 32.3 average and place- 
kicker Dale Quickel kicked two field 
goals, one with four seconds left to 
win the game, and a 28 yard extra 
point attempt. 

Defensively, Tim Jordan led 
everybody with an 88% grading. 
Regulars Bud Snodgrass, David 
Bigley, and Ed Orgeron had 86, 83. 
and 83% grades. David Grappe led 
the defense by being in on 11 
tackles. He was followed closely by 
Sam - Jenkins with 10 and Gary 
Reasons with 9, Bruce McCreary, 
7, Mike Camden, Greg Williams, 
Snodgrass, Orgeron, and Mike Ford 
all had six tackles. 

James Bennett: Years Keep Getting Longer 

The seasons 
are beginning to get longer and 
longer for Northwestern State 
Universty wide receiver James 

Bennett, a 6-1, 185-pound senior, 
broke for the goal line on a third- 
and thirteen play from the 
University of Texas-Arlington 30 
yard line Saturday night. The pass 
was on target from quarterback 
Bobby Hebert and Bennett went 
diving for the ball at the touchdown 

The pass play was broken up by 
two Mavericks defenders and the 
results was one collar-bone broken 
in favor of Bennett. "I didn't think 
it was that serious," said Demon 
head coach A.L. Williams, "and I 
didn't even go out onto the field." 

Williams and his staff were 
hoping that the injury to the 
standout receiver wasn't as serious 
as it seemed but team physician 
Eugene Christmas revealed Wed- 
nesday that Bennett's collar-bone 
was completely broken on the play. 

"We had hoped that James could 
return in three to five weeks," 
added Willimas, "but now we have 
to be doubtful about him returning 
any this season." 

Bennett's career could be over 
unless Williams can get the NCAA 
to declare the wide out cases a 
hardship matter. In that event will 
be eligible for next season. 

"A request has to be sent to the 
NCAA and approved in order for 
James' case to be considered as a 
hardship matter,'.' said Williams, 
"but we are optimistic that we'll be 
able to get James back next 

, "The NCAA rule states that if a 
player has not played in over 20% 
of the team's games he could be 
redshirted for the season." 

For the Demons the loss of the 
standout Bennett could be a costly 
one before the season ends. "James 
was having by far the best season 
he's ever had," Williams added, 
"and his good attitude and hard 

work was really beginning to 
show." It's just a shame that we 

can't have him back this season but 
a coaching staff has to expect those 
situations sometimes." 

What have we here? 

The Demons have opened the 
season with four straight impressive 
wins. That makes one grab for the 
record books, because it has been 
awhile since a Northwestern team 
has accomplished such a feat. 

As has been noted in a previous 
edition of the Sauce, the Demons 
last won four in-a-row at the 
beginning of the season in 1967. 
During that season, the Demons 
won their first four games against 
Hanover College, Louisiana 
College, Northeast, and Pensacola 

The Demons travelled to the State 
Fair Game that year with a 4-0 
record and came home with a 7-0 
win over the Canines. That win was 
the Demons last of a 15-game 
winning streak which began with the 
last game of 1965. The streak was 
the longest consecutive streak in 74 
years of football. 

Prior to that were unbeaten in 16 
games with a tie sandsandwiched in 
during the 1939 and 1940 seasons. 
The Demons were 11-0 in '39, won 
their first two in '40 and then tied 
Louisiana College. The tie was 
followed by two more wins before 
the Demons crumbled to lose three 
of their last five. 

The 1980 version of the Demons 
is a class act. In the past we haven't 
had an overabundance of talent at 
key positions, against even tougher 

But the Demons have confidence 
and desire. They know they can win 
now, on the road and at home. And 
now an added incentive: television. 

Some people think it might add 
pressure to the already tough 
contest, but it goes both ways. 

Through four games this season 
the "Demon Express" has rolled 
over everyone. Statistically, the 
Demons have picked up 1,879 
yards, while holding opponents to 
1,230. On the scoreboard, the 
Demons lead 103-54. 

Not bad folks! These guys are for 
real, and now they are getting a 
reward: a regional broadcast on 
ABC. But they need our support. 
There will be a big crowd on hand to 
see the game, mostly from Nor- 
theast. Tickets will be available at 
the gate for students with an ID for 
just $3. 

Let's make signs and raise hell 
and let the TV audience know that 
we're backing a winner. We'll see 
you in Monroe. Remember, the 
game time has been moved up to 
12:50, so be there, aloha! 

Page 8, Current Sauce, Tuesday, September 30, 1980 

After four games and a very 
surprising record of 4-0, the 
Northwestern Demons have been 
showing some of the most wide- 
open football to be seen in these 
parts in a long time. There are 
several reasons why this style has 
been so effective thus far, the main 
reason is... THE OFFENSIVE 

For those of you who don't know 
the offensive line by name (and I am 
sure that you don't unless you play 
there) here are their names and 

At left tackle is Johnny Skinner. 
Beside him at left guard is Steve 
Shillings who plays next to the 
center, Warren Griffith. On the 
right side is guard Fred Galloway 
who is next to the tackle, Randy 
Lee. Now let's meet their coaches. 

The main man of the offensive 
line is coach Joe Raymond Peace, 
Peace is described alternately by his 
troops as... "The best coach in the 
state," and "Brilliant." He has 
also been described as the person 
who "makes us tick." His graduate 
assistant is Bill Johnson who head 
coach A.L. Williams says knows the 
NSU system as well or better than 
any player he has ever coached. 

Now let's meet your offensive 

Johnny Skinner is a 6-5 245 
pound senior from DeRidder who 
I started every game last year. He is 
considered by many to be one of the 
Demons top interior lineman. 
Against Stephen F. Austin Skinner 
got a grading of 70% which by 
comparative standards means he did 
a great job. According to Peace, 
Skinner gives more hustle more of 
the time than any of the other 
linemen. At 6-5 Skinner is also the 
tallest Demon. About the Demons 
this year Skinner says, "You can tell 
we are more experienced this year. 
We compliment each other very 

At 6-0 and 235 pounds, 
sophomore guard Steve Shillings is 
about the quickest lineman the 
Demons have. He has started for 
I the Demons since the middle of last 
year and he improves in every game 
that he plays in, accordine to 

Steve is also one of the strongest 
Demons. As for his outlook on the 
season, Shillings says, "We have a 
much closer offense this year 
because of the experience. We're a 
year older. The whole offense 
works together and when we work 
together nobody can stop us. We 
have the best backs in the country, 
even if we have a bad play they will 
make us look good. We (offensive 
line) compliment each other, but 
they (backs) make us look good." 

At center, Warren Griffith who 
stands 6-1, 220, has one of the 
toughest jobs of any of his team- 
mates. He has to blow open the 
middle of the line. And against 
some of bigger noseguards and 
linbackers around, he certainly has 
made his presence felt. Consider the 
Texas-Arlington game when he 
graded 84% against an all- 
Conference linebacker. Not only 
wasthatthe highest grade to date for 
the linemen, but in thatgamehe also 
had eight knockdowns. As do all 
the rest of the Demons, Griffith, 
"would like to see the stadium 
filled. The parents, students, kids 
and other people who a re there seem 
enthused . We're all together this 

year. We're one big family. We've 
had rough seasons in the past. But 
we're all together. Alot of people 
showed up at the SFA game. 
Usually we go out there and there 
might be a few but never like they 
were there, (at SFA) We haven't had 
as much publicity in the past as 
we're getting now." 

All-Louisiana guard Fred 
Galloway stands at 5-9 and 265 
pounds of granite. Galloway had a 
personal best game of 78% for the 
SFA game. He played all over the 
'jacks best defensive player and 
gave him fits all night long. Ac- 
cording to his coaches, he is fast 
returning to the form that made him 
an All-Louisiana selection as a 
junior. "I'm glad to be playing 
here. Almost went to McNeese 
(where his brother James plays 
fullback) but came here mostly just 
to get away, and find out if I could 
make it on my own." Obviously he 
has. "Last year all anybody could 
talk about was; could we beat 
Tech. That's all anybody cared 
about. Then when we did, they said 
so what, everybody else did too. 
Losing tears you down." 

Since he has been a freshman, 6- 
2, 235 pound junior right tackle 
Randy Lee has been one of the most 
consistent Demon players. Coach 
Peace stated that Randy is one of 
the most dedicated team players he 
has ever coached and he can and 
will get even better. Randy has seen 
plenty of action at both guard and 
tackle during his stay at NSU. 
"Last year the Current Sauce was 
down on us. Everybody was young. 

We're all back now. Nobody 
realized how young we were. Each 
week it's gonna get tougher. Pep 
rallies and the general spirit help 
alot though. But the last few times 
that we looked out of the fieldhouse 
and looked into the stands it seemed 
like there were only about 50 people 
at the football games. We need 
more people there. We're gonna 
play good, try to every time, but it's 
a great incentive to see and hear a 
filled stadium." 

The best of the rest, Tony Fakess, 
Charlie Rose, and Mark Matthews 
to name but a few. 

Matthews is 6-4 junior tackle who 
has seen a great deal of action as a 
Demon. Bunches and bunches of 
potential according to his coaches. 
Rose is a 6-1 sophomore who has 
the dubuious distiction of playing 
behind Galloway. He's a strong 
player who makes up for his lack of 
size with quickness. Fakess is a six- 
foot junior who has played all three 
interior line positions since coming 
to NSU as a walk-on. He is 
deceptively quick. 

All in all, for the Demons to 
continue to enjoy the early season 
success and the number eight 
ranking in the nation in 1-AA, the 
offensive line is going to have to 
remain as impressive in their last 
seven games as they were in their 
first four. 

And in the words of Joe 
Raymond Peace, "You can have 
three Bobby Heberts, four Joe 
Delaneys or whatever, but with no 
offensive line giving 100% all of the 
time every play, you will not win. 
The best play will not go without the 
offensive line. One person cannot 
make the offense go. TO BE

Gallien, Stamey Blow It; Panel Increased By One 

When the final results came 
through to the Current Sauce offices 
from the previous weeks predic- 
tions, it was learned that "super- 
picker" Mike Gallien had once 
again pulled the "bonehead" pick 
of the week by picking McNeese 
over the Demons. 

However, this week he had 
company in the form of FORMER 
co-leader David Stamey who also 
had the gall to pick the Cowboys. A 
special Bravo goes to the three 
selectors who picked Northwestern. 


Guest selector Wendy Cox heads 
the list of Panel members who 
sported a 7-3 record for the week. 
Faculty member Dr. Ray 
Baumgardner, who still does not 
believe the bug theory, and Sports 
Ed. Joe Cunningham rounded out 
the group at 7-3. Gallien and 
Stamey, obviously affected by the 
outcome of the McNeese- 
Northwestern game, missed four 
games while only hitting on six. 

This weeks panel membership will 

be increased to six at the request of 
Gallien. It seems that he is tired of 
always having the bonehead pick 
and wanted to do something about 
it. He figured that if you increase 
that number of panel members you 
would increase number of games 
being picked and therefore increase 
the number of chances of somebody 
else making a bonehead pick. 
However, Dr. Baumgardner said 
that would not matter with Mike 
anyway. Accordin g to th e good 
doctor there could be a TuTrKlred 

guest selectors Mike would still grab 
the bonehead award. 

This week two freshmen, uh, 
excuse em wah, two freshwomen of 
the female species will try to test 
their knowledge with that of the 
panel regulars. Terri Ellis, a 
computer science major, and Teresa 
Peterson, a Business majo r Terrf 
and Teresa were then chosen from 
among 134 applicants because at 
one time of another in their lives 
they had each dated a football 

Northeast Provides Next Challenge For Demons 

Undefeated and untied Nor- 
thwestern tangles with the Northeast 
Louisiana University Indians in a 
1 :00 game Saturday in the new 
James L. Malone Stadium in 

The Indians come into this game 
on a two game win streak after 
Josing their opener to Iowa State 42- 
7 and tfien coming back to whip 
Arkansas State 35-12 and most 
recently blanking Southwestern 

The big guns for Northeast this 
year is tailback Nathan Johnson 

who ran for 100 yards last week 
includng a 42 yard scamper for a 
touchdown. On the year he has 232 
yards in three games for a 77.1 
average per game. Quarterback 
John Holman is the Indians other 
major offensive threat. He is 42 for 
81 in the passing dapartment for 525 
yards and two touchdowns. Prior 
to the USL game, Holman was 
nationally ranked in the total of- 
fense category with 180 yards per 

Defensively the Indians are led by 
Ron Reliford who probably will not 

see action this week because of an 
injury. Behind him is Jody Norman 
who was averaging over 12 tackles a 
game before the USL game. After 
Norman comes Ken Poole, 12.5 
tackles a game, and Ricky Sanders 
who stepped in for Reliford last 
week and had 6 tackles and in- 
tercepted two passes. 

According to head coach John 
David Crow, the Indians have 
picked up right where they left off in 
the spring and the enthusiam and 
desire has been great. 

Northwestern head coach A. L. 

Hebert, Delaney, Clement Ranked In 1-AA 

The passing arm of quarterback 
Bobby Hebert and the talents of 
tailback Joe Delaney give Nor- 
thwestern State good representation 
in the NCAA Division 1-AA 
statistics released this week prior to 
the Demons game against McNeese. 

Hebert leads the nation in passing 
efficiency, the NCAA's method of 
rating quarterbacks. Hebert has 
connected on 43 of 69 passes for 786 
yards and eight touchdowns while 
tossing just one interception in three 
games. Hebert 's rating total is 
193.4 compared to the 197.9 rating 
of No. 2 man Brian Whitmire of 


The sophomore from South 
Lafourche High is also second in 
total offense with a per game 
average of 309.3 yards a game. The 
leader in total offense <s quar- 
terback Neil Lomax of Portland 
State with an average of 435 yards 
per game. Lomax and his Portland 
State teammates will play at 
Northwestern on November 1 . 

In all purpose runners Nor- 
thwestern's Delaney is ranked 
fourth. The senior from Haughton 
has gained 250 yards rushing on 49 
attempts and has caught 10 passes 

for 208 yards, giving him a total of 
152.7 yards per game. 

The only other Demon individual 
to be raked is punter Leo Clement. 
The sophomore from Crowley 
raised his punting average to 42.9 to 
rank him fourth. Against Stephen 
F. Austin last week Clement had his 
best two punts of the season, good 
for 51 and 57 yards. 

In team statistics the Demons are 
second in team offense with an 
average of 477 yards a contest and 
second in passing offense with 291.3 
yards a game. Portland State ranks 
first in both catagories.

Williams says that Northeast has got 
to be strong to be able to defeat 
Arkansas State in Arkansas and 
Southwestern. And although he 
hasn't seen NSU on film, they are 
always tough in Monroe. 

In last year's game played in 
Turpin Stadium, the Demons won 
20-14 behind the 157 yard running 
of Joe Delaney and a J. P. Dunbar 
interception late in the game to 
preserve the win. On the games first

from scrimmage in Demon history. 

Ranked In 
1-AA Poll 

(Prior to Saturday nighte games) 

NATCHITOCHES-Being 3-0 in 
football and being ranked seem to 
go hand-in-hand for the Nor- 
thwestern State Demons. 

The Demons, thanks to their 3-0 
record, are ranked ninth in the 
nation in the first NCAA Division 1- 
AA poll relesed this week. Not 
accidentally, the last time the 
Demons were ranked was in 1978 
when they also started the season 
with a 3-0 mark. 

"I think the ranking is a great 
thing for us," said Northwestern 
Coach A.L. Williams "Hopefully 
we can work up from our current 
positions but that depends a lot on 
how we can do this weekend." 

Currently raked No. 1 in the 
Division 1-AA ranking is Murray 
State University of Kentucky. 
Murray is also 3-0 on the season 
with its top victory being a 13-9 win 
over the University of Louisville. 

One of the Demons' opponents 
later in the season is also ranked. 
Portland State, who the Demons 
will meet in Natchitoches on 
November I, is currently tied for 
10th in the rankings with a 2-0

No Nothing 

Kind of reminds you of the line from the song - "Sign, sign, 
everywhere a sign." Rapides residents are once again told what 
they can't do. R. A.'s have put their foot down on noise in the 
dorm, but noise is allowed if any Rapides resident finds a rat or 
an oppossum. 

University Players 
Attend Festival 

By Susan Higgs Monday 
Sauce Reporter 

We stand in the parking lot of 
Kyser Hall joking, teasing each 
other, worrying about what we're 
forgetting — " I brought the shoes, 
do you want to try them?" "No, I 
found these." "Deah, do you have 
the scissors and the tape? I think 
we're going to need them." "Is the 
costume box loaded on? The tape 
recorder? Good. Load up." 

Fourteen of us, each one excited 
and a little nervous, climb in the 
NSU van and my VW. We wave 
goodbye to Dr. Black and Sally 
Carmichael who'll drive down later, 
and to those of us who aren't getting 
to go on this trip. The financial 
situation of Drama Agency excludes 
some of them from whatever we 
might learn or practice while we're 
gone. We take only the bare bones- 
-cast and Crew. 

As we drive through our campus, 
the student body is just beginning 
their second day of State Fair Week 
festivities. The only big game that 
most of them know about is the one 
on Saturday night; but, our little 
troupe has its own "big game" to 
play tomorrow, Wednesday, Oc- 
tober 15, in Baton Rouge. 

The American College Theatre 
Festival, with its state and regional 
competitions, may get less publicity 
than the NCAA in some circles; but, 
to theatre students like ourselves 
throughout the country, it is a focal 
point of the academic year. 
Colleges all over Louisiana are 
sending fourteen different shows to 
the state competition at LSU, in- 
cluding "Pippin", "Three Penny 
Opera", "Look Homeward, 
Angel", and our production of 
Ntozake Shange's "For Colored 
girls Who Have Considered Suicide 
When The Rainbow is Enuf." 

Our trip down is long and 
uneventful. In the van, they play 
word games and work on the light 
plot. In the VW we're running 
lines. Cindy Totten, Bryan Reeder, 
and I pounding away at the French 
scripts for Ionesco's "La Lecon." 
We're to perform the first ten 
minutes of the play in English and 
then in French for a Festival 
workshop. None of us is sure that 
the Academie de Francaise hasn't 
sworn out a warrant for our arrest. 

"La Lecon" is the first play that 
our department has done in French; 
and, none of us feels very secure 
about imitating French-speaking 
people. We've all had our two years 
of French, and Bryan is even 
translating the piece into English for 
the project. 

We have formed the "Theatre 
Grancaise" to bring an experience 
in the spoken language to French 
students and to put our required 
twelve hours in language into a 
framework of need rather than 
merely requirement. Throught the 
workshop performance, we hope to 
find out if there are any other 
bilingual programs going on in the 

The hotel is a little seedy, but 
cheap and close to LSU. Ray 
Schexnider, director of our 

University Theatre, meets us there. 
We stretch our legs and relax for an 
hour or so, until Dr. Black shows up 
and we go next door to dinner. 
Though we feel very festive, being 
away from school, the dinner 
conversation frequently turns to 
"Did you remember to..." and 
"I've been thinking we could..." 
Our minds are on the moring. 

The performance for the evening 
is a Playwriting Award entry 
sponsored by the LSU Lively Arts 
Committee called "The Music Wc 

It's written by two LSU students, 
Deborah Griffitts and Charley 
Vance. Mental note: If you become 
a playwright, consider 

The play turns out tobepretty cut- 
and-dried stuff and not very well 
fleshed-out. Dr. Black suggests that 
it would have been a better one act 
that a full length play. Another 
mental not: Know how to tell them 

But, LSU is never disappointing. 
Not even on your third or fourth 
festival. The union is like a car- 
nival — full of interesting places and 
tempting lists of coming events. 
Everyone vows to sneak in a few 
minutes of sightseeing tomorrow. 

Some of us have stayed behind in 
the hotel. Deah.Gulley, Cindy, and 
Michael Atkins, our technical 
director, are making last minute 
adjustments on the light plot. Four 
hours later the minor adjustments 
are still going on. 

Working on a light board in some 
strange theatre is like trying to 
decode braille with your !x>ngue. 
Which of these dimmers* is the 
cantankerous one that will blow out 
a circuit breaker? Which one of the 
instruments will short out, if pushed 
too far? 

A change has been made in a 
color. Deah is sitting on the floor 
piecing together a gel that would 
break a professional technicians 
heart. Several different shades of 
the same color are patched together 
with cellophance tape. We are 
learning how to work with a budget 
that excludes all fringes and even a 
few necessities. 

But, we are optimistic. The SGA 
voted the night before to give us 
some money for the trip. And Joe 
Stamey, who at this moment em- 
bodies Sir lancelot and Robin Hood 
in our eyes, suggested an increase in 
the Drama Agency fees in the 
future. It's good to know that 
someone else can see our problems. 

Around midnight, Sally Car- 
michael pulls into the hotel, 
exhausted from driving to Baton 
Rouge after she finished teaching 
her night classat Fort Polk. Stage 
manager for the trip, Sally checks 
on all last-minute preparations and 
counts heads as the rest of us try to 
get some sleep. 

6:30 a.m. and a fog is just 
beginning to burn away in the 
parking lot as we load up for a seven 
o'clock cail at LSU's Union 
Theatre. In the van, we joke with 
the "Colored Girls" cast to put

SUGB Meets In Secret 
For Spring 1981 Budget 

By David LaVere 
Sauce Editor 

"We'll hack the budget out 
among ourselves," said Ron 
Thomas, president of the Student 
Union Governing Board (SUGB( 
when he announced that the Union 
Board would go into a secret 
meeting to discuss the Board's 
Spring 1981 Budget following the 
SUGB's regular Tuesday night 

All non-Union Board students 
who attended the meeting were 
forced to leave the meeting in- 
cluding reporters from the Current 
Sauce and KNWD, the campus 
radio station. Money for the SUGB 
Budget comes out of student fees 
which are collected from the student 
at registration. 

When questioned via a note by 
the Current Sauce reporter if he 
could close the budget hearings to 
the public under the Louisiana Open 
Meetings Act (The Sunshine Law), 
Thomas indicated that was goingto 
close the meeting anyway. 

Other members of the SUGB 
Executive branch could not say why 
Thomas decided to close the 
meeting. When questioned by Dan 
Nance, News Director for KNWD, 
on why he closed the budget 
hearings and that he was possibly in 
violation of Louisiana law by 
closing the meeting, Thomas would 
not comment. "I talked with Mr. 
Wilson (coordinator of the Student 
Union) and my graduate assistants 
and... decided not to make a 
statement," said Thomas. 

Both the Current Sauce and 
KNWD have filed a joint complaint 
to the Student Supreme Court to 
investigate the possible violation of 
Louisiana law by the SUGB. The 
S'udent Supreme Court has also 
been called on to investigate as to 
whether Executive meeting of the 
SUGB held prior to their regular 
weekly Tuesday meetings are also in 
violation of the Open Meetings Act. 

In other SUGB news, it is official, 
the SUGB voted Tuesday night to 
bring "Texas Tradition" to NSU 
for the famed Christmas Lights 
concert. As of yet, no opening act 
has been found. At the Tuesday 
night meeting, Bill Corry, chairman 
of the SUGB's Concert Committee* 
stated that the band would cost the 
school $1500, lights and sound 
would cost $1500. Corry stated that 
the entire concert should not cost 
more than $5000. 

At the meeting, Wilson stated 
that he liked the idea of smaller 
named entertainment. Wilson also 
stated that a "new little policy" 
concerning alcohol is going into 
affect. "Please don't ask us to give 
away alcoholic beverage," said 
Wilson. Wilson was referring to the 
"Meet The Team" party at the Rec. 
Complex. Wilson advised the Board 
to always charge a little something 
for alcohol, "people will appreciate 
it." Wilson also instructed the 

Board to "make alcoholic beverages 
a secondary part of youractivities." 

Several motions were passed at 
Tuesday's meeting, several for 
events during Homecoming week. 

The SUGB' Lagnaippe committee 
will spend $1100 to bring Ed and 
Lorraine Waren to give their 
"Amityville Horror Show " on Nov . 
6, at 7 p.m. in the SU Ballroom. 
They will disuss supernatural 
happenings in the vein of the 
Amityville Horror. The movie, 
"Amityville Horror" will be shown 
following the Waren's presentation. 

On. No. 11, the Lagnaippe 
Committee will present Steve 
Gipson, a caricaturist, in the 
Student Union Cafeteria from 11 

a.m. to 1 p.m. The Committee will 
spend $600 to bring Gipson to NSU. 

The Lagnaippe Committee will 
also spend $50 to cover the expenses 
for a Rape awareness/Self Defense 
program on Oct 29, Thursday. 

The CinemaFocus Committee 
announced the following movies for 
the Spring Semester: "10", Urban 
Cowboy, Caddyshack, Animal 
House, Hero-at-Large, My 
Bodyguard, The Wiz; Wings, 
Jungle Book, the Worst Film 
Festival, and Night of the Living 

On Halloween, at midnight, the 
CinemaFocus Committee will 
present the movie "Halloween." 

Political Supporters 
Enlist NSU Students 

By Linda Verrett 
Sauce Reporter 

For the past two weeks, two 
groups of NSU students, the 
University Democrats for Carter 
and the Young Republicans have 
been campaigning on campus for 
their Presidential candidates. 

The UDC and the Young 
Republicans have made progress by 
giving out supportive bumper 
stickers, cards, and buttons. In 
addition, campaign workers have 
set up tables in the Student Union to 
distribute . informative literature 
among students. 

About 20 NSU students are 
volunteer campaign workers for the 
University Democrats for Carter. 
They are working in connection 
with Carter Headquarters on Kyser 
Avenue and with Dr. C. B. Ellis, 
chairman of the Political Action 
Committee in Natchitoches. 

Last week, the UDC passed out 
literature on campus on both Carter 
and Reagan. This week, they plan to 
campaign around Natchitoches, 
concentrating on shopping centers. 
The UDC is also assisting students 
to vote on the absentee ballot. 

According to campaign worker, 
Derik Coleman, the UDC would 
like to have a political rally and 
speaker in the near future. He says 
that they will have a representative 
from the White House staff to 
speak on campus. 

"Many people listen to reports of 
how bad our economy is goind," 
said Coleman, "but they really 
haven't understood how bad it was 
before Carter. Also, a lot of 
students at NSU are of draft age; 
before they vote, these students 
should consider the fact that Carter 
has kept us a peace for four years." 
The UDC stresses the point that 
everyone should vote, regardless 
who they vote for. 

The Young Republicans, char- 
tered three weeks ago, is made up of 
approximately 15 student workers 
with Georgia Parker as President 
and Clint Bailey as Vice-President. 
The Young Republicans are at- 
tempting to work up student 
support for Republican Presidential 
candidate, Ronald Reagan. 

Besides handing out bumper 
stickers and literature, the Young 
Republicans are operating "phone 
banks". Each volunteer worker is 
assigned a section of phone numbers 
to call and take a ballot on the 
number of people who would vote 
for Carter, Reagan or who are 
undecided. The polls will then be 
combined to get the main results. 

On Thursday, Oct. 30, the Young 
Republicans will sponsor a beer bust 
at P & rentals on Keyser Avenue 
during their opening hours. 
Students are invited to stop by and 
have free beer and discuss issues 
with Young Republican workers. 

According to Bailey, the Young 
Republicans encourage all 
Republican students to unite in 
supporting Reagan. 

"Ronald Reagan is the best man 
to be President," commented 
Bailey, "because he doesn't bow 
down to other people's demands." 
Bailey also stated that Reagan 
believes in conservative spending, 
which, according to Bailey, might 
hurt in the beginning but in the long 
run will cut back on inflation. 

No information has been received 
by the Current Sauce as to any 
campus campaigns by John An- 
derson or Ed Clark of the Liber- 
tarian Party. The Sauce does not 
endorse any one candidate, but does 
urge all students to vote for the 
candidate of their choice. 

SGA Passes $19,050 Budget 

The Student Government 
Association (SGA( passed it's Fall, 
1980 and Spring, 1981 Budget at it's 
weekly Monday night meeting, last 
week. According to Treasurer, Pat 
Wartelle, this year's budget is an 
extremely tight one. 

The SGA expects a net income of 
$19,050.63. Student Fees for the 
Summer, Fall and Spring should 
bring in $19,436.63 and a profit on 
T — shirt sales should bring in an 
additional $1000. But minus a 
$1,386.63 deficit carried over from 
1979, gives the SGA their net in- 
come of $19,436.63. 

Under the Expeditures category 
for Personal Services, $9500 goes 
for scholarships, $300 for Travel 
and $400 for office supplies, bring 
up a total of $10,200. 

Expenditures for Special Ac- 
tivities include $200 for the Spirit 
Committee, $1900 for State Fair 
and $300 for Homecoming. A total 
of $2400. 

Expeditures for Operating 
Services are $900 tor telephone, 
$5100 for Contractual Services 
(Distinguished Lecture Series), $50 
for advertising, $250 for printing 
and $150 for food, a total of $6450. 

This will bring the total ex- 
penditures for this year's SGA to 

Wartelle stated that one of the 
main expeditures for the SGA is the 
Contracual Services which is the 
Distinguished Lecture Series. 

Wartelle stressed that it is student 
money that is paying for the series 
and lamented the fact that most 
NSU students do not attend the 

Wartelle also stated that stronger 
controls will placed on the SGA 

Some BEOG Students Over-awarded 

Approximately 200 NSU students 
who entered school this fall via the 
Basic Educational Opportunity 
Grant (BEOG) program have been 
informed that they must repay 
money that was over-warded to 
them at registration. 

According to Ms. Ann McNeeley 
of the university's Financial Aid 
office, most of the students that are 
affected by the repayment are on- 
campus students. Rapayments 
range between $13 and $50. 

Students who have been notified 
that they must repay money have 
until Nov . 1 to do so. 

"At the time of registration, on 
Aug. 27, the exact value of BEOGs 
were unknown due to not having 
received the BEOG payment 
schedule," explaned Ms. McMc- 

Neeley. "Alter receiving the 
payment schedule from the U.S. 
Department of Education, it was 
found that we had over-awarded 
certain students according to their 
Eligiblity Index Number." (The 
Eligibility Index Number is a 
number which all BEOG payments 
are based on.) 

According to Ms. McNeeley, all 
students that were over-awarded 
have been contacted and have been 
given three weeks notice prior to 
Nov. 1. Ms. McNeeley stated that 
about 50 students have already paid 
back their over-award. 

Asked what would happen if 
students were unable to repay the 
over-award, Mr. McNeeley stated 
that she was waiting for a ruling that 
is coming from Washington D.C.

Is Efficiency Coming To NSU? 

Quotations From 

Editor La Vere 

SUGB Arrogance 

Friends, whether you know it or not, you got ripped off last week. No, 
not literally we can only hope, but you were ripped off when the Student 
Union Governing Board (SUGB( closed their budget hearings to all students 
that are not members of the Union Board. 

At registration, all full-time students must pay about $50 in Student Fees. 
Basically, this money is a tax that the students have voted to levy on 
themselves. Out of that money, about $10 or $1 1 goes to the SUGB. Student 
money. Your money. And when the SUGB, whose sole purpose is to benefit 
the NSU student, went into a secret meeting, which excluded even the Press, 
they were in essence telling you that it is none of your business as to how 
your money is divided up. 

The SUGB is supposed to be an organization that is accountable to the 
NSU student body. This is questionable since the officers of the SUGB are 
• not even elected by the NSU student body. Believe it or not, SUGB officers 
are elected every March by the OUTGOING Union Board. Any thinking 
student can see how a hierarchy of certain students can develop and gain 
control of the Board. 

But besides not being a truly representative form of government, the real 
crime takes place when the Board members gather together, exclude 
everyone else, and in the finest tradition of the "smoke-filled room", 
secretly divvy up the spoils. And the spoils are your money. The money you 
pay each semester. 

Whether you like the Current Sauce or not, it is our job to keep you 
informed about whats happening on campus. We realize that either you 
don't want to or don't have the time to attend SUGB meetings, so that is 
why the Sauce is there, to relieve you of the responsibility of attending the 
meetings and inform you of what happens at them. When the SUGB kicked 
the Press out of their budget hearings, it was the same as kicking you, the 
NSU student who must pay the SUGB money every semester, out. 

But even the State of Louisiana has passed safeguards on secret meetings 
of public bodies - the Open Meetings Act. It is quite possible that the SUGB 
broke Louisiana law when they closed the hearings. 

The law gives only a few reasons that a public body can hold a closed 
meeting, and discussing the budget is not one of them. If the SUGB is in 
violation of the Open Meetings Act, then the whole budget can be declared 
null and void. 

Of course, the SUGB so graciously offers to inform the students what 
their final budget will be, but the students don't know what deals were made 
to arrive at the final budget. But when we're told that it will cost $1500 to 
bring that big-riame band, Texas Tradition, to NSTJ r T6V*u^e'VJMSin!te ri 
Lights concert and $1500 for sound and lights and the whole concert won't 
cost more than $5000 (that leaves an extra $2000 for something), well , it 
does make me want to sit in on the budget hearings. When I hear the SUGB 
president, Ron Thomas say about going into the closed budget hearings - 
"we'll hack the budget out among ourselves," then that makes me doubly 
want to sit in on the meeting. 

Over the years, the SUGB has just grown too powerful. They take our 
money, ignore our pleas for quality entertainment and our wants and 
desires. We are thrown whatever scraps they feel like feeding us, and when 
we want to find out how our money is being distributed, we are rudely 
thrown out and told that the SUGB will hack it out among themselves. No 
students allowed. 

To add a little more insult to the students being ousted from the budget 
hearings, Thomas refused to comment on why he closed the meeting. What 
audacity. What gall. To slam the door in student's faces when they have the 
right to know where their money goes, the good president then refuses to 
tell the students why he closed the budget hearings. Can it be because 
Thomas feels that NSU students are not mature enough to handle the 
reason? Is he hiding something? Or can it be that the SUGB has become so 
arrogant that they can't be bothered with accountability to the NSU 

When any student supported organization comes to the point that it 
believes that it can totally disregard the students that it supposedly serves, 
something must be done. And by the SUGB's closing the budget hearings to 
the students and Thomas' refusal to explain why the meeting was closed, it 
is apparent that the SUGB has come to the point of disregarding the 
students of NSU. Something must be done. It is essential that the SUGB 
return to being accountable to the students and not being some all-powerful 
organization that can do as it pleases. 

Let me begin this weeks' column 
by asking the city of Natchitoches 
how it has the nerve to use an Indian 
on its Christmas Festival poster 
when it allows the historical marker 
honoring the Indians of the area to 
be removed by the renovators of the 
new offices of the Watson Law Firm 
without so much as a mention? 

Now, I want to discuss the 
Controller's Office one more time I 
know that in the past I have had less 
than complimentary thing to report 
about the Controller's Office. The 
office single-handedly ruined my 
credit rating last summer and during 
the early pa of this semester. 

However, it gives me great 
pleasure to congratulate Tommy 
Rhodes on the new procedure which 
his office has instituted for handing 
out student workers' checks. For a 
second I thought tha I had stumbled 
onto the wrong campus. 

Let me tell you, readers, that I 
walked to Roy Hall last Friday with 
the preconceived belief that I was on 
my way to a real run-around. The 
month before I had been told to 
check back later three times; and, 
I've been here to long to be op- 
tomistic about dealings with the 

But, surprisingly enough, my check 
was waiting for me in a very con- 
veniently placed room that had been 
clearly marked and set up with a 
form-follows-function approach. 
Three very polite University em- 
ployees treated me as if I were a real 
human being when I asked them for 
my check. 

The whole process took less than 
two minutes; but, it opened my eyes 
to the infinite possibilities for ef- 
ficiency available to NSU. 

Consider what this could lead 
to — shorter lines at registr tion; 
grades that arrive before the next 
semester begins; lock that work on 
all of the dormitories; pest control; 
and, maybe even, edible food. The 
imagination reels. 

If the rest of the administrators 

would take this kind of no-nonsense 
approach to the efficiency problems 
in their departments, dear oid NSU 
wouldn't have to be digging deeper 
and deeper into our pockets to pay 
for management mistakes. 

Of course, all of the bugs aren't 
out of the system, as evidenced by 
one of the Sauce's letters to the 
editor this week. But, Mr. Rhodes 
has made giant strides in Jjust half a 

He couldn't possibly have done 
this alone. I can see that his staff has 
risen admirably to the occasion with 
him. Let the be an inspiration to us 
all. If we don't allow the kind of an- 
hedonic behavior that feeds on past 
failures to prevent us from at- 
tempting to better our part of the 
world, all things become possible.

Doug Ireland's Notebook 

Take My Candidate - Please 

Thoughts while paddling across 
campus in my pontoon... 

...Isn't it fitting that tonight's 
presidential debate between Ronald 
Reagan and Jimmy Carter will be 
held in Cleveland? 

After all, Cleveland is the 
nation's capital when it comes to 
irresponsible government. They 
•almost had to declare bankruptcy 
because the city fathers couldn't 
grasp simple economic rules of 
thumb (i.e. don't spend more than 
you make in tax revenue). 

Tonight, each candidate will 
nobly explain why he is the best man 
to combat the nation's rapidly- 
mounting financial woes. It will all 
sound good on the surface, but you 
don't have to get too deep into the 
mess to find the flaws in what they 

Admittedly, I'm not an 
economist. But all it takes is horse 
sense to draw the lines of conflict 
between the Carter and Reagan 

Carter, riding the power of his 
incumbency to the limit, offers the 
idea that since he has already been 
in office for four years he is better 
able to understand the tangle of our 
federal goverment. Unfortunately, 
during those four years he leans on 
for credibility, Carter and his staff 
have not been able to get the job 

Reagan points to his term as 
governor of California, and the 
massive fiscal reforms he claims to 
have accomplished there. He says 
it's time for a change in 
Washington, and he has a point. 
But if memory serves me, California 
is the place where they had to rely 
on Proposition 13 to relieve the 
people of an unbelievable property 
tax burden. 

So it comes down to one basic 
question. Is it better to give an 
incumbent whose job performance 
has left a lot to be desired, another 
term? Or do you pick, for the sake 
of change, a man who, at 69, 
contradicts himself often and tries 
to please everyone?

Ah ha! The answer is Anderson, 
right? Be serious. 

His candidacy serves only as a 
comic relief in a campaign that 
already has more than its share of 
humor. He will take enough votes 
away from Carter to make it close- 
unless the Iranians decide to release 
the hostages. 

It is a tough choice to make. 
Maybe if Carter wins, since he 
won't have to worry about re- 
election in 1984, he'll actually get 

something positive done 
domestically. I'd almost bet on that. 

But Carter's foreign policy has 
our allies and opponents shaking 
their heads in wonderment. I don't 
think that's something another four 
years will be able to change. 

If Reagan is the victor, there are 
no guarantees anything will improve 
on the economic front. But foreign 
policy has to get better, and if it 
does, gradually the economy will 
bounce back in shape, too. 

They call him "Superhawk" and 
say he will get us in a war, but 
Reagan appears to have only the 
desire to play hardball with the 
Russians while avoiding any 
military conflict. Any man who asks 
for war is an unadulterated fool. 
And obviously, no man running for 
President would be so foolish. 

Reagan or Carter-it may come 
down to tonight's debate, and 
whoever can get away without 
making a mistake will be declared 
the winner... 


S.U. Noise 


October 21, 1980 

I would like to express the 
opinion of myself and I feel of some 
others using the Student Union 
Cafeteria. The atmosphere in the 
cafeteria was once compatable to 
eating comfortably (except, of 
course, for the "Disco Zoo" that 
plays an extreme amount of bass 
tones) until around a week ago when 
groups of females circled some of 
their groups tables and talked very 
loud in unison. This is very 
disturbing to a person who is eating 
not to mention studying for that big 
exam. This scene is very familiar to 
Iberville, but I paid more money 
just to get away from there and be at 
peace in the Student Union 
cafeteria. What would happen if 
everyone n the Cafeteria yelled, 
etc.? It's time for a democracy 
situation — maybe taking a vote 
from everyone with a variable meal 
ticket or something of that nature. 
The Student Union eating facilities 
would be a much better en- 
vironment with a little less noise 
including the Disco Zoo.

As one of the many students on 
campus whom Northwestern owes 
money, I would like to congratulate 
and commend the financial aid 
department, controller's depart- 
ment, computer center, and the 
business administration department 
on the fine, efficient job they are 
doing this semester in returning 
students' money. Because I am only 
a mere student, my bills seem to 
come in each month like colckwork, 
and I am expected to pay them. My 
plea of insufficient funds and "I'm 
sorry. Check back next week" does 
not seem to work on those whom I 
owe monay. 

You are probably wondering 
what this is all about. Well, the 
story goes somehting like this: 

I have two scholarships which 
enable me to ao to school: one from 

dear old NSU (for which I'm 
grateful) and one from Gulf Oil 
Corporation. By some major 
miracle, I ended up with $83.50 
extra from my Gulf scholarship 
when registration was over. Of 
course, Gulf sends the money to 
NSU and any extra funds must be 
remitted to the student by the 
school. Well, to make a long story 
short, after eight weeks I am still 
waiting. I am a very patient, 
peaceful person by nature, but I 
detest being told lies and I have 
little tolerance of incompetence. I 
have been told a minimum of six 
different stories regarding my 
refund-each one blaming a different 
person, and each one evidently a lie. 
Perhaps making this matter public 
will embarrass someone enough for 
him to take action. 

Disgusted & Disgruntled 
Damned in Distress,

P.S. Perhaps financial aid would 
like its BEOG repayments back in 
the "Same efficient manner!!!" 

No Candidate 

Editor, Current Sauce 

With the November fourth 
Presidential Election right around 
the corner I'm sure we will be 
hearing that Old saying, "vote-your 
vote counts". Well, I'd like to talk a 
little on this subject. 

Sure, everyone knows that if you 
vote your vote will be counted, but 
how much does your vote really 
count? I say not much! Why, you 
ask. Because our choices are very 
limited and neither of the three 
major candidates, in my opinion, 
are worthy of becoming a president 
of a rotary club, much less a 
President of the United States. 

Jimmy Carters record speaks for 
itself so I won't waste any of your 
print talking about him. 

Ronald Reagan's feet are always 
in his mouth, so he doesn't deserve 
any print either. 

John Anderson can't make up his 
mind wheather he is a democrat or a 
republican or an independent, so he 
doesen't deserve any print! 

Now I ask you, if all three of the 

major candidates dont have enough 
going for them to put down in print, 
why should I vote for any one of 

The point I am trying to make is 
that I don't think there is any voter 
apathy in this country. The term 
voter apathy was coined by 
politicians to cover their in- 
competence. Just as soon as we get a 
candidate worthy of our vote, the 
people of our country will vote. 
Until then, the politicians will keep 
hiding their incompetence by 
claiming voter apathy. Sincerely 
Kevin Greene

National Affairs Briefing Held 
For Concerned Christians 

By Tom Brewer 
Special to the Sauce 

State Representative Woody 
Jenkins, along with Maj. Gen. 
George Keegan, ex-Assistant Chief 
of Intelligence, USAF; Bill Smith, 
president of Pro Family Forum; and 
Dr. Charles Stanley, Pastor of First 
Baptist Church in Atlanta, Ga., 
were on hand Tuesday night, Oct. 
21, in the Rapides parish Coliseum 
for a National Affairs Briefing, 
sponsored by the Concerned 
Christians of Louisiana in co- 
operation with Religious Round- 
table, Inc. 

The meeting was held to inform 
Central Louisiana "Christians" on 
conservative political activities and 
to encourage a religious-political 

Persons attending the meeting 
were given an informational packet 
which contained over 30 pieces of 
literature, which urged Christians to 
vote a conservative ticket in the up- 
coming election. 

Jenkins, who spoke early in the 
meeting, complained of the "liberal 
news media" which he feels opposes 
politically-oriented Christians 
because they are conservative. 

Smith of the Pro Family Forum 
stated at the meeting the "state is 
getting in the church's area" and 
that Christians should "tell the 
government to leave morals to 
us... We are the conscience of the 

Keegan, who has predicted that 
the Soviets will have developed a 
deam weapon by the mid-1980's, 
said that the world is on the "eve of 
the greatest conflict in history." 
Keegan credited the success of the 
American Revolution to American 
Christians and "lay evangelical 
itinerant preachers, who took up 
rifles and bayonets" and fought 
with the American Christians during 
the Revolution. 

During his address, Keegan also 
stated that the U.S. could only 
inflict death on about 5 million 

Keegan urged that the U.S. build 
up it's navy, bring in the B-l 
bomber and build up science. The 

general stated that if the U.S. does 
this then "we can warn the Soviets 
that one more infrigment on a free 
land will cost them a dear price in 
non-nuclear combat." 

Stanley, who was the Briefing's 
keynote speaker, called for 
Americans to stand-up and be 
counted and urged for the political 
reform as advocated by several 
"Christian groups." 

Stanley, who is a Southern 

Baptist, declared that "we are going 
to see the destruction of this 

Upon leaving the meeting, this 
reporter was admonished by a 
professing Christian that long hair 
leads to homosexuality. 

Approximately 500 people 
showed up at the meeting, which 
advocated political reform throught 
political conservatism and a union 
of church and state.

them at ease. But, they've got any 
nervousness they may be feeling 
well in control; and, not even the 
early hour can distract them from 
what is coming. 

The LSU crew is waiting for us on 
the stage. We take a moment to 
marvel at their space, their 
equipment, and their decor. Our 
new facilities will be even nicer than 
this, we whisper to each other. 

And then, it begins— the task for 
which we have been trained. 
Everyone grabs the equipment from 
the van and lapses into the language 
of the stage. "Bring in that No. 3 
batten." "Heads up, legs coming 
in." "Shutter that in." "First 
electric, fuzz it." 

The first fifteen minutes are 
stilted. We're trying to impress the 
LSU students with our 
professionalism and our expertise; 
and, they're trying to do the same to 
us. It's a draw. 

The girls go downstairs to dress 
and practice. The leotards are 
donned. Red for Sonya Lewis, 
yellow for Lynette Stephenson, 
green for Kathy Jones, purple for 
Robbie Lee, orange for director, 
Sandra Helton, brown for Linda 
Cooksey, and blue for Ardrea 
Williams. In the makeup mirror, 
they are all beautiful and excited 
and ready. 

The rich sound of their singing 
floats up the staris, as the canvas 
floor is being laid down. The 
hydraulic lift orchestra pit is 
lowered to create a level, and the 
rail around the pit is lifted out. 
Stairs are pushed into place. 

"Do they know that we don't 
have our own building?" someone 
asks. Suddenly, our set seems lost 
in the huge Union Theatre. The 
colored banners go up in the back 
and things look better. Some time 
during the setting of the lights the 
stage begins to feel more like home. 

I listen to Deah and Cindy 
directing the LSU students who are 
in the catwalks adjusting the lights. 
They sound just right. This is what 
it will be like someday when all the 
training is over. Later Deah admits, 
"I was afraid I'd say "Fuzz it, 
that's good," and he wouldn't have 
done anything yet." 

Cliff Teasley is stapling down the 
last banner as Schexnider checks its 
placement. In the wings my 
husband, Terry Monday cues up his 
sound tape while Sally takes one last 
look at everything and tests the 
headphones. The cast stands 
nervously in the wings. Soon, it will 
be their turn to prove themselves. 

They represent not only NSU, but 
the members of the black com- 
munity of Natchitoches who 
donated funds for the trip. The 
First Baptist Church of North 
Street, the Asbury Methodist 
Church and several private donors 
have shown their support for these 
women and our program. In the 
theatre we call them "angels," and 
they make all things possible. 

Those of us who don't have jobs 
backstage slip into the crowd of 
people entering the theatre. They 
are mostly college and high school 
students, still quiet from the early 
hour. We spot the judges settling in 
behind their notepads as the lights 
begin to dim. 

Early into the show, a lamp burns 
out leaving a dark spot down-stage 
left for the girls to work around. 
But nothing can be done. The 
sound comes blasting out of the 
immense speakers over the 
audience. Cliff jumps up, slips 
quietly into the lobby, and then 
races backstage to tell Terry. 

"I can't bring it down, I don't 
have any control." Cliff makes 
another dash to the back of the 
house. On stage, Robbie Lee is 
straining to be heard over the music. 
Finally, he finds the preamp and 
the volume comes down.

The play moves on. Linda 
Cooksey, who has only been part of 
the cast for a week, wins the 
audience with her portrayal of a 
little girl who idolizes toussaint 
L'Ouverture. They laugh and then 
applaud as she leaves the stage. 

Next morning, the Baton Rouge 
Morning Advocate will say, 
"Cooksey's little girl and imaginary 
playmate. the show stopper." 

By the end of the show the 
audience is thoroughly awake and 
the applause is heartfelt-for a 
second competition is put aside and 
replaced with admiration. We 
scramble down the stairs to 
congratulate them, particularly 
Sandra Helton, the first student 
director to take a NSU show to 
festival. All of them are talking at 
once. They have done well and they 
feel it. 

Ed Cullen of the Advocate is 
waiting downstairs to interview the 
girls. The LSU cast members stop 
by. In three hours, they will per- 
form the very same play, in the 
same theatre, and in front of the 
same judges. 

After lunch, we meet in the 
theatre to watch the LSU 
production. It is flashy and well 
choreographed but not as gutsy as 
ours. Their own tech problems 
arise — a broken leotard strap and a 
loud pop before each sound cue. 

They show us things that we 
hadn't seen before. Things that the 
girls will want to consider before 
they open the show at the Nat- 
chitoches Community Arts Center 
on October 28. 

The LSU cast gets a standing 
ovation. The audience is more in 
the spirit of the thing by now and, 
of course, they enjoy home court 
advantage. Our cast runs backstage 
to lavish praise on the LSU cast, 
before hurrying off to the Regency 
Room to hear the judges' critique of 
their production. 

Now, it is my turn in the dressing 
room. Cindy, Bryan, and I 
scramble into our costumes and go 
over out lines again. When Sally 
has given us final inspection, we go 
to investigate the Union Colonnade 
where we will perform. The 
Colonnade is small enough to put 
me at ease. A homey little theatre, 
like a high school auditorium. 

Dr. Black listens to us go through 
the scene one last time before the 
audience arrives. The audience is 
small; but, we are used to that. Dr. 
Black gives an introduction. He 
talks about the importance of 
French dramaturgy and the state's 
French heritage. He doesn't 
mention the month that he spent 
this summer in Paris studying at the 
Alliance Francaise to refresh his 
French or the time spent viewing all 
the different types of French theatre 
available. But, it will show. 

During the English part the 
audience laughs at the jokes and 
applauds politely as we switch over 
to the French. The first moment is 
like trying a new food. They are 
restless and fidget and whisper to 
each other. But, the joke comes up 

again and, lo and behold, they laugh 
again. They're getting it. 

At the end of the piece, they 
aplaud and continue to applaud as 
we take a few bows. Dr. Black asks 
for questions but no one has any, so 
we run back to the dressing rooms, 
relieved. Vive la Dr. Rubino! Vive 
la Mr. Wertelaers! Vive la France! 

The others meet us backstage. 
"How was it?" we ask them. "It 
, was kind of neat." "I was sur- 
prised." "But, did you get it?" 
"Most of it." "I think they were all 

Then the girls from the other cast 
crowd into the room with news 
about their critique. The judges 
liked it. They understood the style. 
They liked the set. They didn't like 
the blackouts. They thought that 
each one had done well. 

It's 5:30 and everyone is tired and 
hungry. The costumes are put back 
in the van; and, we drive off in 
search of pizza. During supper, we 
recount each tense moment of the 
day. Sharing observations, 
debating fine points, and already 
talking about next year. 

Eight o'clock finds us back at 
LSU for Nicholls State's production 
of Sam Shepard's "Buried Child." 
It is the only other member of the 
competition that we will get to see. 
Though the festival goes on until 
Sunday, forty-eigth hours is all the 
time that we can afford. Back at 
school, there are four other shows in 
various stages of rehearsal that have 
to be resumed. 

In the back of the auditorium, we 
buzz with observations about the 
play we're watching. "Boy, I wish I 
could get a crack at that part." 
"What a great set." "Nice sound." 

"They should do that lightning 
differently." We are not going to 
know if the judges see it our way. 

Sitting in the greasy spoon across 
the street from the hotel, we order 
breakfast and try to get ready for 
the long ride home. Someone brings 
in an Advocate and the squeals 
begin. "Every girl in the show has 
her moment. The show's ending is 
powerful, full of hope, moving." 
For most of the cast, it is their first 
time to be reviewed in a paper. 
They read it over and over, savoring 
the praise and reconciling them 
selves to the criticism. 

It will be quite a while before we 
find out which play has been 
determined as "most represen- 
tative" by the judges. But, to us, it 
is the performance itself that is the 
most important. Taking the show 
out on the road, all be it a short one, 
and being seen by our peers are the 
real rewards of every festival. 

Back in the cars again by eleven 
and on the road. In the van Cindy 
and Deah are going over their lines 
for "Shadow Box" which will open 
Monday. Studying begins for the 
mid-terms still to come and we 
become students again. Not quite

become — but, close to it. Very

Chippewas Hand Demons Third Loss Of Season 

by Mike Gallien 
Sauce Asst. Sports Editor 

The Central Michigan Chippewas scored touchdowns 
on their first two possessions of the ballgame and added 
a second quarter field goal to top the Northwestern 
Demons 17-0 at Perry Shorts Stadium in Mount 
Pleasant, Michigan Saturday afternoon. 

The Chips used two long drives and a stout defense to 
hand the Demons their third loss in the past four weeks. 
The shutout made it eight straight quarters against the 
Chippewas that the Demons have failed to score. 

A crowd of 21,555 saw the Michiganders completely 
dominate the Demons in the first half. The Nor- 
thwestern squad, behind starting quarterback Eric 
Barkley managed just 16 yards and one first down in the 
first half against the stiff Chippewa defense. 

The Demons took the opening kickoff back to their 
own 22. Barkley, who hit just two of eight passes for 
four yards in one half of play, threw a pair of in- 
completions and another shortcompletion before the 
Demons punted the ball away. 

Central Michigan took over at its own 38 and used 10 
plays to cover the yardage to the goal line. The 
Tribesmen converted two third down plays on the drive 
to retain possession. Running back Willie Todd capped 
the drive with a nine-yard dash off right tackle for the 

CMU kicker Novo Bojovic added the point-after to 
make it 7-0 with almost 10 minutes remaining on the 
first period clock. 

The Demons could do nothing with the ball after the 
kickoff and punted after three plays for three yards. 

CMU took over at its own 39 and began another long 
scoring drive. The key play of the drive was a third-and- 
seven pass completion from the Demon 46. 

Chippewa quarterback Kevin Northup, six of 10 for 
96 yards in the contest, dropped back and hit wide 
receiver Jamie Jackson for a 26-yard gain and a first 
down at the Demon 20. 

Two plays later, following a personal foul flag 
against Northwestern, running back Reggie Mitchell 
swept the left end for the second CMU score. Bojovic 
added the extra point to give CMU a 14-0 lead with 
almost five minutes still on the first quarter clock. 

After another four fruitless downs for the Demons, 

the Chippewas again drove into Northwestern territory 
early in the second stanza. The defense tightened at the 
19 and Bojovic's 36-yard field goal try was wide to kill 
the threat. 

After a Demon turnover and a pair of punts, the 
Chippewas staged an impressive 15-play, 69-yard drive 
to add to their *;ad. 

Using over six minutes to drive to the Demon eight, 
Bojovic booted through a 25-yard field goal with a 
minute-and-a-half to go in the half. 

The big play of the drive was a fourth-and-eight con- 
version from the Demon 28. On the play, Northup 
again completed a big pass, this time for 18 yards to 
keep the drive alive. 

The Demons finally got the offense rolling in the 
second half, but big plays by the CMU defense main- 
tained the shutout for the Chippewas. 

After a short Michigan punt on its first possession of 
the second half, the Demons mounted their first drive 
of the ballgame. 

Behind backup quarterback Bobby Hebert, who 
turned in an impressive second half performance hitting 
on 13 of 27 attempts for 156 yards in his two quarters of 
action, drove the Demons to the Chippewa nine-yard 

After a pair of incompletions and a thwarted running 
play though, the Demons had been pushed back to the 
1 1 . Sophomore kicker Dale QuickeFs 28-yard field goal 
try was wide to the left to leave the Demons frustrated. 

After the ball changed hands a few times, the 
Demons again found themselves with a scoring op- 
portunity early in the final period. 

On a second down pass play from the Michigan 36, 
Hebert found tailback Tony Green on a screen pass. 
Green appeared to have clear sailing into the end zone, 
but collided with a teammate at the CMU 1 1 to hold the 
gain to 25 yards. 

The Demons could do nothing with the field position 
and turned the ball over on downs. 

After picking up a Chip fumble at the 46, the Demons 
again drove deep into CMU territory only to again come 
up empty handed. 

bwith a first-and-five at the Michigan 15, the Demons 
managed to get two yards on a first down run. Two 
Bobby Hebert passes fell incomplete to leave the 
Demons with a fourth-and-three at the 13. 

After a time out, Hebert attempted to hit fullback 

Carlton Finister for the first down, but the ball fell 
harmlessly to earth to destroy the Demons' final hopes 
of scoring. 

Central Michigan used a ball control drive to eat up 
the remaining 5:46 to end the ballgame. 

Despite a brilliant defensive effort by the Demon 
defense in the second half, Central Michigan dominated 
the ballgame statistically. 

The Chippewas outgained the Demons 430-187 in the 
game, with the biggest difference coming on the ground. 
The Michiganders rolled through the Demon defenders 
for 330 yards on the ground, while the Demons could 
muster just 27 yards on 25 rushing attempts in the 

All-America running back' Joe Delaney was held in 
check, accumulating just 12 stripes in 10 tries. Finister 
was the leading ground gainer for NSU with 23 yards on 
7 totes. 

About the only bright spot for the Demon offense 
besides Hebert was senior wide receiver Randy Liles. 
The Oil City native grabbed six aerials for 81 yards in 
the contest. 

Three Demon defenders were in double figures in the 
tackling department against the ball-control minded 
Chippewas, who held the ball for nearly 38 minutes to 
just 22 for Nortwestern. 

Defensive back Steve Graf led all taeklers with 15 
stops, and was followed closely by linebacker Mike 
Camden with 14 and defensive end David Grappe, who 
added 13 putdowns. 

The Demons hope to get back on the winning track 
Saturday night as they begin a three-game homestand 
against Neil "The Mad Bomber" Lomax and the 
Portland State Vikings. Lomax and his mates routed an 
absolutely hapless Cal.-Poly-Pamona 93-7 Saturday in 
an aerial circus. Game time is 7 p.m. 

Making the Catch 

Don Sepulvado 

Northwestern wide receiver Randy Liles 
bobbles this second half pass before making 
the grab as tailback Tony Green (18) looks on 
in the Demons 17-0 loss to the Central 
Michigan Chippewas in Mount Pleasant, 

Michigan Saturday. The senior end was the 
Demons leading receiver in the contest, 
making six catches for 81 yards against the 
powerful Michiganders. Liles is the Demons 
leading receiver on the year.

Beat LSU in Semi-Finals 

NSU Netters Sweep 
Elks Club Tourney 

Northwestern's promising tennis 
team swept top honors this past 
weekend in the first annual NSU 
Elks Club Sponsored Tennis 
Tournament held at the NSU Tennis 

The NSU netters disposed of 
Nicholls St. in the finals after taking 
one of its biggest wins ever in the 
semifinals, a 6-3 decision over 
highly-ranked LSU. 

The Demons whipped Nicholls 6- 
2 in the finals, using four victories in 
singles play and two more in 
doubles to do the trick. 

No. 1 seeded Alfredo Trullenque 
was the only NSU casualty in singles 
play as he dropped a 6-2, 7-6 
decision to Raul Mendez. After 
that, however, it was all Demons. 

Hajo Haakkart took a tough 
three-set win over Mikel Stripple to 
give NSU its first win in the finals. 
Haakkart won 6-7, 6-2, 6-3 to get 
the Demon win going. 

Donnie Lovo had little trouble in 
his match with Joan Chin 
Munkhammar, downing the 
Nicholls opponent 6-2, 6-0. 

Also having an easy time of it was 
Jorge Salkeld, who took a 6-3, 6-1 
win over Neal Carmichael. 

Newcomer Wynard Wessels 
rounded out the NSU singles wins as 
he went three sets with Jan Fredman 
before triumphing 6-2, 4-6, 6-4. 

Haakkart and Salkeld teamed up 
for one of the two NSU doubles 
wins as they took a 6-3, 6-3 decision 
over Mendez-Stripple. Lovo- 
Wessels accounted for the other 
win, a 6-3, 4-6, 6-2 win over Car- 

Iker Ortiz and Lytt Allen fell to 
Fredman-Juan Hidalgo as the only 
loss in doubles for the Demon 
netters. The Nicholls duo came out 
a 7-5, 6-3 winner. 

NSU tennis coach Johnnie 
Emmons was more than pleased 
with his team's early-season 
showing, particularly the win over 
a tough LSU team. 

"The guys just played some great 
tennis in this tournament and the 
win over LSU shows what kind of 
team we are expecting this year," 
the veteran NSU net coach said. 
"We are expecting big things this 
year and this win certainly gives us a 
big lift heading into the 1981 

In the big win over LSU, it was a 
sweep of the doubles matches that 
made the difference. 

Haakkart-Salkeld got one of the 
wins as they whipped Fenlon-Clark 
of LSU 1-6, 6-2, 7-5. Lovo- Wessels 
got the second NSU win with their 
2-6, 6-4, 7-6 triumph over Winslow- 

The third NSU doubles win was 
also a three-setter as Ortiz-Allen 
took a 6-3, 1-6, 6-3 win to complete 
the doubles sweep. 

In singles, the two teams split 3-3, 
with Trullenque, Lovo and Wessels 
all victims of the talented LSU 
singles players. 

Trullenque was a victim to 
Aguero by a 5-7, 6-1,6-1 score while 
Lovo fell to Viator 6-3, 6-3. Wessels 
dropped a 6-1, 6-4 decision to 

Ortiz picked up one of the three 
NSU wins in singles play against the 
Bengals as he downed Fenlon in a 7- 

6, 7-5 thriller while Haakkart went 
three sets to overtake Clarke 7-5, 5- 

7, 6-2. 

Salkeld got the other win with a 
relatively easy 6-2, 6-3 win over 

NSU got untracked and headed 
toward the tournament's cha- 
mpionship with an 8-1 win over 
Stephen F. Austin. 

NSU posted three doubles wins 
and five singles win in that first- 
round match. 

Ortiz got things started with a 6-4, 

6- 1 victory over Ron Centrone while 
Trullenque followed with a 6-7, 6-3, 

7- 5 decision over Tom Caine. 
Haakkart added to the NSU 

singles wins as he disposed of Gary 
Pepper 6-3, 6-3 while Salkeld 
defeated Tony Cruz 6-2, 6-4 and 
Wessels took Bret Arrant 6-4, 6-2. 

Lovo was the only loser in singles 
for the Demons as he fell in a 
heartbreaker to Tridie Gotswami 6- 
3, 3-6, 6-2. 

Lovo did not let that loss phase 
him and he got his revenge in the 
doubles, where he teamed with 
Wessels for a 6-4, 6-4 win over 

Haakkart-Lovo overpowered 
Centrone-Caine 6-4, 6-1 to all but 
wrap up the win for NSU while 
Ortiz-Allen finished off the opening 
victory with a 7-6, 7-6 double- 
tiebreaker win over Cruz-Arrant.

Gallien, Stamey Win Picks; LSU, New Orleans Reinstated 

Incensed over allegations of 
incompetence in the last week's 
issue of the SAUCE, Mike Gallien 
stormed through the prediction 
processes and came thorough with a 
7-3 worksheet and a new personal 
low for the rest of the panel, who, 
with the exception of David Stamey, 
all trailed him. 

Not only was Gallien infuriated 
by the incompetence reports, he was 
also disgusted by the one week 
probation imposed on New Orleans. 

In a measure of radical Gallien 
predicted, for the first time this 
year, that the Saints would lose 42- 
10 against Los Angeles. 

Joining Gallien with top honors 

this week was David Stamey who of the remaining five by not

The regular seasn for flag 
football ended last Thursday, with 
the playoffs being held this week to 
decide the four teams that will go to 
Turpin Stadium to determine the all 
camnus champions. 

The Steelers and Conine both 
finished the regular season with 8-1 

Portland State, Neil Lomax, Invade Turpin 

Due to deadlines this story is written 
without benefit of stats from 
PSU's seventh game . 

It is going to be a battle of the 
airways when the Portland State 
University Vikings visit Turpin 
Stadium for a 7:00 encounter with 
the Demons Saturday night. 

The Vikings (5-2) bring one of the 
most, if not the most, explosive 
offense ever to be seen in Turpin 
Stadium. Their All-Everything 
quarterback, Neil Lomax, has 
demolished almost every existing 
record for a passing quarterback 
since time began. In his first six 
games Lomax had thrown for 2,199 
yards and 15 touchdowns for a 
completion percentage of .629% 
and a average of 366.5 yards a game 
while sharing the signal calling 
duties with two other quarterbacks. 

During his four year carreer at 
PSU, Lomax has thrown for over 
11,500 yards and 85 touchdowns. 
He has attempted a phenomenal 
1415 passes and completed 819 for a 
.579% and has only thrown 50 
interceptions for an average of 
roughtly one interceptoon for every 
28.3 passes that he throws. 

However Lomax is not all the 
offense that PSU posses. Only most 
of it. There are some other faces on

to Vikings team that do bear 
mention. The Viking leading rusher 
has been Sigel who has rushed for 
over 300 yards thus far and is 
averaging a whopping 50 yards per 
game. The Vikes next leading 
rusher has carried the pigskin four 
times for 66 yards and an 11 yards 
per game average. 

However, in the receiving 
department, where the big yardage 
is produced, Clint Didier has more 
yards in receiving as the entire team 
of running backs does in rushing. 
He is the Division 1-AA leader in 
receptions with 44 for 664 yards and 
six touchdowns. He is averaging 
over 100 yards per game in 

The PSU pass-catchers have six 
men behind Didier who have all 
caught at least 100 yards worth of 
passes this year. They range from 
Simantel with 364 yards to Peterson 
with just under 150. There are still 
six others behind them who have 
caught passes making that 13 people 
who have a reception for the Vikes. 

Defensively there is somewhat of 
a question mark about the PSU'ers. 
The Vikings have given 59 points to 
Idaho St. and 37 to Idaho while 
giving up an averaged of just over 
24 points a game to their opponents. 

Kickoff time is set for 7:00 at 
Turpin Stadium for the Demon- 
Viking game so do not forget to be 
there and help the Demons to their 
sixth victory in nine starts. 

records in the men's independent 
division. The Steelers will go into 
the playoffs the first place team by 
virtue of their win over Conine. All 
alone as the third place team will be 
the Jocks with a 7-2 record. There is 
a big tie for the final playoff 
position. The Univ. of Yang, the 
Brotherhood, and GDI Omen all 
finished with 5-4 records, and no 
team held two victories over the 
other two teams. There will be a 
playoff to determine who will go 
into the championship series as the 

fourth place team. 

In tne men's greek division four 
teams will advance to the playoffs. 
The regular season champion, 
Kappa Sigma (8-0) will take on the 
fourth place team, the Southern 
Gents (5-3). The other playoff game 
will match Kappa Alpha (7-1) 
against Phi Beta Sigma (6-2). 

TNT finished the regular season 
undefeated with a 6-0 record and 
will go into the women's in- 
dependent division playoffs as the 
first place team. The two teams that 
finished in a tie for second place

the pan. An agreement was reached 
with Stovall last night around 
midnight whereby the Tigers would

The Lady Demons return four 
starters from last season's 19-17 team 
including leading scorer Joan

Easy Registration 
Opens Semester 

After spending years of suffering 
through long lines and crowded 
conditions at registration, students 
this semester were treated to a 
relatively painless registration 

In years past, NSU had often 
attempted to find ways to speed up 
the registration procedure and clear- 
up bottlenecks that appeared at 
various stages of registration. Last 
semester, the university attempted a 
one-day registration in the Health 
and PE building, but was deemed 

This semester, for the most part, 
student flow into the Coliseum's 
arena was orderly, the registration 
stages were not crowded, and lines 
move quickly. 

"This was the best registration 
we've ever had," commented Dr. 
Austin Temple, Registrar. "The 
average wait for the student from 
the time they entered the arena until 
they paid their fees was about 35 
minutes." Temple owed the im- 
provements to a more controlled 
flow of students and the offering of 
more classes in the evening. 

Most students seemed to find 
things at a little slower pace this 
semester also. 

"It was real smooth. No such 
thing as standing in the Financial 
Aid line for an hour," said 
Margaret Lonadier, a 3-2, from 

"Much better than last semester. 
Much better. Just doesn't seem to 
be as many people here," said Terry 
McComb, a second-semester Senior 
from Pineville. 

"Well run," commented Paul 
Jarzabek, a sophomore. "Seems to 
be running well, but I think it's 
because there are less students. But 
it's a lot better than thzt one-dav 

mess at the PE building last 

But not all students found 
registration a carefree experience. 

"I think it stinks," said Pamela 
Pratt, a first-semester sophomore 
from Natchitoches. "Standing in 
line, being the last one and not 
getting the classes you want." Ms. 
Pratt felt that something needed to 
be done with the alphabet system 
that allows people into the arena to 
get their class cards. 

"All the classes were closed that 
I needed, but it's working out. This 
is a lot better than last semester, 
definitely," said Kenny Maggio, a 
3-1 from Natchitoches. 

"Too slow. I think that they 
should let the students go through 
faster. They're having a half-hour 
for every letter of the alphabet," 
said Senior Mike Barton. 

Faculty and staff seemed to find 
registration running smoothly also. 

"Seems fine to me," commented 
Jenny Lou Cochran of the Home 
Economics Department. "We 
haven't really had any trouble. They 
haven't been letting people through 
all at once... we haven' had herds of 
people all at once." 

"Its been so much better," stated 
Elizabeth Cox of Financial Aid. 
"We didn't have any lines today 
(Wednesday) at all. Having it two 
days makes it better. They're 
sticking to the schedule pretty close. 
That has made a big difference for 

President Rene Bienvenu also felt 
that registration went well this 
semester. According to President 
Bienvenu, checking the flow of 
students into the arena for class 
cards was the main ingredient in the 
smooth registration. 

Bookstore Blues 

While registration went smoothly, large 
crowds did pack the bookstore. Many students 
were hit with the Bookstore Blues due to high 
prices for many books and the unavailability 

of many much needed texts. Students should 
continue to check at the bookstore for late 
arriving books. 

Dorm Rules A nger Residen ts 

Christopher Cross Slated 
For February Concert 

Christopher Cross, professional 
singer and songwriter, made famous 
for his hit single "Sailing," has set a 
date with the SUGB Concert 
Committee to perform in Prather 
Coliseum on Feb. 1 1 . 

Although contracts have yet to be 
signed, President of the SUGB, Ron 
Thomas, made the announcement 
of Cross' date public at the weekly 
meeting of the Board, held on 
Tuesday, Jan. 13. 

Cross will receive $16,000 plus the 
first $2,500 in gate receipts for his 
stay in Natchitoches, however, 
ticket prices for the concert have not 
been set. Thomas stated he ex- 
pected the prices to be between five 
and seven dollars. 

In other SUGB business, it was 
announced that seven open com- 
mittee chairman seats would be 
filled as soon as possible. The seats 
are open because as the end of the 
Fall '80 session came, most of the 
committee chairmen resigned. 

Bill Corry of the Concert 
Committee will remain part-time to 
help out, but is definitely resigning, 
according to Board First Vice- 
President Archie Anderson. Angela 
Guillary who heads the Lagniappe 
Committee fell sick early last 
semester and resigned her seat. 

Ramonde Honore, committee 
chairperson to Fine Arts failed to 
return to the Board, causing her seat 
to be in the need of refilling. Debbie 
McClung, a student representative 
resigned to become a member of the 
newly formed pom-pom line. 

Becky Duke, LOB Director, 
graduated, leaving her seat empty. 
Susie Hubbard, SUGB Program 
Director missed three meetings and 
was a sked to resign. 

David Martin, who previously 
was SUGB Parliamentarian, handed 
the Board his resignation last 
semester when he was assigned to 
the Student Supreme Court. 

All of the posts will be filled as 
soon as possible, and Thomas said, 
"the sooner the better." 

Finally, about midway through 
the meeting, a note was read to the 
Board by Alicia Haynes, stating that 
the Mickey Steele Band could not be 
able to play at this semester Howdy 
Dance. The lead singer to the band 
apparently came down with a severe 
case of the flu and had to be 
hospitalized. This gave the Board 
about 24 hours to find another 
band. One Board member suggested 
having a sing-a-long instead. The 
Board, no doubt, decided to find 
another band and came up with a 
band called "Infinity."

At one time Varnado Hall on the 
NSU campus may have been 
considered the "in" dorm to be 
assigned to. Being a dorm with the 
largest rooms on campus, Varnado 
room assignments were to be 
treasured as a rare jewel. However, 
now it is being said among Varnado 
residents that it would be more 
desirable to move out than in. 

Why? Several rules put into ffect 
by the Office of Housing and en- 
forced by the dorm's House 
Directors have been met with 
discontent by the residents. 

Rules such as no smoking, eating, 
or drinking in the lobby, closing the 
TV— game room at midnight, 
restricting the moving of the fur- 
niture in the lobby, and no musical 
instruments in the halls or lobby 
have dorm residents upset and ready 
for change. 

According to Becky Brown, 
Coordinator of Housing, the rules 
are necessary to preserve the life of 
the furniture in the recently 
renovated lobby and to keep the 
dorm quiet, as it is primarily a study 

The residents have complained 
that the lobby was locked, 
presumably permanently, after a 
chair was stolen last semester and 
that a petition had to be circulated 
and presented to Housing officials 
to open the lobby. 

Ms. Brown said that the lobby 
was closed "only for a couple of 
days" and that a petition was not 
presented but that representatives 
from the dorm came to her office 
and aired their complaint. She 
added that it was her idea to close 
the lobby for a few days to prevent 
further theft and she had planned to 
open it again anyway. Residents, in 
addition to getting an open lobby 
again, also received a television set 
which previously had not been 

Residents argue that the furniture 
cannot be moved according to 
another rule in ffect. Ms. Brown' 
explained that "the furniture is 
arranged for studying, con- 
versation, and TV viewing as the 
decorator arranged it. I'm not 
against moving chairs a little to get a 
better view of the TV, however, 
whole scale moving of the furniture 
would shorten its life eventually." 

She added that moving the 
furniture would also interfere with 
electrical outlets installed in the 
floor for the use of study lamps. 

Residents are also in an uproar 
over the fact that RA's (resident 
assistants) must watch over the 
lobby, giving them the feeling that 
they are being spied on. 

Ms. Brown responded that RA's 
were put on this "patrol" last 
semester after the theft of the chair 
to enforce the rules of no eating, 
drinking, or smoking, and also to 
preserve a quiet atmosphere. Ms. 
Brown also said that this semester 
she had stopped them from wat- 
ching the lobby other than the usual 
observation for safety and 
disciplinary reasons. She stressed 
that RA's in all dorms must keep an 
eye open, that it was part of their 

Dorm residents were disgruntled were put up. 

enough to string barbed wire around 
the dorm and hang signs 
proclaiming Varnado Hall to be 
another "Stalag 13." The items 
were taken down soon after they 

Ms. Brown expressed her hope 
that the air would be cleared of all 
grievances at last night's meeting of 
the entire dorm.

New TV and Music Listening Lounge Unveiled 

Kevin Greene 
Sauce Reporter 

At a cost of nearly $20,000 and 
two years of planning and con- 
struction, NSU students were 
allowed a sneak preview of the new 
T.V. Viewing and Music Listening 
Lougne located in the Student 
Union lobby. 

Probably the most elaborately 
designed recreation/entertainment 
center on this campus, "The Ad- 
dition," as it is aptly named, is the 
brainchild of the Research and 

Development Committee of the 
Student Union Governing Board, 
currently headed by Board First 
Vice-President, Archie Anderson. 

"The Addition" was shown off 
by the Board Wednesday night 
during this semester's Howdy 
Dance, an event also sponsored by 
the SUGB. A multitude of curious 
students mobbed the place, each 
grabbing headsets or sitting in front 
of television sets. 

As its name implies, "The Ad- 
dition" is equipped with both 
television viewing and music 
listening devices. The entire layout 
of the room, designed free of charge 
to the students by Natchitoches 
architect, Harold DeKeyser, in- 
cludes wall to wall carpeting, three 
television sets, (one equipped with 
headset channels), and 20 to 25 

music headsets. Each headset is 
equipped with volume control and 
six channels, each channel playing 
various types of music. 

Inside the control room lies the 
heart of the lounge. A massive 
control board operates a host of 
music producing devices including 
two cassette players, two album 
turntables, an am/fm radio, and a 
reel-to-reel type cassette recorder. 

The cost of the room was ap- 
proximately $20,000 and much of 
the labor was furnished, not by 
outside contractors, but with 
student and maintenance workers 
furnished by the University. Most 
of the materials used for the room, 
with the exception of the lavish 
carpeting and draperies, were paid 
for out of the SUGB budget, which 
is comprised of student fees. 

"The Addition" was designed to 
supply students between classes and 
commuters waiting for buses with a 
comfortable environment, ac- 
companied with relative en- 
tertainment, and preliminary in- 
dications point to imm diate and 
overall success. 

An opening date for the Addition 
has not been set because of a lack of 
student workers to man the control

asked if this might pose a problem, 
Robert Wilson, Director of Student 
Services stated that, "it may affect 
us." He went further to add, "We 
want good quality people who we 
can depend on. Not just anyone off 
the street can run this operation." 

The lounge is temporarily 1 
scheduled to be open for T.V. 
viewing between the hours of 8 a.m. 
and 11 a.m., with an attendant to 
operate the listening devices bet- 
ween 1 1 a.m. and 10 p.m. 

When asked if the lounge would 
be opened on weekends, Wilson 
stated, "If there is a demand for it 
we will open it, but if there isn't 
sufficient demand, we won't. 

The only policy, as of yet, made 
on students who use the lounge is 
that no smoking, eating, or drinking 
will be allowed inside the room. 
According to Wilson, in the future a 
television may be placed outside the 
carpeted area where students who 
wish to smoke, eat or drink may do 

The first activity planned for the 
lounge is that of Video Awareness 
Week, which will take place during 
Feb. 2-8. During that week, four 
video-tapes will be shown ranging in 
topics from a comedy called Reefer 
Madness, to a documantary on the 
life of Martin Luther King to be 
shown during or around Black 
History Week. 

To get into the lounge, students 
will be asked to present their current 
NSU I.D. card, and headsets will be 
issued with an I.D. as a deposit.

Caspar \ Dorm 

After concluding their successful 
1980 football season, the residents 
of Caspari dorm have remained 
active by participating in various 
activities sponsored by their new 
House Director, Craig Myers. 

Over half of the team attended a 
showing of the movie 
"Deliverance" starring Burt 
Reynolds in late November. The 
packed lobby included several of the 
players dates. A hotly contested 
backgammon tournament was the 
next event, carried over from the 
Fall semester, with the finals to be 
played early in January. Players 
still in the running for the $20 first 
prize are Joe Delaney, Jerry

Can The New Moral Right Be Wrong? 

Quotations From 

Editor La Vere 

Buckeye'n The Feds 

The Dance of the Duelling Judges has overflowed out of Rapides Parish, 
swept Louisiana and is in the process of taking the nation by storm. What 
seemingly started out as a simple desegregation plan with a routine busing 
procedure has escalated into a showdown over state's rights versus the 
power of the national government. 

State Judge Richard Lee, fast approaching Louisiana folk-hero status, 
has skillfully thrown Federal Judge Nauman Scott some bait which would 
produce a showdown between the State and the National Government over 
the busing issue. The bait is three junior high girls. And as Judge Scott 
eagerly snapped up the bait, an issue was begun which might pose as 
Busing's most formidable opponent. 

In a nut shell, the issue is not really of desegregation, but over custody of 
the three girls. When Judge Scott recently implemented his Rapides Parish 
desegregation plan, the parents of Michelle Laborde, Lynda McNeal and 
Ramona Carbo granted custody of the girls to friends living in the Buckey 
school district so the girls could attend the school they had previously at- 
tended instead of being bused several miles away to a new school. 

Custody of children is regulated by state law and Judge Lee granted the 
change of custody. Something he has the right to do. 

Judge Scott, taking the bait, overruled Judge Lee's custody decision, 
saying to the effect that the parents were only attempting to circumvent his 
desegration plan and therefore custody should revert back to the parents 
and the children attend their designated rule. Judge Lee has continuously 
blocked Judge Scott's rulings and the girls still attend Buckeye for now. 

It is here that the showdown begins. Is it legal for the government to step 
in and arbitrarily take power away from the state which was granted to it by 
the Constitution, void a legal state document, and above all actually in- 
terfere with the parents control over their children? (This is not unusual 

This sounds rather Communistic, or Fascist, or whatever. What is the 
next step. Will a federal judge next order 100,000 people from a certain 
region of the country to move to Detroit and go to work for Chrysler at low 

Will the federal government begin forming their own schools where 
federal judges will order students to attend over the wishes of the parents. 
Kind of like the old Hitler Youth. 

Judge Scott's actions are testimony of the federal government's 
willingness and ability to force itself on the state and supersede state's 
rights. Witness the federal government's plans to dump nuclear waste in 
Louisiana salt domes even though the whole state is opposed to the idea. 

But the government continues to push unpopular ideas on the majority of 
the people, regardless of their complaints. The American realize the need 
for desegregation, but at the cost of the horrors of busing? At the cost of 
cancelling parental control over their own children? 

I realize the need for a strong national government. But is there a need for 
an all-powerful, monster government/? One that can abide by the Con- 
stitution when it wants to and disregard it when necessary? 

Though Judge Scott seems to hold the cards, being a federal judge with 
more power than a state judge, it is quite possible that he may lose this 
battle. Scott's rulings have turned the people against him. If the judge had 
ignored the girls and continued with his desegration plan, this might have 
blown over. Now the state is totally against, and with a conservative cong- 
ress, president and supreme court, Judge Scott's chances to pull his plan off 
is beginning to dwindle. The one thing that Judge Scott does having going 
for him is that the KKK is siding with Judge Lee. People always tend to shy 
away from anything the Klan backs. 

The issue is so sensitive that it should in all probability go to the U. S. 
Supreme Court. And that should be an interesting ruling now that it is 
fashionable to be Conservative. 

Yarn ado In Chains 

We hear that there are plans afoot to begin making some improvements 
at Varnado Hall in the near future. Guard-houses equipped with sear- 
chlights and machine guns will be built surrounding the dorm. Guards, 
armed with attack dogs, shotguns, and tear gas grenades, will patrol the 
dorm area to subdue rowdy students coming in after curfew or found lying 
on the floor or slumped in a chair. And to make things more efficient, all 
Varnado residents will get numbers tattooed on their arms. 

It appears that with this semester tighter control measures over students 
have been adopted. Varnado, traditionally an upperclassmen dorm, seems 
to be hardest hit. Varnado Lobby is almost off-limits. The TV goes off at a 
certain time, no matter what. And curfews have been set. Curfews have 
been set at various other dorms around campus. (And they try and tell us 
that we are adults and should make the dorms our home. No wonder people 
want to live off-campus.) 

I told you what would happen if you voted Republican.

Sauce Reporter 

Today is the day that Ronald 
Reagan officially becomes President 
Ronald Reagan. I think that the 
reason he didn't expect to carry 
every state, with the exception of 
only four, is that Ronald Reagan 
cannot comprehend the power of 
the "New Moral Right". 

For those of you who do not yet 
know of the New Moral Righ do not 
fear. Within the next 10 years you 
will not only know exactly who they 
are, but you may also find that they 
are controlli ng every aspect of your 

The New Moral Right is the 
phrase used to denote a group of 
mostly southern evangelists who 
presently not only head thier 
respective churches, but also head 
groups such as: The Moral 
Majority, heard of throughout the 
Presidential campaign, headed by 
southern television evangelist, Jerry 
Falwell; The Committee for the 
Survival of a Free Congress, headed 
by Washington wonder-boy, Paul 
Weyrich, (Incidently, Weyrich's 
former deputy to the CFSFC, the 
Reverend Robert Billings, served as 
Reagan's religious-affairs advisor 
during the Presidential campaign); 
and The Catholics for Christian 
Political Action, headed by Gary 
Potter, to name a few. 

These groups, along with others 
such as the Conservative Caucus, 
The National Conservative Political 
Action Committee, and the 
National Association for the Ad- 
vancement of White People, are 
what is known as "The New Moral 
Right"! Some of these groups, in an 
effort to gain "party unity", 
banded together and are collectively 
known as the Religious Round- 
table, currently headed by a former 
soap salesman, Ed MacAteer. 

Most of the preachers involved 
with these groups are pretty much 
what one would expect them to be; 
God fearing individuals adamant in 
destroying everything, and 
everyone, that is evil. 

The one thing one wouldn't 
expect is the amount of money these 
individuals control, literally in the 
hundreds of millions of dollars. One 
program alone, that of Jerry 
Falwell's "Old Time Gospel Hour", 
grosses nearly $46 million , yearly, 
accor ding to a January '81 Playboy 
Magazine article, written by 
Johnny Greene. 

These groups, or representatives 
of these groups, gathered in a 
Washington attorneys office in mid- 
December of 1978, suppose dly to 
prepare a bill to be introduced into 
Congress by Right controlled 
Senators and Congressmen. The 
bill, suprisingly enoug is entitled 
The Family Protection Act. 

The FPA is designed to outline 
the basic principles of the right, 
those principles shooting down 
labor unions, ERA, abortion, 
pornography, and homosexuality. 

All in all, some of the things the 
Right is trying to change are not so 
bad. What is so alarming is how 
they plan to do these things, and 
more importantly, where will they 
be regulated? 

For instance, the New Right is 
against homosexuality because it 
goes against Christian philosophy. 
Granted, but obviously no one body 
can prevent homosexuality. All it 
can do is to outlaw any individual 
from saying he or she is homosexual 
This is obviously, blatently 
against the First Amendment to the 
U.S. Constitution, but then again 
many of these people hate every 
word of the Constitution and would 
probably enjoy seeing it burned. 

Another instance of the New 
Right's ignorance (or indiffer ence) 
to the Constitution, is prevelent in 
the attitudes of CFCPA head, Gary 
Potter. In one interview Potter 
spoke of the America he invisions, 
as seen by the authors of the Family 
Protection' Act. In this interview, 
Potter is quoted as saying, "When 
the Christian majority takes over 
this country, there will be no more 
satanic churches... and no more talk 
of rights for homosexuals." 

I personally don't worship the 
devil, and I certainly don't want my 
children to, but if someone else 
wants to, well then our Constitution 
says that they have the right to. 
Appar ently, some (or most) of the 
members of the so-called New 
Right don't give a fat rat's you- 
know-what about the Constitution. 

Very frankly, what the New Right 
would have us believe, is that if we 
are not anti-ERA, anti-abortion, 
anti-gay rights, or anti-desegration, 
then we are anti-God. 

And the strange thing is , is that 
not one of these people are likely to 
argue me on that point. 

As for just where or how these 
people will be regulated, it is not 
known to me. 

In his article, Greene mentions 
that Jerry Falwell, leader of the 
Moral Majority, (whose estimated 
30 million viewers tune in weekly to 
his show, "Old Time Gospel 

Hour"), sent a form letter to 
members of Congress, entitled, 
"Ninety-five Theses for the 

In this letter Falwell not only 
discussed issues directl connected to 
the Family Protection act, but, 
according to Greene, "such diverse 
matters of state and theology as the 
manner in which American foreign 
policy should be conducted", also, 
"th nations military and the amount 
of defense spending nesessary to 
sustain (it)", and, "the necessity for 
capitol punishment." 

According to Falwell, communal 
living, abortion, homosexual ity, 
abusive use of alcohol and drugs, 
premarital sex, incest, adultry, 
pornography, no-fault divorce, and 
the Equal Rights Amendment, are 
anti-family, and should not be 

If any Congressman disagree's 
with the Moral Right, he know 
better that to say anything about it. 
According to Senior Republican 
Senator Barry Goldwater, "...if 

they (the New Right) disagree with 
you one bit, your a no good 

No good S.O.B.'s, everyone 
knows, don't get re-elected to of- 
fice. Just ask Helen Wise. She used 
to be a member of the Pennsylvania 
House of Representatives. She 
states that, "I was accused of 
having a lack of moral leader- 
ship..." and "the people who put it 
over were the religious fun- 
damentalists." She wasn't re- 

Obviously, any power-hungry 
Congressman wouldn't put his 
power in jeopardy by opposing such 
a group. 

So, the fact remains, who will 
stop these people from overturning 
the present power structure of this 
country, and destroying the 
Constitution? The government, 
mostly likely, won't. No,, it will be 
up to the bljnd followers of these 
people, who probably don't even 
realize what their blind faith is 
leading them to, to stop their own 

In closing, I must mention a few 
quotations, duly noted in Greene's 
article that explain just what kind of 
leaders we may have within the next 
10 years. 

U.S. Senator Jesse Helms of 
North Carolina, in a fund-raisin g 
letter for the National Conservative 
Political Action Committee signed 
by the Senator himself, states that 
urgent donations are required, 
"Because your tax dollars are being 
used to pay for grade school courses 
that teach our children that can- 
nibalism, wife swapping, and the 
murder of infants and the elderly, 
are acceptable behavior." 

That, my dear friends, sounds 
alot like mail fraud to me, because I 
was never taught that murder was 
acceptable behavior. In any grade! 

Finally a quote by Howard 
Phillips, foonder of the Conserv- 
ative Caucus. Phillips states, "We 
must prove our ability to get revenge 
on people who go against us." 

"Revenge", sayith the Lord, "is 

Chief Justice Speaks On Buckeye 

Editor's Note: In this editorial, 
Chief Justice David Martin of 
NSU's Student Supreme Court gives 
his opinion on the legality of the 
Buckeye Three affair. 

Thoughts while wondering where 
in the world Buckeye, Louisiana 
is. ..Fellow students. I was thrilled 
to the core to be allowed to express 
some of my thoughts and ideas on 
the Buckeye situation in the hopes 
that it might help others to un- 
derstand what is going on right in 
our own backyard. David LaVere, 
our esteemed editor, asked me if I 
could possibly explain what is 
happening and give my opinion of 
it. I must say, I jumped at the 
chance; however, I am not a 
professionally trained lawyer, as my 
facts may not be totally correct, as I 
speak for David Martin, student 
and not for the University, the 
SGA, or the Student Supreme 
Court. All the opinions here are my 
own; I am simply exercising my 1st 
Amendment right to free speech, 
and would like to thank David 
LaVere for giving me the op- 

The controversy began when U.S. 
District Judge Nauman Scott 
handed down a desegregration order 
on August 6, 1980. Under this order 
students from predominantly white 
Buckeye High School would be 
bused about twenty miles to Jones 
Street Jr. High, a predominantly 
black school in Alexandria to in- 
tegrate the school and maintain 
federally mandated desegregration 

The parents of three girls, who 
attended Buckeye High School, and 
would be bused to Jones Street Jr. 
High, transfered the custody of the 
girls to friends who lived in the new 
Buckeye district. The reason for the 
custody change was never men- 
tioned, but it can safely be assumed 
to be so the girls could remain at 
Buckeye. The custody hearings 
were heard by 9th Judicial District 
Judge, Richard Lee, a state judge, 
and this created the circumstances 
for the controversy. It is a clash 
between the Jurisdiction of a federal 
judge and a state judge, and both 
seem to have legal rights to take 
actions to guarantee that their 
orders be carried out. If is the 
conflicting effects of their rulings 
which prompted their legal con- 
frontation. Judge Lee, the state 

judge, granted the custody change, 
which he felt was his duty because 
the law provides that you can give 
custody of you children to someone 
else. Judge Scott, the federal judge, 
felt that the custody change was to 
circumvent his disgregation ruling 
and said he would hold anyone who 
contradicted his order in contempt 
including Judge Lee. However, I 
feel that that type of ruling might be 
out of the scope of federal 
jurisdiction because of the 10th 
Amendment to the Constitution of 
the United State. It reads "The 
powers not delegated to the United 
States by the Constitution nor 
prohitied by it to the States by the 
States, are reserved to the States 
respectively, or to the people." No 
where in the constitution is custody 
of children granted to the Federal 
Government nor prohibited by it to 
the states, therefore the custody 
change was heard in a state court, 
and I feel it is not the job of the 
federal court to inquire into state 
court rulings. If this is allowed to 
happen something as private as 
divorce or adoption may be 
reviewed by a federal court, and I 
feel it is not the job of the federal 
court to inquire into state court 
rulings. But that doesn't mean the 
United States Supreme Court 
doesn't necessarily have 

Jurisdiction, quite the contrary, the 
Supreme Court can review just 
about any case, and overturn any 
state court rulings as it should be 
able to and I feel that if events 
continue as they are the Supreme 
Court will decide this issue. But I 
don't think Judge Scott has the 
Jurisdiction to do so. I understand 
that he feels that Lee's ruling "was 
an illegal device to get around his 
disegregation order," and it might 
possibly have been. But I don't 
think he has the right to decide that 
it was and hold Judge Lee contempt 
for his ruling. That is up to the 
United States Supreme Court 
because the state judge in my 
opinion, was entirely within his 
right to grant the custody change as 
it is a state not federal matter. The 
constitution backs Judge Lee, and 
although Judge Scott does have 
good points, I feel Judge Lee is 
correct in his ruling and that the 
matter is a state not federal affair 
and Judge Lee's ruling as a state 
ruling, in a state affair makes the 
girl's legal residents of the new 
Buckeye school zone. However, 
greater men than I shall decide it, 
and my opinions shall fall by the 
wayside, as I am sure the con- 
troversy will continue to the highest 
tribual in the United States, the 
Supreme Court. 


Dear Editor, Current Sauce: 

As a self-supporting NSU student 
who is serious about education, I 
obhject strongly to the preferential 
treatment given those connected 
with the athletic department of 
NSU. A prime example of this 
glorification occurred at 

I welcome an explanation as to 
why the band, cheerleaders and 
athletic teams are given the distinct 
advantage of being fir st in the 
arena, shoving themselves ahead of 
a long, winding lin of flu-ridden 
students. Of course I realize the 
fault lies not with the students 
themselves, but rather some 
unknown administrator who puts 
sports as NSU's top priority. 
Why athletics, of all the com- 

ponents of student life? Who is to 
say that a cheerleader's time is more 
valuable than someon whose ex- 
tracurricular interests lie elsewhere? 
If one is grantin an advantage to a 
college group - why not the Chess 
Club? or working students? Or... 
The questions are endless, and 
pointless. At the crux of thematter is 
a basic problem with NSU policies. 
The sports obsession is out of 
balance with the goal of Northw- 
estern education. 

I have no doubt that sports are an 
agreeable part of the college ex- 
perience - but please, lets keep it in

LadyDemonsNotchThree Wins, Drop Five Over Holiday Break 

Northwestern's lady Demons 
played a valiant game but just 
couldn't quite overcome a deter- 
mined Southern Mississippi team as 
they lost a tough 82-73 decision. 

Joan Darbonne's 24 points were 
not enough to overcome a 70% field 
gaol accuracy mark by the USM 
Lady Eagles. 

Beside' s Darbonne's 24, Tracy 
Taylor, Sharon Brown, and 
Stephany Washington had 12 

Brown also led the lady Demons 
with eight rebounds and Kim Paulk 
dished out four assists. 


The Northwestern Lady Demons 
thourougly destroyed the hapless 
Texas Christian University Lady 
Horned Frogs 101-60 before a petite 
crowd of 200 in Prather Colesium. 

It was never really a game as the 
Lady Demons outscored the 
Grogettes 30-10 over the last seven 
minutes of the first half. 

Stephany Washington scored 16 
points in that half aone as the Lady 
Demons held TCU to a meager 22% 
field goal efficiency mark in 1 the 

The second half was a repitition 
of the first s the ladies dominated 

both ends of the court in running 
their record to 8-6 while the 
Frogettes dropped to 13-11. 

Leading the way for NSu were 
Sharon Brown with 18 points 
followed by Washington with 17, 
Helen LeFevre, Erica Dupree, and 
marilyn Gates with 10. 

Brown also had nine rebounds to 
pace the squad while Dupree handed 
out five assists. 

NSU— Nicholls 

A hot shooting Tracy Taylor 
came off the bench to score 16 of 
her team high 22 points in the 
second half to lead the Lady 
Demons to a 91-74 rout of the 
Nicholls State University Lady 

After a rather slow moving first 
few minutes, the Lady Demons 
scored nine unanswered points to 
build a 19-7 lead that they never 

At the end of the first half it was 
NSU up by 43-29 and when the two 
teams came out on the floor in the 
second half, it was time for the 
Tracy Taylor show starring Tracy 

Tracy scored all of her second 
half points in the first 7:47 of the 
second half. A very remarkable 

achievement expecially considering 
that the rest of the Lady Demons 
had only scored six points total. 
And even more remarkable was that 
the Lady Colonels had only score 15 
points total. 

However, Tracy was not the only 
Lady Demon who enjoyed a big 

Jona Darbonne pitched in 16 
points and Stephany Washington 
chipped in 15 to lead NSU in 

Marilyn Gates grabbed six 
rebounds and Linda Jones handed 
out five assists. 

NSU— Southern 

A cold shooting second half 
spelled doom for the Lady Demons 
as they dropped a tough 68-54 
decision to the Southern University 
Lady Jaguars in Baton Rouge. 

The Lady Demons made a tight 
game of it in the first half trailing by 
only two, 33-31 at the first buzzer. 

However in the second half, the 
Ladies could not seem to get un- 
tracked and Southern took the lead 
for good to coast to the victory. 

Joan Darbonne led the way for 
NSU with 16 points followed by 
Stephany Washington with nine 

Washington and Sharon Brown 
each had five rebounds while Erica 
Dupree and Linda Jones dished out 
five and four assist respectively. 

NSU— McNeese 

The Lady Demons continued 
their trend of down to the wire 
games with a 73-72 overtime loss to 
the McNeese Cowgirls in Lake 

McNeese's Pauline Habetz's shot 
with 1:21 left in overtime gave- 
McNeese the win. 

With the loss, Northwestern's 
record dropped to 6-5 on the year. 

Marilyn Gates and Sharon Brown 
were virtually indestructable in the 

Gates had a 17 points and 16 
rebounds while Brown added 12 
points and 14 rebounds. Other 
leading scorers for the Lady 
Demons were Joan Darbonne with 
12 and Stephany Washington with 

Tracy Taylor added seven 
rebounds for NSU and Erica 
Dupree had three steals. 

NSU— So. Miss. 

Joan Darbonne hit two free 
throws with just seconds left to 

propel the Lady Demons to a 74-72 
victory over the Southern 
Mississippi University Lady Eagles. 

In Northwestern's second straight 
game that went right down to the 
wire, clutch shooting was the key to 
the game. 

Northwestern fell behind by three 
points at 53-50 with just over eight 
minutes to go in the game, but in the 
next three minutes they scored 11 
straight points to take the lead at 61- 

From there SMU batteled back to 
within four at several points during 
the contest but each time some 
crackerjack outside shooting by 
NSU thwarted SMU's rally. 

Joan Darbonne's 15 points led the 
Lady Demons and Sharon Brown's 
14 points and Marilyn Gates 12 
points aided the NSU effort. 

Brown also added a spectacular 
14 rebounds which was one shy of 
the total number of rebounds for 
SMU's top two rebounders. 

NSU— McNeese 

Northwestern dropped a 74-68 
decision at the hands of the tough 
McNeese State University Cowgirls 
at Prather Coliseum. 

A meager 200 people showed up 
to watch the Ladies go down to the 

wire in a very exciting and heart- 
breaking game. 

Marilyn Gates and Joan Dar- 
bonne scored 23 of NSU's 33 first 
half points as Northwestern and 
McNeese engaged in some run and 
gun shows. 

It stayed close all the way down to 
the end of the game as Northwestern 
put on a balance scoring attack but 
the Cowgirls prevailed in the last 14 
seconds for the win. 

Leading scores for NSU were 
Gates with 19 and Darbonne with' 

Gates also added a whopping 13 
rebounds which was followed by 
Sharon Brown's seven. 


NSU— La. College: 


The Lady Demons took it on the 
chin with a 67-61 loss to the 1 
Louisiana College Lady Wildcats. 

After taking a 28-24 halftime 
lead, the Ladies just could not seem 
to put it all together in the second 
half as La. College rolled to a' 

Sharon Brown and Joan Dar- 
bonne scored 16 points each for the 
Lady Demons, while Stephany 
Washington grabbed five rebounds 
to lead NSU's rebounding cause. 

NSU Inks Two Mississippi Gridders 

Northwestern's basketball Demons and Rodney 
Daingerfield have a lot in common. Neither one of them 
seems to ever get any respect. 

The hard-luck Demons are now 2-9 on the season (not 
countin a home game against Southeastern La. last 
night) and could very easily be 6-3 had they had any 

One-point losses in the last seconds of ballgames had 
become a common occurrence for the Demons of first- 
year head coach Wayne Yates. The team's record is 0-4 
at home (again not taking into consideration last night's 
game and those four setbacks have come by a combined 
total of seven points. 

The most recent one-point, last-second defeat for the 
frustrated Demons came Saturday night at Centenary. 
This time around, it wasn't a foul or a turnover that 
caused the loss, but instead a most obvious call missed. 

NSU center Fred Piper took a shot for the Demons 
with three seconds left and the Demons trailing by one 
point that was inadvertantly tipped in by Centenary 
freshman Eric Bonner. It seemed as though NSU finally 
had a break. Right? Wrong. 

The game official who called the play ruled no basket, 
and reportedly made his judgement saying NSU was 
guilty of offensive goaltending. To top that off, he 
wouldn't even give Yates an - explanation of his call. 
So, another one-point loss and another game where the 
break went against the Demons. 

One-point setbacks to Trans America Conference 
foes Northeast and Houston Baptist were decided in the 
final seven seconds on free throws no less, while a two- 

point loss to Grambling in Prather Coliseum and a 
three-point failing against La. Tech at home were the 
result of lopsided free throw margins enjoyed by the 

The Demons are now 1-3 in the conference and could 
easily be 4-0. But, since they have things in common 
with old lack-of -respect Rodney, what can one ex- 

Saturday's annual Senior Bowl game from Mobile, 
Ala., had to make Northwestern fans stop and think. 
Are these games to show off ALL the top talent sup- 
posedly chosen for the game, or just to limelight the 
players from the surrounding area? 

Ail-American tailback Joe Delaney of NSU was 
invited to participate in the contest. He is considered 
one of the top pro prospects at his position in America. 
He did not carry the football one time in the Senior 
Bowl. Instead, he ran back a couple of kickoffs and 
never had a chance to show what he can do. 

Alabama boys James Brooks of Auburn and Major 
Oglivie of the University of Alabama played almost the 
entire game and did absolutely nothing. The losing 
South squad had a puny rushing attack (about 25 yards 
net) and yet Delaney and Stump Mitchell of the Citadel 
were hardly given a chance to improve that facet. 
Mitchell did at least carry the pigskin a couple of times. 

Although Joe didn't get to play, he showed plenty in 
the Blue-Gray game on Christmas day and has shown 
plenty in the past, enough to get attention from several 
pro teams. Let's take a guess and say he gets picked in 
the second round of the NFL draft this year... 

Two standout football players 
from North High School in Nat- 
chez, Mississippi are the latest 
recruits to sign with Northwestern 
State University. The two are 
defensive back Michael Richardson 
and offensive guard Author Berry 
and bring the total of Demon 
recruits to 18 for the year. 

Richardson is a 6-0, 170-pounder 
who played both cornerback and 
safety this past season. He averaged 
over seven tackles per game and 
intercepted seven passes. 
Richardson was first team all-Big 8 
Congerence an was also on all-state 
selection. He was also an all- 
conference pick as a junior. 

Richardson was also used to 
return kickoffs and punts this 
season. He has run the 40-yard dash 
in 4.4 seconds and also runs on the 
track team at North High. 

Berry, a 6-2, 240-pounder, joined 
Richardson on the all-conference 
and all-state teams. The talented 
offensive guard was also an all- 
conference selection as a junior. 

Along with playing offense Berry 
played noseguard on defense and 
was the third leading tackier on the 
team. Like Richardson, Berry also 
participates in track where he

A few sports thoughts while 
trying to figure out why the NSU 
basketball team couldn't abbreviate 
their second half of the game to 
nineteen minutes thus averting those 
last second losses... 

Although the Northwestern 
football team finished up as the 
number 8 ranked team in Division 1- 
AA, some football critics have 
suggested that maybe NSU could 
have been ranked higher, and 
maybe even in Division 1 . 

Consider. ..NSU beat Southeast 
16-14. SLU beat Boise St. in Boise. 
Boise St. defeated Grambling and 
ultimately Eastern Kentucky to win 
the Divison 1-AA football crown. 
By virtue of Northwestern's win 
over SLU and SLU's win over 
Boise St., NSU could have whipped 
everybody in 1-AA. 

Or, if you can imagine this, 
George defeated Notre Dame for 
the national championship. Notre 
Dame beat Alabama, and 'Bama 
beat Southern Miss, by three, 
McNeese lost to USM by only two 
points and NSU beat McNeese by 
three. Therefore by virtue o points, 
NSU is one point better than USM 
and only two points off of 
Alabama, which was in the Cotton 
Bowl. It sounds complicated, but if 
NSU gets the breaks, they could be 
in the Orange Bowl in a few years. 

Now on the basketball front, the 
Trans America Athletic Conference 
Press Release has come out and 
NSU has placed several players 
among the conference leaders. 
As a team NSU in third in scoring 

offense with a 70. 1 average and 
third in free throw percentage with a 
.668 average. Northwestern in team 
is seconddefense agaisnt the rebound 
with a 34.3 average. 

Individually for the Demons, 
Wayne Waggoner and Fred Piper 
occupy the 13th and 15th places in 
scoring. Jim Hoops is fourth in 
rebounding and Piper is seventh. 

Piper is also ranked in another 
category (his third) with a field goal 
percentage that puts him fourth. 

Melvin Youngblood and Earnest 
Reliford rank sixth and seventh in 
free throw percentage and 
Youngblood is ninth in assists. 

Speaking of the Demon team, it 
should be noted that althoug NSU is 
2-7, (as of this writing) they haven't 
been blown out of any game. They 
could just as easily be 7-2 with a 
few breaks, having lost 4 games in 
the last minute of the game. 

The Lady Demon Basketball team 
is being more than impressive, 
especially in the rebounding 
department. Over a period of three 
games Marilyn Gates had 13, 14, 
and 16 rebounds and teammate 
Sharon Brown had 14 rebounds 
three times. Mary Humphrey has a 
14 rebound game to her credit and 
Tracy Taylor has an 11 rebound 

Taylor is also the hot-streak 
champ of Northwestern with an 
impressive showing of 16 points in 
seven minutes. If she had kept that 
up she would have finished the game 
with an NSU record of 90 points in 
one game.

Stamey Claims Highman Trophy; All-America Panel Named 

In the final voting for the 
Highman Trophy, the symbol of 
football forecasting excellence, 
Current Sauce Business Manager, 
David Stamey was the winnerdespite 
bitter protests by fifth runner-up 
Mike Gallien. 

Stamey, who finished the season 
with an 89-31 record, garnered nine 
of the 10 first place votes being cast 
by sports writers of the United 
States' most insignificant cities. 
The only remaining first place vote 

went to the unknown homecoming 

Joe Cunningham and Dr. Ray 
Baumgardner finished second and 
third respectively with 85 and 84 
wins apiece. Gallien, who went 3-7 
in the bowl selections felt positively 
hostile as he watched his record fall 
behind that of the guest selectors in 
the final tabulations and finish in 
sixth place. 

Stamey also led the way in the All 
American voting as he gathered 89 
votes to squeeze past Cunningham 

and Dr. Baumgardner who had 85 
and 84 votes. Celebrity panelists 
Buddy Wood (9-20-80) and Diane 
Adams (11-1-80) were named to the 
exclusive club because of 10-0 
records in their respective weeks. 

Gallien led the way for the 
honorable mentions with two votes 
followed by Jerry Pierce, Wendy 
Cox, Terri Ellis, Teresa Peterson, 
Allison Arthur, Dr. Austin 
Temple, Fred Gallowav, Randy 
Liles, Donna LaFleur, Jay 
Lavaspere, Tony Hernandez, Curt 

Budreaux, David Lavere, Mark 
Manuel, Missy Toups, Father Greg 
Rabalais, Alison Breazeale, Coach 
Pat Pierson, and Coach Wayne 

A special voting was taken place 
to determine the guest panelist of 
the year and in an unprecedented 
landslide, Alison Breazeale won, 
but not because of her predicting 
ability, it was because of her in- 
credible imitation of Diana Kemp in

Demons 97 
La. College 70 

Northwestern won its first game 
of the year against two losses with a 
97-70 shellacking of the Louisiana 
College Wildcats. 

The Demons opened up to an 
early 12-4 lead and coasted on into 
the locker-room with a 42-26 first 
half lead. 

In the second half, NSU scored 10 
points to the Wildcats two and 
simply blew them away with a .750 
percent field goal accuracy mark in 
that half. 

At one point the Demons had 
built up 31 point lead before 
settling for the 27 point margin. 

Wayne Waggoner led all scorers 
with 22 points and he was followed 
by Jerry Lynch with 18 and Ernest 
Reliford, Harry Francis and Ray 
Baggett with 13, 13, and 12 points 

Reliford had seven rebounds and 
Jim Hoops had six to lead the 
Demon cause in that category and 
Baggett and Waggoner each han- 
ded out three assists. 


Demons 71 
UALR 63 

Northwestern grabbed the Trans 
America Athletic Conference lead 
with a 71-63 victory over the 
University of Arkansas Little Rock. 

After falling behind by as much 
as 10 points in the first half, NSU 
closed to within five at 35-30, at 

The Demons came roaring back 
with an 18-2 second half spurt and 
went ahead 57-47. 

Melvin Youngblood led the 
Demons with 15 points and he was 
followed by Wayne Waggoner with 
14, Earnest Reliford with 11 and 
Jerry Lynch with 10. 

Reliford grabbed eight rebounds 
and Fred Piper, playing in his first 
game since breaking his thumb 
added seven caroms in just half a 

Demons 77 
Pepper dine 87 

Four missed layups by Nor- Tne Northwestern Demons saw 
thwestern in the first few minutes of their short lived TAAC league lead 
the game enabled the Pepperdine crumble when they lost a heart- 

University Waves to jump to a quick 
12-4 lead, and roll to an 87-77 
victory in the first round of the 
Evansville Holiday tourney in 
Evansville Indiana. 

It was a game of missed op- 
portunities for the Demons as they 
watched their record fall to 2-3. 

Demon guard Wayne Waggoner 
tried valiantly to keep the Demons 
in the game but some real heads up 
inside play by Pepperdine offset 
Waggoners long range bombs. 

Waggoner wound up as the 
leading scorer for Northwestern 
with 24 points and he was followed 
by Ernest Reliford with 13 and Ray 
Baggett with 10 points. 

Fred Piper had 10 rebounds for 
the Demons and Jerry Lynch and 
Wayne Waggoner each supplied 

Demon guard Melvin 
Youngblood dished out five assists 
and stole three passes for the 

Demons 70 
Akron 87 

In the consolation game of the 
Evansville tourney, Northwestern 
dropped an 86-70 decision at the 
hands of the Akron University Zips. 

Akron jumped out to a 44-28 
first half lead thanks largely to an 
anemic .344 shooting percentage for 
the Demons. 

The Demons came out in the 
second half to match Akron in 
scoring, point for point, but the 16 
point first half lead prove\ to much 
for the Demons to overcome. 

Leading the way for the Demons 
offensively was Fred Piper with 17 
points. He was followed by Melvin 
Youngblood with 12 and Ray 
Baggett with 10 points. 

Piper also led Northwestern with 
10 rebounds while Jim Hoops added 
six and led the team with three

Northeast 66 

breaking decision at the hands of 
the Northeast University Indians 66- 

In a tightly played first half that 
saw neither team build a lead of 
over seven points, the Demons and 
Indians played to a halftime tie. 

When the two teams hit the floor 
for the second half tipoff, the game 
followed the patern of the first half 
with neither team holding a com- 
manding edge over the other. 

NSU had three key players foul 
out of the contest, Ernest Reliford, 
Fred Piper, and Jerry Lynch, but 
capable backup man Roger Nolan 
came in to tie the score 65-66 with 
1 :03 remaining in the game. 

NLU moved into a stall offense 
for the next minute and a Ray 
Baggett foul on Pat Gullatt set up 
NLU's last second win. 

Wayne Waggoner led the scoring 
for NSU with 17 points, 14 coming 
in the first half, and he was followed 
by Piper with 14 and Lynch and 
Harry Francis with 10 points each. 

Jim Hoops played a spectacular 
inside game and came away with 10 
rebounds for the Demons while 
Piper and Melvin Youngblood had 
five assists apiece. 

Demons / 
Grambling 73 

A furious NSU rally fell just short 
against the Grambling State Tigers 
as the Northweatern Demons 
dropped their fifth straight game, 
73-71 at Prather Colesium. 

A rash of fouls, some of them 
seemingly made up by the whims of 
the officials plagued NSU as they 
game went down to the final second. 

NSU rallied back from a nine 
point deficit with just over five 
minutes to play but a talented GSU 
stall offense provided the Tigers 
with the win. 

Melvin Youngblood and Wayne 
Waggoner came off the bench to 
lead the Demons in scoring with 16 
points apiece while Earnest Reliford 
and Fred Piper led the starters with 
15 and 11 points each. 

Another reserve, Jim Hoops came 
off the bench to do what he does 
best, grab rebounds, and he 
managed 12. Hoops also led NSU 
in assists with five. 

Demons 71 
Centenary 72 

Demons 51 
Houston Baptist 52 

Northwestern saw a 14 point 
second half lead blow away as they 
lost all composure in bowing to the 
Houston Baptist Huskies by a score 
of 52-51. 

For the Demons it was their 
second straight one point loss and 
their sixth loss of the year. 

The Demons called jhree time 
outs in a space of 16 seconds. The 
only trouble was that the last one 
was illegal and the ensureing 
techinical foul shot cost NSU the 

Leading the scoring for NSU was 
Fred Piper who had 18 points before 
fouling out, and Wayne Waggoner 
who had 10 points. 

Jim Hoops again led the Demons 
in rebounding with six and Jerry 
Lynch was right behind him with 

Lady luck just wouldn't smile for 
the Northwestern Demons as they 
lost their fifth game of the season by 
two points or less, as the Centenary 
Gents beat them 72-71 in 

Trailing 72-71 with three seconds 
left, Northwestern brought the ball 
down court and Earnest Reliford 
skied a shot that bounced around 
the rim and a Centenary forward 
inadvertantly tipped it in for what 
appeared to be the game winner for 

However, the guys in the zebra 
shirts ruled that the bucket was 
made after the final buzzer and the 
shot was not allowed. 

Former Gent Wayne Waggoner 
led the Demons with 17 points 
against his former teammates while 
NSU mate Jim Hoops added 14 
points and Fred Piper tossed in 13* 

Piper also led the club lfr 
rebounds with nine.

New Commissioner of Elections Named 

SGA Conducts 
First Meeting 

Camp Varnado 

We're not sure whether this is just a student 
prank objecting to the rule crackdown in 
Varnado Dorm, or if the dorm has, in ac- 
tuality, become a prison camp. Irate dorm 

residents have recently protested the strict 
rules in what was once NSU's finest and most 
popular dorm. 

The Student Government 
Association in its first meeting Jan. 
19 greeted Sam Smith as the new 
Director of Student Services. The 
SGA also expressed a concern to get 
down to serious business during the 
next two months before the up- 
coming officer' elections. 

Smith voiced his pleasure at being 
back on the NSU campus, and in 
addition to serving at the Housing 
Office, is attending class and living 
in Rapides dorm, "by choice," he 

He asked the SGA for student 
input on the problems of NSU, so 
that a real effort can be put forth in 
solving them. He said, "I can't 
solve all the problems. I will rely on 
you to give me direction in solving 
the problms." 

Cliff Lopez, SGA President, 
asked members to introduce more 
bills so that SGA can solve more of 
the problems facing it. 

Lopez also asked for two people 

to review attendance policies and 
make recommendations for change. 
He said the recommendations would 
go to the Student Advisory Council 
in Baton Rouge. 

Mike Barton of Student Life said 
that another blood drive would be 
held soon, and he asked for new 
ideas to make the drive more 
successful than last semester's drive. 

Chairman for the Election 
Revisions Committee, Kevin 
Bartholomew, spoke of a bill to be 
introduced in the next two weeks 
concerning revisions to the election 
code. Bartholomew estimated the 
number of revisions to the code to 
be "20 or 22." 

Dianna Kemp, State Fair 
Chairman, was sworn in as the new 
Commissioner of Elections, 
replacing Mark Manuel, who

SUGB Searching For Workers; 
No Date Set For Lounge Opening 

Non-credit Courses Offered 

"It is ready to go, all we need is 
-some policy and some workers", 
say's SUGB President, Ron 
Thomas. Once again the nagging 
question of, "when will the new TV 
Viewing and Music Listening 
Lounge open", arose at the weekly 
meeting of the SUGB last Tuesday. 

"We're trying to get five 
workers", states Robert Wilson, 
Director of the Student Union. The 
lounge cannot open without 
workers, however, the SUGB hopes 
to have those workers by the time 
Feb. 2-8 comes around. That is the 
date of the first event scheduled for 
the lounge, that being Video 
Awareness Week. 

In other SUGB business, Student 
Representative Marius McFarland, 
who was recently inducted into Med 
School, was openly disgruntled at 
the band that played this semesters 
Howdy Dance, Infinity. McFarland 
approached one of the members 
asking that some soul be played. 
The member replied by saying that 
the closest to "soul" they could 

come to was the Rolling Stones. 
Only about 100-150 students at- 
tended the dance. 

Hitting on that note, Kevin 
Bartholomew, SGA Rep to the 
Board, stated that Spring dances 
usually don't pull in the bigger 
crowds and suggested that the 
Board do away with the Spring 
dance, and use the extra funds for a 
bigger blowout in the Fall. 

Archie Anderson, Board First 
Vice President, announced that the 
first Mini-Concert of the Spring, to 
take place in the SU Ballroom on 
Feb. 3, would feature a blues act by 
Larry Magnum and Lonnie Brooks. 

Jack Welch, Cinemafocus 
Committee Chairman, reminded the 
Board that Jan. 29 was the date for 
the Worst Film Festival. He stated 
that students would be given prizes, 
but that they must attend at least 
three of the movies to be eligible. 

Once again, the Sauce reminds 
students that several SUGB 
Committee Chairmen seats are 
open. The seats are scheduled to be 

filled, by election, on Feb. 3. 
Students interested should go by the 
Student Union office located on the 
Second Floor, for more in- 

Finally, definite committee 
meeting dates were not available to 
the Sauce. As soon as definite dates 
and times for SUGB Committees 
are available, the Sauce will publish

Old One-Room Schoolhouse Comes to Northwestern 

The one-room St. Nichols 
Schoolhouse at Cloutierville, which 
has been closed for nearly 60 years, 
has been moved to the NSU campus 
for preservation by the university's 
Center for the History of Louisiana 

Mr. and Mrs. J.A. Vercher of 
Cloutierville donated the old cypress 
building to the NSU Center which 
will restore and furnish the school 
and give students and other visitors 
an accurate picture of how classes 
were conducted in the state in years 

The St. Nichols school was on a 
section of land Mrs. Vercher's 
father owned and donated to the 
Natchitoches Parish School Board 
in 1901. The school, which Mrs. 
Vercher attended in 1916, had seven 
grades and one teacher. 

Mrs. Maxine Southerland, 
director and curator of the NSU 
Center for the History of Louisiana 
Education, said the original 
teacher's desk used in the school, 
located about a mile from were St. 
Denis battled the Natchez Indians, 
was previously donated to the 

Funds to move the schoolhouse 
from its location in Cloutierville to 
the historic Normal Hill area of the 
Northwestern campus were 
provided by Mrs. Thelma Kyser of 
Natchitoches, widow of former 
NSU president Dr. John S. Kyser. 

Mrs. Kyser made the donation as 
a memorial to her late husband's 
sisters — Mrs. Camilla Kyser Brown 
and Mrs. Florence Kyser Jacob — 
who attended similar one-room 

"Our immediate plans for the St. 
Nichols Schoolhouse," said Mrs. 
Southerland, "are to restore the 
wooden shingles to the roof. We 
also plan to rebuild its mud chimney 
and the low porch that once graced 

the front of the little school." 

Acquiring a one-room 
schoolhouse was one of Nort- 
western's primary objectives after 
the Louisiana Legislature approved 
a joint resolution of 1977 
establishingthe Center on the NSU 
Campus, Mrs. Southerland ex- 

"Louisiana closed the doors of its 
last one-room schoolhouse last year 
at Australia Island," Mrs. 
Southerland said, "and having the 
St. Nichols school moved to our 
campus will help us in our efforts to 
preserve the educational heritage of 
the state." 

Through the early 1900's, most 
students attended one-room schools 
in Louisiana, Mrs. Southerland 
stated. "Because there was no 
transportation available, one-room 
schoolhouses would be built 
wherever there was a need for them. 
Each small area had one, and some 
excellent students came from these 
one-room settings." she added. 

In a recent issue of the National 
Retired Teachers Association 
Journal, Janet Lowe wrote that the 
death of one-room schoolhouses 
came in the early 1930s through 
centralization and consolidation of 
schools by legislators and educators 
across the nation. 

She reported in the article, en- 
titled "The Schools everyone 
Loves," that in 1932 there were 
127,000 separate school districts in 
the United States but by 1970 the 
total had dropped to 19,000. 

Mrs. Southerland said all of 
Louisiana's one-room schools have 
been closed and only a few such 
buildings remain open in the United 
States to serve some of the country's 
most remote communities. 

The director of the NSU center 
said she knows of only one other 
one-room schoolhouse in Louisiana 

that has been restored and preserved 
as a museum. It is at the Rural Life 
Museum in Baton Rouge. 

"When restoration of the St. 
Nichols Schoolhouse is completed," 
Mrs. Southerland said, "It will be a 

museum-type building that classes, 
historians and the general public 
will enjoy visiting." 

Mrs. Southerland noted that Eric 
Sloan, as he ended his book, "The 
Little Red School House," wrote, 

"The one-room schoolhouse is too 
much a part of America to be 
forgotten, and it lives on in the 
words of those who learned there as 
children and grew up to mold the 
nation. The little red schoolhouse 
did its job well." 

Schoolhouse Placed 

The old one-room schoolhouse which has been 
closed for over 60 years at Cloutierville, was 
recently moved to the Northwestern campus 
and placed near Caldwell Hall for preservation 
by NSU's Center for the History of Louisiana 

Education. The schoolhouse, donated by Mr. 
and Mrs. J. A. Vercher, is supposed to be 
restored and refurnished to its original con-

Charley's Aunt 

A comedy classic "Charley's Aunt" will be 
performed by the National Players, a touring 
drama company, in the Student Union 
Ballroom, Monday, Feb. 2, at 8 p. m. The 

National Players are being sponsored by 
Northwestern's 1980-81 Artist Series. Students 
will be admitted free with student I.D. 

"Charley's Aunt" Slated Feb. 2 

Northwestern's 1980-81 Artist 
Series will be presenting the 
National Players, one of America's 
foremost touring drama companies, 
in the comedy classic Charley's 
Aunt. This full-scale comedy 
production will be staged in the 
NSU Student Union Ballroom 
Monday, February 2, at 8 p.m. and 
NSU students will be admitted free 
with presentation of I.D. card. 

The National Players, based at 
Washington, D.C.'s Catholic 

University, is the oldest theatrical 
touring company in this country, 
now in its 32nd straight year of 
performing. The Company has 
been a springboard for many of 
today's most prominent actors, 
including Jon Voight, Chris 
Sarandon, and Laurence Luckinbill. 

According to Artist Series 
Chairman Tony Smith, the Players' 
production of Charley's Aunt 
"...will be a really hilarious 
mistaken-identity comedy, with 

turn-of-the-century college students 
posing a male classmate as a rich 
widowed aunt. When the real 
widow shows up, the results are 
disastrous, and very, very funny. It 
should be a great show." 

Artist Series ticketholders and 
Northwestern students will be 
admitted to Charley's Aunt free of 
charge. For others, tickets will be 
available at the door: $5 adults, $3 
children, $3 senior citizens.

Normal Hill Is Enrolled On 
National Historical Register 

Normal Hill, the oldest part of 
the Northwestern campus which is 
noted for its natural beauty and 
historically-significant buildings, 
has been placed on the National 
Register of Historic Places. 

The property, from where much 
of the area of old Natchitoches can 
be seen, was enrolled on the 
National Register by the National 
Park Service of the U.S. Depart- 
ment of Interior. 

Dr. E. Bernard Carrier, assistant 
secretary of the Louisiana 
Department of Culture Recreation 
and Tourism and the state's historic 
preservation officer, nominated the 
site after a state review committee 
recommended that Normal Hill be 
placed on the National Register. 

The site will be known nationally 
as the Normal Hill Historic District 
on the campus of Northwestern 
State University. The historic 
district comprises the area of the 
university's old academic 
quadrangle, including 72-year-old 
Caldwell Hall, 44-year-old Russell 
Hall, 52-year-old Warren Easton 
Hall and their immediate grounds. 

A fourth building, Guardia Hall, 
occupied the northern end of the 
academic guadrangle from 1911 
until it was destroyed by fire in 

Near the center of Normal Hill 
Historic District at NSU are the 
three huge white columns which are 
the only remaining traces of the 
Bullard Mansion, constructed in 
1832 and historically recognized as 
the first building on the university 

Dr. George A. Stokes, dean of the 
College of Liberal Arts at Nor- 
thwestern, said the university may 
be eligible for federal funds to help 
restore the three existing buildings 
which stand as landmarks in the 
Normal Hill Historic District. 

Stokes, who proposed that the , 
Normal Hill be placed on the 
National Register, conducted the 
historical research on the site. The 
archeological study to determine the 
pre-history of the property was done 
by Dr. Hiram F. Gregory, professor 
of anthropology at NSU. 

According to Stokes, the Normal 
Hill site "stands on the prominent 
iouthernmost projection of the high 
ground on which the upper level of 
the original white settlemen of 
Natchitoches was located." 

This early settlement developed 
along a narrow strip of land bet- 
ween the Red River of that time, 
now Chaplin's Lake on the NSU 
campus, and the high ground of the 
western wall of the Red River's 
alluvial valley. 

"The 'Hill' has retained much of 
its original shape and extent," said 
Stokes, "still being prominent and 
easily dominating the landscape in 
this large part of town." 

Stokes explained that Caldwell, 
Russell and Warren Easton Halls 
are in need of preservation "by 
virtue of the r contribution to the 
general attractiveness of the site and 
to the Hill's long association with 
historic Natchitoches and events 

The largest structure in the 
Normal Hill Histroic District is 
Caldwell Hall, a building of con- 
siderable architectural interest and 
long associated closely with the 
development of public education in 

Caldwell Hall's exterior has 
changed little, and the building is 
remembered by most NSU alumni 

as the "center of college academic 
and administrative life" at Nor- 
thwestern, Stokes said. 

Russell Hall was once Nor- 
thwestern's principal library, and 
Warren Easton Hall "was long the 
center of teacher training in 
Louisiana," stated Stokes. 

The Northwestern dean cited 
several reasons why the entire 
Normal Hill area was added to the 
National Register of Historic 

"Archeological surveys indicate 
that Indian occupation of the site 
lasted well into the era of white 
settlement," said Stokes. "Also, 
the site was once part of the per- 
sonal property of a notable French 
officer, Louis Juchereau de Saint 
Denis, who founded Natchitoches." 

The site was also the locale of 
Bullard mansion, a large ante- 
bellum house which was described 
as a striking example of Greek 
colonial architecture. The house 
was used as a private home, part of 

a Roman Catholic convent and 
school, was occupied by federal 
troops following the Civil War and 
became part of the Louisiana 
Normal School the oldest state 
school in this area. Louisiana 
Normal later became Northwestern. 

Stokes added that Normal Hill 
was the locality of a convent and 
school which was the first Catholic 
school established anywhere in 
Louisiana north of Baton Rouge, 
and in 1884 the Louisiana 
Legislature established the first 
normal school for the preparation 
of teachers on the Hill at NSU. 

"Also, the architectural styles of 
Russell and Warren Easton Halls 
are considered unique in the part of 
the country," the NSU dean ex- 

Stokes said, "The Hill merits 
recognition as part of the 
prehistoric and historic scene which 
is linked to local, national and 
international events, and as a place 
where notable relics of the past 
await reclamation and study."

Quotations From 

Editor La Mere 

Enrollment Woes 

Weird things seem to be going on around here. Confused thinking 
mainly. While this university is suffering from an identity and attendance 
crisis, very little seems to be done in the way of attracting and retaining 
students. In fact, it appears that every effort is being made to discourage 
new students and run away those already here. 

Last semester attendance dropped. I'll bet it has again this semester. 
From what I gather from talking with university officials, the two main 
reasons for the drop is the establishment of LSU— Shreveport and LSU— 
Alexandria, and the energy crunch. According to NSU officials, because 
gas has, gotten so high, most potential students just go to the closest 
university, namely LSU— S and LSU— A, formerly prime fishing ground 
for NSU students. 

While these are problems that do face the school, I refuse to believe that 
responsibility for enrollment decreases lie in these areas. And even if they 
were the main reasons, I'm sure a good, clear-thinking plan with good 
management and good advertising could surmount these insurmountable 

Though the energy crunch may be bad, it really shouldn't affect a per- 
son's choice of university too much. It has only recently come about that 
almost all students have cars. Before this and even in times before the 
internal combustion engine, students would travel hundreds or thousands 
of miles to attend the university of their choice. If a university appeals to a 
person and fulfills that person's needs, then energy crisis or not, the student 
will find his way there. 

To assist students or potential students affected by the crunch, could 
NSU make some type of deal with the bus lines to give students a discount, 
or set up a student car pool, where students for a few dollars, could catch 
rides with other students heading away for the weekend or holiday. (This, 
works in the military.) 

I'm sure that many potential NSU students attend LSU— S and LSU— A. 
The question to ask is why go there and not here. Obviously the answer is 
not gas, but that NSU doesn't fulfill some need that they feel important, 
whether it be transportation, social life, academic life, housing, or 
whatever. LSU— A and LSU— S are geared to students who live at home or 
have to work. But for the most part, when a person reaches 18 and decides 
to go to college, they usually want to get away from mama and daddy and 
get down to some studying and partying. NSU must find a way to appeal to 
these students. 

Whether university officials want to admit it or not, partying is an 
essential part of college life. It has been since universities began and will 
always be around. To the student, it is part of college, just as much as 
classes, and exams. When students have to spend most of their free time 
sitting in their rooms because they don't have anything to do after classes, 
then the student's needs are not being totally fulfilled. Is there any wonder 
why so many students leave NSU for the weekend. And what do these 
students tell their hometown friends on weekends don't go to NSU. It is 
boring. Nothing to do there. Believe me, if there is no party life at a 
university or something to divert your mind after a hard day of classes, then 
your average student will find a university that does have some diversion. 
(What would you choose , a university without any diversions or party-life, 
or an equally good university that does have a party-life? The difference 
between USL and NSU is that one has some nightly diversions and about 
5,000 more students.) 

Last year, Doug Ireland and I fought for a relaxation of alcohol rules at 
NSU. We pushed for the creation of a beer pub in the Student Union in the 
evenings. All to no avail. We were told by the Administration that since 
parents, in many cases, choose the university for their children to attend, 
they wouldn't stand for alcohol on campus. Obviously these people aren't 
sending their children here anyway since enrollment continues to decline. 
Hell, revenues from beer sales alone would help pull the university out of 

To cap everything off in what seems to be an effort to drive even more 
student away, the university has decided to tighten up it's dorm rules. 
Officials claim that the main reason for NSU being in debt is not enough 
people are living in the dorms. Is there any wonder with incidents like the 
recent Varnado affair. To get people to live in a place that they really don't 
want to live in, you must make that place as appealing as possible. Attempt • 
to make to dorm resident feel at home. Let them relax. Don't make it a 
prison camp where it takes all a person's might and will to live there. If we 
would have wanted to have been fussed at, we would have stayed at home 
and gone to LSU— S or LSU— A. 

Something has got to give at NSU. If a student just wants academics, he 
can find that at almost any school in the nation. But students want other 
things besides just academics. And NSU has got to find out what that is, or 
one-day NSU will wake up with a packed Roy Hall, a full faculty-lounge 
and plenty of empty classrooms.

Should We Pay The Kidnappers? 

It seems that the tables have been 
turned just a bit. Iran 's little caper 
over the EX — hostages cost them a 
cool $6 billion. 

How, you ask? When the Iranian 
students (I prefer terrorists) took the 
embassy, Carter froze about $9 
billion of their assets in this country. 
That was probably the smartest 
thing he did in his four years in 

Don't be fooled by the Iranian 
governments silly notion that we 
backed down to them. We only 
negotiated for the return of about 
$3.6 billion of their assets. That 
makes the US of A about $6 billion 

He who laughs last, they say, 
laughs the hardest, and you can bet 
your rear end that those freed 
Americans were laughing pretty 
hard when they at last reached New 
York last Sunday. 

The freed Americans landed early 
Sunday afternoon, and for the first 
time in 468 days were greeted by 
their families, who were clad with 
bottles of champagne and bouquets 
of flowers. Camera crews were kept 
a safe distance away, to insure the 
priva cy of the families. 

The Americans are scheduled to 
make their first debut to American 
reporters, on American soil, today. 

As has been the case in the last 
seven days, reports of abuse of the 
hostages will probably continue to 

Mental abuse is also clearly 
evident and clearly spoken of now 
that the Americans have been freed. 
In fact, EX— hostage Richard 
Queen knew of this abuse when he 
returned, but, fearing for the lives 
of his comrades, remained silent of 
the abuse to the press. 

Queen spoke of one night when 
his captors gathered the group he was 
in and filed them up against a wall 
with their backs to their captors. 
The terrorists then preceeded with a 
moc k mass execution; clicking the 
hammers of unloaded sub-machine 

It is not known to me just how 
many times this event occured but 
I'll bet that once is enough. 

Many, many other stories have 
yet to be told; some will remain 
private horrors to remind the freed 
Americans of the terror of their 444 
day captivity. 

The question now remains this: 
Should the newly innaugurated 
Reagan administration hold to the 
deal made by the old Carter ad- 
ministration, whereby giving Iran 

the capitol it needs to perhaps 
overcome the Iraqis in their present 

I say, resoundingly, hell no! Bu; I 
won't stop there. I'll tell you why. 

The situation, as I saw it, was 
this. The Iranian government took 
illegal control of 52 Americans; 
much against their will. The 
American government under the 
direction of then President Carter, 
negotiated a deal with Iran, for the 
release of the hostages. The 
hostages have been freed and all 
that remain s is the release of the 
frozen assets. 

Now picture this. Lets say that I 
kidnapped and held hostage, 52 of 
this Universities top administrators, 
including President Bienvenu; took 
themto an abandoned warehouse in 
Alexandria; and negotiated with the 
State government for, lets say, one 
million dollars, for their safe return. 

All the while I am telling every 
parish in the state that I am the 
kidnapper. Also, I have all of the 
disgruntled student of this 

University parading in front of the 
warehouse, screaming slogans like, 
"Down with Northwestern", and 
burning Demons in effigy. 

The state government makes me 
an offer of $330 thousand, which I 
cannot refuse, so I let everybody go. 

Now, do you think for one 
minute that the state government is 
going to let me have the money and 
let me use it to Wreck Tech? 

No, indeed, and that is why I 
don't think we should pay. If we 
did, we would be sucking Iranian 
egg, and Reagan would be the 
biggest suckee. 

Another point is that the deal was 
made with a different ad- 
ministration, and in a final gesture 
of defiance, the Iranians waited 33 
minutes after Carter was out of 
office to free the hostages. 

It would serve them right if we 
told them to go pray to Allah for 
their money, and to go straight to 

I've got a message for Ronald 
Reagan. You were lucky to take 
office without this hanging over 
your head, and if you intend to 
remain lucky, I wouldn't advise you 
to pay off. You might just hang 
your own political carreer; with a 
vellow ribbon! 

Amaz'm' Po'mtz 

By Dauid Stamey 

Should The Iranians Stay: 

After the barbaric treatment 
received by our 52 people that were 
held hostage in Iran for some 14 
months, wouldn't it be great for one 
of President Reagan's first moves in 
office to be a house clearing of all 
the Iranians that are attending 
school here in the good ole U.S.A. I 
know America's the land of the 
free, but extending our hospitality 
to these heathens is too much for 
me. We don't owe Iran nothing. 

Along with the spring semester 
comes the many high-school days 
here at NSU. With the high level of 
competition for these students from 
area universities, and our own 
decreased enrollment, there has 
never been a better time for all 
Northwestern students to become 
recruiters. The best time to recruit 
is when you have the prospective 
students on campus. Just taking a 
minute to talk to these students 
leaves a lasting impression with 
them. We have never needed them 

How 'bout those Demons! Coach 
Wayne Yates has really brought an 
exciting brand of play to the 
"Demons Den", and if you haven't 
caught a game your really missing 
out on some great play. After last 
weeks victory over a 11-3 Southern 
Mississippi team, people are really 
looking for big things from the 
Demons. I know close only counts 
in horseshoes, handgrenades, and 
drive-in movies, but three points 
difference and the Demons would 
be 6-0 in the TAAC. The winner of 
the conference tournament at the 
end of the year gets an automati bid 

to the NCAA national tournament, 
and the way the Demons have been 

With all the claims of rats in 
Louisiana, roaches in Natchitoches, 
and no telling what in Rapides these 
days, somebody needs to call the 
Orkin man if he'll dare come 

There is no doubt that this 
spring's registration was the most 

smoothly run in recent memory, but 
who can forget the terror of the one 
last fall. The real question is do we 
need a registration system like the 
one presently used. Most of the 
progressive universities are allready 
on a pre-registration system. I 
know at Stephen F. Austin (10,000 
students) all they have to do is bring 
the cash with them when they return 
for the spring semester. They 
allready made their schedules out at 

the end of the fall semester. The 
entire system is run by computer 
and I feel quite sure ours could 
handle it....

newspaper land who have wanted to

operation like the Current Sauce, 
now you chance. Applications for

Lady Demons Win Three Straight 

Stop Texas-Arlington, NTSU on Short Texas Trip 

Northwestern's Lady Demons 
extended their winning streak to 
three with wins Friday and Saturday 
night on a short two-day excursion 
into north-central Texas. 

In Friday night's contest, Nor- 
thwestern met the University of 
Texas at Arlington in Texas Hall on 
the UTA campus. That in itself was 
an experience. 

"We played on a stage, with stage 
lights instead of regular gym 
lights," said Lady Demon assistant 
coach James Smith. "It was really 
tough playing in there because you 
have a real depth perception 
problem. I thought the girls did a 
super job to win in those con- 

The Lady Demons had to hold off 
a late UTA rally to pick up the 75-74 

Northwestern had trailed early in 
the contest, going into the dressing 
room down 41-37. Coming out of 
the dressing room in the second 
half, the NSU squad roared out to a 

seven-point lead late in the game. 

UTA put a pressure-type defense 
in and began chipping away at the 
Northwestern lead, cutting it to two 
with just 19 seconds remaining. 

"They were fouling us on the 
press and we were getting one-and- 
one's, but we were just hitting the 
front end of them," said Smith. 
"In effect, we were trading them 
two points to our one." 

UTA got control of the roundball 
and threw up an errant shot with 
five ticks left. NSU center Marilyn 
Gates tied up the ball with a Lady 
Mav, but was whistled for a bizarre 
foul tying shot. Northwestern 
controlled the carom to get the win. 

Tracy Taylor and Stephany 
Washington led the Lady Demon 
attack with 16 tallies each. Guard 
Joan Darbonne picked up 14 points 
in the contest, while Sharon Brown 
added 10 more. Kim Paulk had nine 
markers and a dominating 13 

Carolyn Smith was high for UTA 
with 15 markers. Teammates 
Evonne Sandas and Allison Gray 
followed with 14 and 10 points, 

The Northwestern distaffers 
picked up their third consecutive 
win and fifth in their last six outings 
Saturday by thrashing North Texas 
State 87-73 in Denton. 

The Lady Demons dominated 
NTSU throughout, controlling the 
boards by a 52-40 margin. Taylor 
led the way in the rebounding 
department, pulling down 20 

"We were able to do pretty much 
what we wanted against them," 
Smith commented. "The officials 
let us play basketball over there, so 
we were able to play more agressive 
ball. They just couldn't stay with 

Having it pretty much their own 
way in the game, the Lady Demons 
moved out to an easy 48-35 halftime 

lead and were never threatened in 
the second half. 

Taylor turned in the finest per- 
formance of her brief collegiate 
career pouring in 20 points and 
blocking six shots against the Mean 
Green. Gates led the squad with 
nine rebounds ana tossed in 13' 

Darbonne followed Taylor in the 
scoring department with 18 marks. 
Brown and Washington also got 
into double figures getting 1 1 and 
10, respectively. 

Isalene Jones was tops for NTSU 
with 22 points. Diane Williams was 
close behind, picking up 19 markers 
and hauling down an amazing 2d 
rebounds. Francine Blackbyrn 
tossed in 12 points for the losers, 
while Lynne Johnston was good for 
10 more. 

The two wins upped the Lady 
Demons record to 11-7 going into 
last night's action against Louisiana 

Shell Lady Indians in Big Home Win, 88-70 

Joan Darbonne and Sharon 
Brown combined for 52 points in 
leading the Lady Demons to a big 
88-70 win over Northeast's Lady 
Indians in Prather Coliseum last 
Monday night. 

The twosome completely 
dominated the Northeast squad in 
the contest as the Lady Demons 
never trailed after the first five 
minutes of the game. 

Northwestern took the lead for 
good at the 15:47 mark of the first 
half when Brown hit a short jumper 
from the baseline to give NSU a 6-5 


The game stayed tight until the 
Lady Demons managed to reel off 
21 points in the final six-and-a-half 
minutes of the first half. In that 
stretch, Northeast picked up just 
nine points. 

Three baskets each by Darbonne 
and Brown, as well as five markers 
from Stephany Washington were 
the keys in the big explosion as the 
Lady Demons moved out to a 48-33 
intermission lead. 

The Lady Demons kept on rolling 

at the opening of the second half as 
the lead ballooned out to 25 points 
at the 12:55 mark. 

Northwestern mentor Pat Pierson 
substituted freely in the contest as 
10 different NSU players saw ac- 
tion in the game. 

Northeast was able to close the 
gap slightly in the middle portion of 
the half. Good efforts by Dawn Ash 
and Angela Batts pulled the Squaws 
to within nine with under five 
minutes to play, but another late 
surge by Northwestern gave the 

NSU ladies the final 18-point 
winning margin. 

Darbonne finished the night with 
27 points and seven assists to lead 
the Lady Demons. Brown followed 
closely with 25 points and eight 
caroms. Marilyn Gates turned in a 
good effort as well, pumping in 16 
points, hitting eight of 13 from the 

Ash paced Northeast with 27 
tallies. Lynn Marchbanks had 13, 
while Carla Vickers and Batts each 
tossed in 1 1 points for the 7-9 Lady 

Tight Defense 

Lady Demons Tracy Taylor and Joan Darbonne surround an 
unidentified Northeast Lady Indian in action in Prather 
Coliseum last Montfay. The Northwestern squad has been 
utilizing a tight defense to pick up three straight wins over 
Northeast, Texas-Arlington, and North Texas State. The Lady 
Demons have improved their season mark to 11-7 by winning 
five of their last six outings. 

After Grumbling Tilt 

Demons Come Home To Portland 

Northwestern's Demons will be 
back at home in Prather Coliseum 
Saturday night when they host 
Portland State's Vikings. The non- 
conference contest gets underway at 
7:30 p.m. 

The Demons will host PSU after 

playing at Grambling tomorrow 
night in a return matchup with the 
G-men. GSU downed NSU by two 
points on January 12 in the 
Coliseum. Northwestern was also in 
action last night in a Trans America 
Athletic Conference tilt against 

Powerful Piper 

Demon center Frederick Piper goes back up for another 
powerful basket in the Demons exciting 67-65 win over the 
highly-touted University of Southern Mississippi Golden 
Eagles. Piper tossed in 12 points and pulled down 10 caroms in 
the win in Prather Coliseum Thursday night. Southern Miss, 
has beaten such noted foes as Marquette, Oklahoma, 
Mississippi State, Louisiana Tech, and Southwestern Louisiana 
during the season, but couldn't turn the trick against the in- 
spired Demons. For more info on the game, see the story on 
Page 6 of the SAUCE. 


Portland State will be making its 
first-ever appearance in Nat- 
chitoches and the meeting will be the 
first between the Oregon school and 
NSU. The Vikings, 6-11 before a 
game at Arkansas-Little Rock last 
night, are currently on a swing south 
and will play Centenary Thursday 
night before invading Prather 
Coliseum Saturday. 

The Vikings are coached by GUn 
Kinney, who carried an 11-4 record 
at the school into this season. That 
record has been accumulated in 
three years of service at Portland 

Last year, the Vikes suffered 
through a horrendous 5-21 cam- 
paign and played 16 of their 26 
games on the road. Four starters 
and six lettermen were lost off that 

Returning, however, was 6-2 
senior guard Dave Hildahl, and he 
has taken over the role of scoring 
leader for the Vikings. 

Hildahl averaged Just under 10 
points per game last season but is 
hitting at an 18-point clip through 
PSU statistics of Jan. 24. He is one 
of three Vikings averaging in double 

Transfers Steve Gilliam and Doug 
Eitertson have been consistent 
although the PSU unit has won but 
six games. 

Gilliam, a 6-0 Junior guard and 
rfildahl's backcourt starting mate, 
is close behind with a 17.3 scoring 
norm while Eitertson, a 6-7, 210- 
pound sophomore forward, is 
scoring Just under 14 points an 

Gilliam and Eitertson are two of 
seven Junior college recruits Kinney 
and his staff were able to acquire. 
Other top newcomers are 6-9 Junior 
forward Allen Adney; 6-4 Junior 
guard Dale Wiitala; 6-3 Junior 
guard Vincent Small; 6-3 Junior 
guard Dennis Patterson and 6-6 
Junior forward Gary Haugen. 

PSU returned only three let- 
termen from last year, including 

Portland State basketball is most 
widely known because two years ago 
it had the nation's leading scorer, 
that being sharp-shooting guard 
Freeman Williams. 

Williams, who gained national 
acclaim after scoring 81 points in 
one game and leading the nation's 
scorers, is now a member of the 
NBA's San Diego Clippers.

Miller Athletes of the Week 

Wayne Waggoner 

Tracy Taylor 

Junior guard Wayne Waggoner and freshman center Tracy Taylor of the NSU basketball 
teams are the recepients of this week's Miller Athletes of the Week Award after their efforts 
over the past week. 

Waggoner, the Demons' leading scorer, gunned in 37 points in NSU's two recent wins (over 
Southern Mississippi Thursday and Georgia Southern Saturday) while hitting 16 of 30 from the 
field. The 6-2 sharp-shooter hit for 20 against Ga. Southern. 

Taylor "came into her own" according to Lady Demon head coach Pat Pierson after her 
performances on the road in wins over Texas Arlington and North Texas State this past week- 

The 6-2 tied for team-high honors with 16 points at UTA and came back with a 20-point, 
five-rebound effort against NTSU. Also against NTSU she blocked six shots. 
Taylor hit on 16 of her 24 field goal attempts in the two wins, a lofty 67 percent.

thwestern basketball team under 
first year head Coach Wayne Yates 
looks like it has finally shaken that 
close game jinx after an impressive 
two point upset win over the 
University of Southern Mississippi. 

USM came into the game with 
wins over among others, Marquette, 
which beat Notre Dame . So 
theoretically, Northwestern could 
beat Notre Dame on the basis of 
NSU's win over USM. 

In this collumn we will 
take a look at the guys who, with 
any luck, will be able to meet that 
Notre Dame team in the NCAA 

First there is Melvin Youngblood. 
He is a cat quick guard who has 
stepped into the starting role of 
floor leader as a freshman. 
"Blood" as he is called, is currently 
among the top five in free throw 
t^rcentage and assist leaders in the 
Trans America Athletic Conference. 

A\ another guard slot is perhaps 
the fastest Demon , Harry Francis. 
Harry a computer science major 
and is kvjwn for his work on the 
opposing »ffenses and his class 

Mike Green,, a 6-0 senior, is in 
his fourth yea. on the Demon 
basketball team, * n d is one of the 
better students on « n academically 
talented NSU team. Qreene, one of 
two married Demons, i s also the 
father of five-year old sot. 

Ray Baggett has the distoction of 
being the only other married 
Demon. He was married this 
summer just before starting his first 
season as a Northwestern basketball 
player. Baggett was a startinj 
guard for the McNeese Cowboys. 
Ray is the needier of the Demons 
basketball team and has a great 
outside shot to back up his jokes. 

Another transfer guard, Wayne 
Waggoner, has come to prove 
himself to everybody. He plays with 
more heart than just about anyone 
else and is one of the most up- 
standing basketball playes. Wayne 
is ranked in the TAAC in scoring 
(10th) and after two impressive 
games against SLU and USM, he 
will proably be ranked higher. 
Wayne also made honorable 
mention player-of-the-week in the 
TAAC last week. 

Former Leesville star Jerry Lynch 
is known around the Demon 
lockerroom as the "fox-hunter " 
this term being used because he is 
supposedly always after the "foxes" 
on the campus. However most of 
his teammates say that he usually 
winds up with "bears." Jerry is in 
his third year at NSU after an 
abbreviated year last year. 

Freshman Jerry Harris is an 
import from Yates' home state of 
Tennessee. Jerry has come on to 
take alot of pressure off the Demon 
regulars when he gives them a 
breather. A more than capable 
basketball player, he is also a credit 
to the team with a very personable 

Giant, 6-8 center, Rick Goleman 
is a very good outside shooter who 

Demon Softb alters Schedule 

Six home doubleheaders highlight 
a 24-game softball schedule for the 
Northwestern State Lady Demon 
1981 softball team and first year 
head Coach James Smith. 

Smith, who is also the Lady 
Demons assistant basketball coach, 
takes over a team that was 11-15 a 
year ago. Northwestern was 11-5 
against teams from Louisiana last 
spring and claimed the state 
Division II state championship. 

The Lady Demons will open the 
1981 season on March 10 when they 
play at LSU-Alexandria. The first 
home contest will be Thursday 
March 12 against the University of 
New Orleans. Other teams that will 
play at Northwestern during the 
course of the season include LSU- 
Alexandria, Louisiana Tech, 

Nicholls State, Northeast Louisiana 
and McNeese State. 

All Northwestern home games 
will be played at Highland and all 
will be double headers that begin at 
either 2:00 or 3:00 p.m. 

Here is the 1981 softball schedule: 
March 10— at LSU-Alexandria

Demons Win Three Straight 

Demons 90 Southeastern 71 

just lacks a little bit of bulk to bump 
around with the bigger centers in the 
TAAC, is also another of the great 
students on the NSU team. 

Jim Hoops, a senior forward, and 
Phi Mu sorority's Man-of-the-Year, 
has been a three year starter for the 
Demons. He is the guy in addition 
to Waggoner has the highest moral 
standards of just about anybody 
except Billy Graham. Couple this 
with a tremendous desire to play 
basketball and you have the 
stereotype Jim Hoops. Jim has also 
been among the league leaders in 
r ebounds al l year long. 

The^Hulk", Roger Nolan is a 
walk-on who has walked right into a 
job that carries as much respon- 
siblity as any other one on the NSU 
court. Roger has to back-up 
Earnest Reliford and Fred Piper and 
so far he has done a fantastic job. 

He was responsible for keeping 
the Demons in much of their first 
two games when Piper got hurt and 
he was also responsible for breaking 
the Southeastern game wide open 
for the Demons Monday night. Big 
Rog, is about the most muscle 
bound Demon who really works his 
tail off everytime he puts on a 
Northwestern uniform. 

Probably the most talented player 
on the Demon team is Fred Piper. 
He is very dedicated to his work and 
has stayed among the TAAC leaders 
in three different departments. 
Scoring, rebounding, and field goal 
perentage. Fred has never regained 
the form he achieved just before his 
freak hand accident. However, 
before the year is out, watch for 
Fred to battle with Centenary's 
Cherokee Rhone for MVP of the 

"Big E" Earnie Reliford, is one 
ol the most happy-go-lucky players 
on the Demon Team. He loves 
everything and doesn't seem to have 
a car? in the world. From all 
outward appearances, it would seem 
that he would just as soon be cutting 
pulpwood in Ashland as playing 
center for the New York Kriicks in 
Madison Square Garden. "Big E" 
probably has more undeveloped 
talent than anybody on the Demon 
team . 

Anthony Robertson is a local boy 
who made good. AntVony came 
from Natchitoches-Central, which is 
about twenty feet down the road, 
and has brought unparralled <?n- 
thusiam to the Demon team. He is e. 
real hustler who is always ready to 
play and always give 110%. He is 
another walk-on and displays one of 
the best attitudes. 

And waiting in the shadows is 
Johnny Martin. Johnny is sitting 
out this year because he is a transfer 
from Arkansas College where he 
was among the Division leaders in 
rebounds. This guy is TALENTED. 

And there you have the Demons 
of Northwestern. As of this writing 
they are 4-8 and with any luck they 
will 18-8 and represent Nor- 
thwestern and the TAAC in the 
NCAA playoffs... and who knows, 
they may even get to play Notre 

The Northwestern Demons got 
back on the winning track with a 
resounding 90-71 thrashing of the 
Southeastern University Lions last 
Monday night. 

A very inspired Northwestern 
team brought a six game losing 
streak into Monday's game and 
gave the Lions what-for, NSU style 
as 2,000 fans looked on. 

The Demons jumped out to a 13-4 
lead and then traded baskets with 
the Lions for the remainder of the 
half until it was 45-35 NSU. 

Northwestern's Fred Piper, 
Melvin Youngblood, and Wayne 
Waggoner dominated the first half 
of play as they combined for 36 of 
the Demons 45 points. 

Waggoner hit all twelve of his 
first half points in one four minute 
stretch, and when he cooled off, 
Piper and Youngblood dominated 
the inside and the outside. 

In the second half it was still all 
Northwestern as they ran off a 
string of 1 1 straight points to put the 
game out of reach of the Lions as 
they watched their record fall to 5- 

Waggoner led the Demons in 
scoring as he chipped in 21 points 
shooting an outstanding 83% from 
the field, while Youngblood shot 
86% from the field and made 18 
points. Youngblood was also six for 
six from the free throw line. 

Piper was third in scoring with 16 
points and reserve guard Harry 
Francis had eight points. 

Piper dominated the boards as he 
grabbed a game high 13 rebounds. 

Youngblood continued to deal 
out the assists in his usual generous 
way with 10 to his credit. 

Northwestern upped its record to 
3-8 going into Thursday's game with 
the University of Southern 
Mississippi in Prather Coliseum. 

Demons 77 Ga. Southern 72 


Northwestern's Harry Francis, Jim Hoops, and Mike Greene look on with 
excitement as they watch the Demons dispose of Southern Mississipppi in 
Thursday nights game, 67-65. Hoops had 10 points and nine rebounds 
while Francis scored six points and had two steals. 

Demons 6 7 Southern Miss 65 

Two clutch free throw by Melvin 
Youngblood the last one with twelve 
seconds left gave Northwestern a 
thrilling 67-65 upset win over the 
University of Southern Mississippi 
Golden Eagles Thursday night. 

Northwestern never trailed in the 
contest as they improved their 
overall record to 4-8 and reversed 
the trend of losing the close games. 

It was a game played with all 
heart and sheer determination as 
time and time again the Demons 
held tough against repeated USM 

That determination was never 
more evident than the fact that both 
Jim Hoops and Wayne Waggoner 
played the entire game without a 

Waggoner led the Demon win 
with 17 points and he was followed 
by Fre4 Piper and Earnest Reliford 
with 12 tallies each. Hoops rounded 
out the doifale figure scorers with 10 

Waggoner teamed with Melvin 
Youngblood to hard out four assists 
and Piper and Hoops combined for 
10 and nine rebounds \o dominate 
the battle of the boards. 

Defensively not enough can be 
said about the Demons game. They 
held USM to but one player to store 
in double figures and held them to a 

44% field goal accuracy as a team. 

The Demons started the game by 
scoring the first points and then 
jumped out to a quick 13-5 lead 
before the Eagles battled back to 
within one at 19-18. 

From there it was pretty much 
back and forth as the Demons 
traded baskets with USM. 

Both teams into the lockeroom at 
halftime sensing that an upset was in 
the making as the Demons were 
ahead by four at 32-28. 

When the Demons came out to 
start the second half, the Golden 
Eagles were ready. But the Demons 
were hot \ 

Waggoner hit eight straight points 
for the Demons, but USM pulled to 
within one point at the fourteen 
minute mark. 

Northwestern pulled out in front 
over the next seven minutes as they 
built up a seemingly commanding 
eight point lead. 

But then USM got hot and pulled 
to within one point of the Demons 
with 28 seconds left. 

That is when Youngblood got 
fouled and made the front end of a 
one and one to clinch the game for 

With the loss USM dropped to 1 1- 
4. Among USM's wins was one 
over Marquette University which in 
turn beat Notre Dame. 

It was the Jim Hoops hustle show 
Saturday night as the Demons won 
their second straight down-to-the- 
wire game with a 77-72 over-time 
victory over Georgia-Southern. 

Hoops was all over the court 
hustling up balls and tipping in 
errant shots for the Demons, now 5- 
8 overall and 3-3 in TAAC play. 
Georgia-Southern dropped to 5-12 
and 0-5 in TAAC play. 

The Demons jumped out to a 
quick 12-4 lead before the Eagles 
flew back to a 16-16 tie with half the 
half over. 

Then Wayne Waggoner threw one 
in from way outside and Hoops 
tipped in two missed shots to give 
the Demons a six point lead and 
propelled them into the alftime lead 
at 29-28. 

The GSU Eagles started things off 
by tying the score at 29 on a Terry 
Fahey foul shot. Northwestern and 
GSU traded baskets for the next 
seven minutes and the game was tied 
five times in the process. Nor- 
thwestern then pulled out to an 11 

point lead before the Eagles got hot 
and finally tied the score with 41 
seconds left. 

Two Demon timeouts and an 
errant pass inside cost the Demons 
the regulation time win. 

The five minute overtime started 
with the score tied at 68. Fred Piper 
and Earnest Reliford each made the 
front end of a one-and-one to put 
the Demons in fron t by two. 

Harry Francis then scored a 
basket but GSU came right back for 
one too. From there the Demons 
allowed the Eagles but one basket 
while scoring five points themselves 
as they rolled a 77-72 win. 

Leading the scoring for Nor- 
thwestern was Waggoner with 20 
points in 44 minutes of play. 
Reliford added 17 points and Hoops 
tossed in 13. 

Reliford led all rebounders with 
11 and he was followed by Piper 
with 10 and Hoops with nine. 

Melvin Youngblood dished out 
five assists in only eighteen minutes 
of play.

Fire Marshall To Inspect Student Union 

Possible Fire Code Violations In Union 

Possible Violations 

Above is a photo of a fire alarm with a nail inserted in it. The 
nail stops the alarm from being utilized. The newspaper under 
the alarm shows the date the pictures were taken. Below is a 
photo of a fire extinguisher on the 3rd floor of the Union. 
Notice the meter and the last date it was checked and initialed. 

$10 9 000Misplaced 
During Registration 

A case of oversight and human 
error was how NSU President, Rene 
Bienvenu explained the 
misplacement of approximately 
$10,00 during Spring registration. 

The funds disappeared on 
Wednesday, Jan 14, when a money- 
bag with funds "in the vicinity of 
$10,000" in it was forgotten at the 
end of the day and left in the 

"It was an extra reserve sack," 
stated Bienvenu. "We bring 
reserve money in during 
registration. It was just not picked- 
up when all the others were picked- 

Robert LaCaze, a laborer at the 
Coliseum, told the SAUCE that he 
found the money-bag on Thursday 
evening in the concession stand in 
the West Concourse. LaCaze stated 
that he put the money-bag in the 
Janitor's Closet in the Coliseum, 
"and I gave it to them when they 
came looking for it." LaCaze states 
he gave the money back Monday 

According to LaCaze, a few days 
later he was ordered to take a week 
off from work without pay by 
President Bienvenu. When asked 
about LaCaze's suspension, 
Bienvenu stated that LaCaze was 
given the time off "...until I get all 
the facts on the case and make sure 

it wasn't a deliberate theft." 
LaCaze is scheduled to return to 
work this week sometime, but legal 
action is still a possibility, said 

When asked why it took several 
days for it to be known that $10,000 
was missing, Bienvenu replied that 
on Thursday morning, all the 
registration people went to 
Shreveport to register the nursing 

Much secrecy surrounded the 
missing money and all questions 
concerning the incident were 
directed to the President's Office. 
Carl Jones, NSU's Controller, when 
asked about the missing money 
replied, "All your statements have 
to come out of the President's 
Office. I don't have any com- 
ments." Chief James Lee of the 
University Police could not be 
reached for comment, but a 
University Police Spokesperson, 
Sandra Moreau also directed the 
SAUCE to the President's Office 
and would make no comment. 

According to Major Burl Lee of 
the Natchitoches Police Dep- 
artment, University Police, City 
Police, the Sheriff's Office, and the 
State Police were all involved early 
in the investigation but later 
withdrew leaving it solely to the 
University Police. 

By David LaVere 
Sauce Editor 

Three possible Fire Code 
violations have recently been dis- 
covered in the Student Union 
building at NSU. 

The possible violations include 
the use of the fire alarm in the 
Union to summon the custodians, 
the insertion of nails in several fire 
alarms to stop their being utilized, 
and neglecting to recharge or even 
check several fire extinguishers 
distributed about the Union 
building. Several fire extinguishers 
appear not to have been checked, 
dated, and initialed in several years. 

In a telephone conversation with 
Deputy State Fire Marshall, E. F. 
Darnell, Darnell, upon description 
of the possible violations, replied 
that all three were indeed violations. 

Darnell was especially upset over 
the reported use of the fire alarm 
system being used as a signal. 
"They're breaking the State Fire 
Code," said Darnell. "That is 
suppose to be a fire alarm. It is a 
violation of any fire code when 
you're using it as anything else." 

Deputy State Fire Marshall R. E. 
Posey, who inspects the university 
for the state, was also upset about 
the signals being sent by fire alarm. 
"I do know that they're not suppose 
to be using it except for a fire alarm. 
A fellow wouldn't know if it was a 
fire or whether they're just calling 
the janitor," said Posey. 

According to James White, a 
custodian in the Student Union, the 
fire alarms are used to summon him 
and the other custodians in the 
building. "If they don't see me, they 
buzz the fire alarm," said White. 
White also stated that there is a 
code system that is used when 
signals are sent by fire alarm. 
"We all got different buzzes. One 
buzz calls the maid. Two buzzes 
calls Willie Johnson, the other 
janitor. Three buzzes calls all three 
of us, and four buzzes calls me." 

When asked how long this 
practice had been going on, White 
replied, "Well, I came here nine 
years ago... and I found them 
doing it." Asked who authorized 
the practice, White said, "Mr. 
Wilson told us, so we all know our 

Paula Robertson of the Student 
Union Office verified that a fire 
alarm code signal was used to call 
the custodians. Asked if this was 
legal, Jim Hurd, an advisor to the 
Student Union Governing Board 
replied that the practice was not 
illegal since they were not 
"breaking" the fire alarm but only 
sounding the buzzer. The Student 
Union office uses a small Allen- 
wrench key to sound the buzzer. 

"A key makes no difference," 
said Darnell. "If they're into the 
fire alarm system, then they are 
interfering in it. Thats just like 
turning in a false alarm." 

"I know they're not suppose to be 
using it for a signal. It is not sup- 
posed to be used except in an 
emergency or a fire drill," said 

Concerning the fire alarms with 
the nails inserted in them. The nails 
had been cut down to exactly the 
correct size to fit in the alarm. The 
nail is in place where a small glass 
bar is suppose to be. The alarm is 
unoperable with the nail in it. 

"They might as well not have an 
alarm system," commented Darnell 
about the nails in the alarms. 
"There is no way to use an alarm 
with a nail in it like that." 

According to Darnell, all fire 
extinguishers that are to be used in a 

building must be checked, dated and 
initialed at least once a year. On the 
third floor of the Union, one of the 
two fire extinguishers in the halls 
needed to be recharged and had not 
been checked, dated, or initialed 
since 1978. 

Posey stated that he would 
probably beein his three-week long 

annual fire inspection of Nor- 
thwestern on about March 1, but 
Darnell stated that an investigation 
of these possible violations could 
take place as early as this week. 

"Someday, someone is going to 
get hurt because of these 
violations," said Posey. 

Microbiology Program 
Receives Commendation 

Northwestern's master of science 
program in microbiology has 
received a rare commendation of 
excellence from the Louisiana 
Board of Regents, which cited the 
"enthusiastic" faculty and modern 
laboratory facilities. 

The NSU curriculum if one of 
only 19 graduate programs awarded 
a certificate of commendation by 
the Board of Regents, which has 
reviewed more than 400 programs at 
colleges and universities across the 
state since 1975. 

Established in 1959, the Nor- 
thwestern master of science 
curriculum in microbiology is the 
first NSU program to be recognized 
by the Board of Regents for 
academic excellence. 

"The master's degree program in 
microbiology at Northwestern is on 
the threshold of high quality," said 
Edith Kirkpatrick, chairman of the 
Board of Regents' academic affairs 
committee. "It is appropriate in 
subject matter and is emphasizing 
modern trends in microbiology." 

When presenting the com- 
mendation to NSU president Dr. 
Rene J. Bienvenu and Dr. Jerry 
Allen, chairman of the NSU Depart- 
ment of Microbiology and 
Biochemistry, Mrs. Kirkpatrick 
cited the program's course and 
research content, laboratory 
facilities which she said were 
"excellent and well-equipped" and 
the faculty and students, who were 
described as "capable and en- 

"More importantly," Mrs. 
Kirkpatrick stated, "the university 
administration strongly supports the 
departmental programs." 

Allen said the NSU microbiology 
program, which was once a branch 
of biology dealing with microscopic 
forms of life, has been expanded to 
include advanced studies of the 
body's immunity system, viruses 
which affect man, bacteria, plants 
and animals, the cellular and 
molecular approach to solving 
scientific problems and the 
molecular basis of hereditary 

The NSU department chairman 
said, "The philosophy of our 
graduate program in microbiology 
has always been to provide a pool of 
well-trained scientific persons 
beyond the baccalaureate degree 
and to service medical and in- 
dustrial institutions in our region 
with personnel trained at the 
master's level." 

Allen pointed out that more than 
half of the graduates of the NSU 
program have gone on to other 
universities across the nation to 
successfully complete doctoral 
programs in microbiology. 

"We have been relatively suc- 
cessful," he said. "We have 
graduates with master's degrees in 
microbiology who are now involved 
in research and laboratory work. 
Many are employed in supervisory 

positions, and many of our 
graduates are directors of private 
and governmental laboratories.' 
among Northwestern graduates in 
microbiology are several directors 
of medical laboratories, two who 
are employed at the Frederich 
Cancer Research Center, one who is 
director of the USDA Laboratory in 
Athens, Ga., and another who is 
director of research for Ralston- 
Purina Company. 

"We provide a broad base which 
will adequately train students who 
plan to enter the job market from 
the master's level," said Allen, 
"and we also provide a strong 
foundation for students who desire 
to further their educational work." 

Allen credited Northwestern's 
microbiology graduate students for 
their role in the Board of Regents 
commendation. "Students make the 
program," he said. "Our students 
have typically done well in graduate 
school and also in their respective 
lines of work. The students are in 
great demand professionally." 

The "capable and enthusiastic" 
faculty praised by the Regents is 
comprised of Allen, Dr. Nadya C. 
Keller, Dr. Thomas W.Griffith and 
Dr. Benny D. Barridge. "Our 
faculty is in the mainstream of 
modern molecular science," said 
Allen. "They all have a great deal of 
experience and expertise in scientific 

Allen added, "The master's 
degree program in microbiology is 
basically a research degree. It 
requires that students not only be 
able to assimilate scientific facts in 
the classroom but also that they be 
able to use that information to 
solve scientific problems in the 

According to Allen, students in 
the NSU program are required to 
develop original research projects 
under the supervision of faculty 
members, and papers developed 
from the students' research are 
frequently published in scientific 

The NSU department chairman 
said outstanding students are at- 
tracted to the university's 
microbiology program "by a supe- 
rior, dedicated faculty and well- 
equipped laboratory facilities to be 
utilized in research." 

He said Northwestern's extensive 
microbiology research facilities 
include an electron microscope, 
radioisotope facility, new and 
modern spectrophotometric 
equipment and isoelectric focusing 
and electrophoretrc equipment. 

Northwestern is one of only two 
universities in Louisiana offering a 
master of science degree in 
microbiology, and Allen said the 
faculty's "commitment to good 
graduate-level education and 
laboratories that are so extensively 
equipped help set Northwestern's 
program apart from others in this 
region of the nation." 

Assaults Reported At Warrington 

By Sonja Henry 
Sauce Organizations Editor 

Reports of sexual assault of 
numerous female students at the 
Warrington campus in Shreveport 
were confirmed by Detective Don 
Ashley, of the Shreveport Police 

"There have been three attacks in 
an off campus parking lot," said 
Woody Woodruff, the Warrington 
representative who first brought the 
reports to light at the Jan. 26 SGA 

Ashley, the officer assigned to 
investigate the three official reports, 
one of which occurred on the 
campus parking lot, stated that 
three other students told him that 
they had been attacked also. At a 
rape seminar conducted at 
Warrington the same day, several 

more women told of similar attacks. 

According to Asley, the assaults 
took place in a two day period on 
Jan. 15 and 16th, and were com- 
mitted by a black male. The male 
was approximately 27 years old, and 
had seen by students in the parking 
lot and on campus for some time. 
The women were convinced that the 
attacker was not a student at 

"There are no security officers," 
said Woodruff. He felt that 
Warrington needed a security of- 
ficer to prevent further incidences of 
this kind, all of which took place 
during the daylight hours. Ashley 
agreed that there was urgent need 
for security protection. He stated 
that the Shreveport Police try to 
patroll the area during class breaks, 
but did not have the manpower to 
constantly patrol the area. 

James Lee, Chief of Security at 
NSU was contacted by the SAUCE 
concerning the matter, but was 
unavailable for comment. 

"There have been 12 rapes in the 
last three months. the 
Schumpert Hospital parking lot 
behind the campus," said 
Woodruff. That rumor was 
dispelled by Ashley. "There have 
been some purse snatchings, but no 
recent rapes," stated Ashley. 

Ashley did feel that the assailant 
who had harrassed the students at 
Warrington could have attacked 
women at Schumpert, but because 
of the problem of women not 
reporting the crimes, no in- 
formation was available. 

Ashley said that the attacks were 
limited to sexual assault, not rape.

SGA Faces Warrington Problem 

Three female students reportedly 
were attacked by a single assailant 
on an off-campus parking lot at the 
Warrington Campus in Shreveport. 
That was the grim news facing the 
SGA when they convened Monday, 
Jan. 26 in the SGA Conference 
r oom. 

Woody Woodruff, the 
Warrington Campus representative 
to the SGA, felt that the attacks 
may have been prevented if the 
students did not have to park a 
block from the campus and walk to 
the university facility without 
adequate security protection. 
"There are no security officers. The 
Shreveport police drive by about 
once every three house," said 

Woodruff felt that in the past, 
incidents of this sort have been 
"swept under the carpet." He urged 
the SGA to take immediate action 

on the matter by voicing a com- 
plaint in the form of a bill. 

In other SGA business, Helene 
Morgan, Chairperson of the Spirit 
Committee, reported on a lack of 
SGA assistance in that committee's 
endeavors. The abscence of SGA 
member's aid in decorating for 
basketball games has resulted in the 
Basketball team thinking we're not 
behind them, said Morgan. "That's 
a bad reflection on us." 

The subject of pre-registration 
provoked a lively discussion when a 
bill to establish a committee to 
research the best form of pre- 
registration for use in the fall of 
1981 was proposed by Joe Stamey. 

Two persons were approved 
Monday by the SGA to serve on 

Elections Commisioner Sworm In 

separate committees. Jim McKeller 
was appointed to the Traffic Safety 
Committee, and Steve Soileau was 
approved to serve on the 
Publications Committee. 

Stamey felt that pre-registration 
would eliminate the long lines 
during official registration, and 
decrease the amount of students lost 
to other universities during semester 

One SGA member felt that the 
bill should be tabled until a later 
date because not enough research 
had been done. Stamey replied that 
enough research had been done. 
"Too many bills ar tabled and never 
acted on," said Stamey angrily. The 
bill was approved unanimously. 

The finalists to fill four of five 
vacancies on the Cheerleading 
squad were announced. They are: 
Allison Arthur, Darlen Hall, Harlan 
Harvey, and Theresa Peterson. 

Lonnie Brooks 

Lonnie Brooks will be appearing in the Student Union 
Ballroom tonight at 7:30 p.m. Appearing with Brooks will 
be blues artist Larry Magnum. Admission is free to students 
with full-time I.D. cards. 

Warrington Assaults 

(Continued from Page 1) 

"That's how a rapist starts," 
warned Ashley. "They start as 
peeping toms." Ashley expressed 
his fears that as soon as the thrill of 
harrassing these women wears off, 

he will committ a rape. 

As if Wednesday, Jan. 29th, no 
more reports of assault at 
Warrington had been received by 
Ashley. No arrests have been made 
and there are no suspects in the case 

Dianna Kemp, State Fair 
Chairman of the SGA, was sworn in 
as the new Commissioner of 
Elections at Jan. 19's meeting of the 
SGA. Ms. Kemp will replace Mark 
Manuel as Commissioner, who 
resigned last semester. 

Manuel resigned because of other 
obligations and job opportunities 
this semester. 

Dianna Kemp 

Ms. Kemp was appointed by the 
Executive Council for the SGA, 
comprised of Cliff Lopez, SGA 
President, Chip Cole, Vice- 
President, Pat Wartelle, Treasurer, 
Karen Murphy, Secretary, Nancy Jo 
Roberts, Secretarial Assistant, and 
different cabinet members. 

The countil reviewed applicatons 
for the position and voted on one 
applicant. A motion is made at an 
SGA meeting to approve the ap- 
plicant and if the motion passes, the 
applicant is then sworn in. 

Kevin Bartholomew, Chairman 
of the Elections Revision Com- 
mittee, will soon introduce a bill for 
several revisions to the elections 
code. An important revision in the 
code if the bill passes is that 
commuters can nominate. The bill 
will be introduced in the next week 
or so, estimated Bartholomew in the 
Jan. 19 meeting of the SGA. 

Kemp announced the spring 
election dates as follows: 

Monday, Feb. 23, filings for SGA 
offices open. There are 6 executive 
officers' positions and eleven 

Tuesday, March 10, filing close. 

Wednesday, March 11, 
statements and pictures are to be 

submitted. Statements are to be 100 
words or less. 

Monday, March 16, Warrington 
Campus and ADOS votes. 

Wednesday, March 18, NSU 
campus votes. 

Wednesday, March 25, any run- 
off votes. 

Ms. Kemp commented, "every 
election last semester had some 
snag, and we voted twice in all but 
one. As long as I am in office that 
will never happen." 

She will be in office until the 
officers' election. 

Student Services Director Smith Meets SGA 

By Sonja Henry 
Sauce Organization Editor 

A meeting of the Student Services 
Committee of the SGA was held 
Monday, Jan. 26, in the SGA 
Conference room. Sam Smith, 
Director of Student Services was on 
hand to field questions posed by the 
students. The meeting was held to 
discuss problems that students are 
concerned about. 

The rooming together of black 
and white students was a topic of 
discussion when it was announced 
that a letter in the SGA Suggestion 
Box stated the the rooming together 
of black and white students was an 
embarrassing problem. After 
discussing possible alternatives to 
the present system of housing 
students, Diana Kemp, Chairperson 
of the Elections Committee, 

suggested that "Incoming freshmen 
in Inside View can DUt -pictures of 
themselves on their housing cards. 
That way we can put whites with 
whites and blacks with blacks." 

"The friendliness of students has 
decreased," commented Smith on 
changes in the university since he 
received his Master's degree in 1977

from Northwestern. Smith stated 
that he had heard too many com-' 
ments such as: "Why would anyone i 
want to come back here?". Smith j 
continued, "Yes, enrollment is! 
down, but I don't think this is the 
hour of doom. I don't think things 
are as bad or as gloomy as has been 
presented on several occasions." 

In other business, the SGA Loan 
Fund is targeted by Smith as an area 
where student input is needed. The 
students have a "tidy sum" of 
money, but many students are not 
aware of the availability of it. Smith 
said that in the future he would be 
directing proposals to the committee 
to bring attention to the fact that the 
Loan Fund was available to 
qualified students. "It's the 
student's money. I feel like I 
set back and make

Housing complaints were voicedi 
concerning the failure of th« ( 
University to provide paint for use' 
in the students' dorm rooms. In thej 
past, students who wished to paifl'l 
their dorm rooms were required to 
furnish their own paint. The policy! 
has been changed, and Smith exv 
pects the Student Ser 
Department to furnish paint within! : 
the next few weeks. 

Other housing issues ranged froflj 
dorm residents being angered ai 
being moved from room to rooifl 
each semester, to the non- 
availability of private rooms ifl

that the reason no official privat* 
rooms were provided in Louisian*!

If you have a question concerning 
veterans benefits or need in- 
formation or assistance, call the 
Veterans Administration Regional 
Office in New Orleans using the toll- 
free telephone line to get the answer. 

Toll-free telephone service is now 
available in all 50 states providing 
direct access to Veterans Ad- 
ministration Regional Offices, 
Anthony R. Lentini, Director of the 
New Orleans Regional Office, said 
today in reminding veterans and 
their dependents of the service 
which is available from 7:45 a.m. to 
5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. 

Because the service is so popular, 
Lentini said veterans should have at 
hand as much VA-related in- 
formation about themselves as 
possible when making a call. 

Lentini pointed out the VA 
counselors can provide faster service 
when the veteran's claim number, 
military serial number or Social 
Security number is provided. 

The following toll-free number is 
provided for use by veterans and 
their dependents in the State of 
Louisiana in need of assistance from 
the Veterans Administration 
Regional Office in New Orleans: 1-

Farming Space A vailable 

A limited amount of space on the 
Northwestern farm is being made 
available to the university's married 
and single students who might be 
interested in growing a few rows of 
vegetables this spring and summer. 

Students who would like to 
develop a small garden plot must 
contact Dr. Sam Misuraca in the 
Department of Agriculture by 
calling 357-5912. Information 
concerning this new experience for 
students also can be obtained in 
Room 100 of Williamson Hall on 
the NSU campus. 

"We think we have some 
students, especially married 
students living on campus, who 
would enjoy growing their own 
vegetables," said Misuraca. "Of 
course, they would have to take care 
of their own little garden, and this 
includes keeping the weeds out. But 
most important, they will have to 
respect and not disturb what 
another student is attempting to 
grow in the same area." 

Misuraca said strict policies will 
be developed to achieve maximum 
benefits from such an endeavor. 

"Right now," said Misuraca, 
"we need to hear from the students 
to find out just how many students 
are interested in having a little 
garden plot of their own, and we 
need to hear from these students as 
soon as possible."

Quotations From 

Editor La Vcrc 

Vote Intelligently 

Elections for Representatives-at-Large will be coming up soon, and NSU 
students should begin thinking about who they will be voting for and what 
they're looking for in a candidate. 

I know for a fact that there are many truly concientious representatives in 
the SGA. Those who feel strongly about the students and about NSU. 

But it is time that the student body began taking a hand in the election 
process and the actual government of the students. Students should look at 
the candidates and their representatives to show accountability. Basically 
what I mean is that if the representative you voted for last election has not 
been carrying his or her weight and not voting the way you think they 
ought, let them know about it and then vote them out. 

The students are actually in control as long as they will turn out to vote 
and vote for a candidate that they feel will do the most for them. This is 
supposed to be the way the system works. 

In the not to distant past, the position of representative in the SGA was a 
fairly easy one to obtain. Usually you only had to file, many times there 
was not even an opponent to run against you. Often the position became 
solely a social position. Fortunately, this trend seems to be on the wane. 
But too often we have heard the same monotonous slogans from the 
candidates - "I'm interested in NSU and it's future." Empty words. Look 
for a candidate that is a little more specific than that. 

Now is the time to really put our representatives to work. To take a 
phrase from the Nixon era, I believe that there is a "silent majority" at 
NSU. A majority of frustrated students who seem to get the bad end of 
every deal when dealing with the powers that be. If this majority can only 
realize that if they would put their vote to work, they might be able to fight 
the frustration a little bit. 

You can help fight it by wisely choosing your representative. Vote for 
those that will address themselves to the issues of the day. Please don't vote 
for someone just because they are white, black, pretty, handsome, or 
whatever. Vote considering their qualifications or they apply themselves to 
the issues. But remember, your representative must know what you feel is 
an issue. 

Th'« election might be a good time to begin something new concerning 
elections, namely, conducting a forum for the candidate, where students 
could question them on their platforms. This would defr ely make the 
candidates accountable. 

So please, when elections come around, know who you're g ^ to vote 
for and why. And remember, after studying the issues anu the candidates, 
you still have to get out and vote. 

Remember, Please! 

Well, we can all sit back and relax now. The Hostages are home. 
They've been wined and dined. Given a ticker-tape parade in New York. 
And the homes of the Hostages have bestowed upon them a varity of other 
tokens of appreciation. They have received the accolades of a grateful 

While these Americans certainly deserve the glory they have received, we 
should not forget those Americans that most certainly deserve glory and 
praise butt did not receive any - the Viet Nam War veterans and especially 

Vietnam was a bad acid trip in the American experience, and everything 
connected with it has rapidly been shuffled to the background. It was a 
dishonorable war, nothing compared to the honorable wars like World War 
I and World War II. And when the soldiers and P.O.W.s came home from 
Vietnam, instead of recognition, ticker-tape parades, yellow Cadillacs, and 
the such, they received not a thing. Certainly not the praise of a grateful 

While the former hostages were certainly mistreated during their 444-days 
in captivity, was the mistreatment near as bad as that received by the 
P.O.W.s at the hands of the North Vietnamese. Is it any more honorable to 
spend 14 months in the hands of irate captors or 12 months continuously 
fighting an elusive enemy in the jungle? 

While we revel in the release of the former hostages, please, let's not 
forget about those that went through an ordeal comparable or even worse 
than that of the hostages. Remember the Vietnam vets and P.O.W.s. Also 
remember, all the hostages came back, but not everybody came back who 
went to Vietnam. 

Have we totally forgotten about 
our far-away brothers at the campus 
in Shreveport? They are as much a 
part of this University as any of the 
rest of us! 

I say this because at the weekly 
Student Government Association 
meeting, Woody Woodruff, SGA 
Representative to Shreveport, said 
that three girls on their campus had 
been sexually assaulted, on campus! 

Apparently, a black male of 
about' 27 years, had been hanging 
around the campus for days before 
one girl, (whose identity is n6t 
known to me), reported to 
Shreveport Police that she had been 

As she was giving her statement to 
Shreveport detectives, two other 
girls stepped forward and stated 
that they, too, had been assaulted. 

The next day, at a Rape 
Awareness Seminar held for the 
campus, more girls stated that they 
had seen the man hanging around, 
some stating that he had said 
"lewd" things to them. 

What is being done about it? Not 
much can be done about it, some 
say. Shreveport Police Chief 
Clifford Heap in a phone interview, 
stated that he wasn't even aware of 
the problem, saying, "I wasn't 
apprised of it". 

Shreveport Police have been 
patroling the area though, but have 
not sighted the man, as of yet, and 
there is not much they can do until 
they do find him. 

If you're thinking, "Why isn't 
there a campus security guard 
around when these things happen", 
it's because the Shreveport campus 
doesn't have any security. "Why", 
you ask. Don't ask me. 

Dean of Students Bosarge, as of 
this writing, has not been available 
for comment. Head of Campus 
Security, Jimmy Lee, has been out 
of town, so you can't ask them. 

I think that this question deserves 
to have an answer, so President 
Bienvenu if you have any comment, 
now's your chance... 

Well, President Ronald Reagan, 
in his first move of office, has 
decided that he would like to take a 

few more dollars out of your 
already overstreached budget. 
Recently he did away with the Oil 
Price Control Standards. Thats 
right, he is going to let the already 
rich oil companies raise their prices. 
That will mean an immediate jump 
in the price of gasoline of about five 
to six cents. Who knows where it 

will stop. 

The reason behind it all, is that 
the President thinks that the oil 
companies will put the extra ear- 
nings into finding more oil at home, 
thus reducing our dependancy on 
foreign oil. 

What he doesn't realize is that the 
extra money will probably go into 

buying another Cadillac for the 
Company President. You see, he 
doesn't have to worry about how 
much his gas is costing. Thanks 

The next thing he will probably 
do is to lift the grain embargo on 
Russia, raising the price of our daily

Intramural Program, 'Recruiting Tool'? 

For the past three years Nor- 
thwestern has enjoyed one of the 
finest Intramural programs in the 
state, and I dare say for a school our 
size, the nation. Without a doubt 
none of this would have ever come 
about if it weren't for our In- 
tramural Director Ginger Parrish. I 
would hate to think what Dolly 
Parton would have done to her boss 
if he made her work the hours that 
Ginger puts in. "9 to 5" would 
make a good day for the average 
Intramual Director, but Ginger goes 
so much further than the average 
Intramural Director. When NSU 
goes to look for a great recruiting 
tool, they dont have to look past the 
Intramural program. As they say at 
the Intramural office, they have 
"something for everyone!" Ginger 
and the Intramural program are 
definitely bug plusses for Nor- 
thwestern. Hope we can keep her 
around for awhile... 

How long is the Northwestern 
community going to have to put up 
with the eyesore at the north end of

munity members have halted the 
dumping. The promise from the 
city was if their sales tax proposal

corrected. As anyone can tell there 
has been no big move to stop the

an asset to Northwestern to allow 
the city to continue to abuse it. Give 
the Mayor a call and tell him how 
you feel about it...

Lady Demons Extend Win Streak To Five 

Tracy Taylor clears the boards in action against Louisiana Col- 
lege last Monday. Taylor hauled in five caroms in the 78-71 
Lady Demon win, while scoring 12 points. Mary Humphrey is 
with Taylor as a backup as Lori Thames(44), Erica 


Northwestern's Lady Demons 
extended their winning streak to five 
games, picking up two wins to 
improve their season mark to 13-7. 

Last Monday, the Lady Demons 
avenged an early season loss to 
Louisiana College by topping the 
Lady Wildcats 78-71 before 500 fans 
in Prather Coliseum. The early 
season LC win had broken an eight- 
game losing streak for the 1980 
Division II semi-finalists. 

"We just got a super effort 
against LC," said Lady Demons 
boss Pat Pierson. "We were really 
wanting revenge after they beat us 
early in the year. I was just real 
pleased with the way we played." 

The game stayed close in the early 
going until Northwestern's Erica 
Dupree hit a bomb from the top of 
the key to push NSU out in front 19- 

The lead ballooned to as much as 
nine before Northwestern settled on 
an eight-point half-time advantage. 

After the break, the Lady 
Demons really got rolling by 
blowing out to a huge 21 -point lead 
with 5:15 remaining. Over the first 
15 minutes of the second half the 
NSU squad outdid their LC 
counterparts 32-19 to get the big 

Pierson substituted freely over the 
final minutes as the Lady Wildcats 
finally found the mark and closed 
the ap to more respectable seven 
points by game's end. 

Perhaps the key to the win was 
the superb defensive effort of Lady 
Demons Sharon Brown and Kim 
Paulk on LC Ail-American Sheila 

Dupree(ll), and Becky McGuffee(20) look on. 

Northwestern and the City of Natchitoches have a 
bizarre relationship and I can't for the life of me figure 
it out. 

People of the community for the most part support 
the university, cheer for the athletic teams, and send 
their children to the local school. 

There is however, a large segment of the population 
that wai i nothing more than to see NSU fall flat on its 
face, p' ople who actually enjoy seeing Northwestern 

Natchitoches sometimes reminds me of a real-life 
Payton Place where grudges are made to he held and 
everyone is out to get the other guy. 

This is particularly true in the area of athletics. Over 
years, the City has supplied countless athletes, some 
good, some not so good ones didn't. 

That may be okey in a city the size of Monroe, Lake 
Chalres, or Lafayette, but in Smalltown, U.S.A. people 
get hacked. 

One guy who didn't get to play stays here with the 
home folks and gripes and complains. Another might 
bitch because his or her little boy or girl didn't see as 
much action as they would like. It might even be a 
friend who didn't see that much action. 

Others hold grudges because Joe Jock from the local 
school didn't get a scholarship. And if he did, they are 
chapped because he wasn't "used" right. 
Everybody is a coach and everyone has a complaint. 

over, they find the attitudes of many to be a turn-off. A 
player wants to go somewhere that appreciates its 
athletes and athletic teams, not to Payton Place where 
everyone is jealous of another's accomplisments. 

I wouldn't trade jobs with A.L. Williams and Wayne 
Yate for anything in the world. They are the ones who 
have to battle the Natchitoches Negativism constantly 
and it is a thankless job. 

One thing is for certain, the relationship between the 
two parties needs to be improved. People of Nat- 
chitoches need to be constantly reminded that NSU has 
served the city well for nearly 100 years, and with their 
help will do so for another 100. 

We need to stress the positive and quash the negative. 
This is our university and we can make it number one in 
the hearts of many if we try. 

If we don't give it our best shot, we very well might 
slip into permanent second class status. That would be 
a horrible victory for a very narrow-minded minority... 

On a lighter note, it's good to see former-Demon 
great Sidney Thornton back in town doing his student- 
teaching this semester. 

You know the man is making a bundle playing for the 
Steelers, and many might think he's satisfied with that. 
Apparently he's not, and as far as I'm concerned, that's 

Too many times in this day and age, athletes go to 
college to participate in athletic, and as soon as their

"crimes" and is found guilty without a trial. The 
school is belittled into the position of being "second- 
rate" by many of the locals, and eventually it hurts the 
local recruting. 

It's bad when you can't get the home folks to support 
you, because when outsiders come to look the place 

When a Sidney Thornton comes back to school, 
despite the fact that he has made it to the big time, it has 
to inspire others.

digits for the Lady Demons, adding 
12 points to the winning cause. 
Linda Jones led the team in assists 
with seven. 

Thompson's former Pitkin High 
School teammate, Dena Cain, led 
the visitors in the scoring depart- 
ment with 17 points. Beth Poole 
chipped in 15 and pulled down seven 
errant shots and Myra Myrick

One of the big differences in the 
game was in field goal percentages. 
Northwestern hit 31 of 60 tries from 
the field for a hot 51.6 percent 
mark, while LC hit a cool 36.3 
percent by making just 24 of 66 

Win number five in the streak 
came Saturday night in Lafayette as 
the Lady Demons used an out- 
standing first-half effort to whip 
USL's Lady Cajuns 82-70 before a 
sparse crown. 

The Northwestern women played 
near-perfect roundball in the first 20 
minutes of the game to take an 
insurmountable 18-point, 51-33, 
lead into the dressing room. 

"We played an excellent first half 
against USL, as good a half as we 
have played all year," Pierson said. 
"We lost some of our intensity in 
the second half, but our depth paid 
off in the end. I'm just a little 
disappointed that we got com- 
placent in the second half." 

USL did manage to outscore the 
Lady Demons 37-31 over the final 
20 minutes of the contest, but that 

advantage wasn't enough to 
overcome the huge Northwestern 


Brown turned in the game's 
highest scoring figures by chunking 
in 15 points, nine of which came 
from the foul line on 13 attempts. 

Marilyn Gates followed Brown 
with 13 points, while clearing the 
boards 11 times to lead the NSU 
squad in that department. Linda 
Jones also got into double figures 
with 10 points. 

D'Nicea Dangerfield paced the 
Lady Cajun attack with 14 markers. 
Sabrina Simmons was good for 13, 
w hile Katherine Bell added 10 more 
for the losers. 

The Lady Demons will return to 
action Friday night after a six-day 
layoff. The Lady Mavericks of the 
University of Texas at Arlington 
will come to town for a 7:30 mat- 
chup in Prather Colisuem. 

Less than 24 house later. Nor- 
thwestern will journey to Ruston to 
take on the top-ranked Louisiana 
Tech Lady Techsters. The 6 p.m. 
contest in Tech's Memorial Gym 
will be the only meeting between the 
two schools in regular season play. 

Louisiana College's Dena Cain collides with NSU's Mary 
Humphrey as she tries to toss this layup in. Cain sacked up the 
shot and a free throw to complete a three-point play, but her 
efforts weren't enough as NSU avenged an early-season loss to 
the Lady Wildcats, taking a 78-71 decision last Monday in Pra- 
ther Coliseum. 

Miller Athletes of the Week 

Marilyn Gates 

Senior Center Fred Piper and junior center Marilyn Gates earn this week's Miller Athlete of

Split With Grambling and Hardin-Simmons 

Demons Blow Out Portland St. 

The Trans America Athletic 
Conference race is slowly starting to 
turn into anybody's race. Currently 
the Demons are tied for fifth place 
with a 3-3 loop mark L League leader 
Centenary is at 5-1 followed by 
Houston Batpist at 4-1. Incidentally 
both Centenary and Houston 
Baptist hold one point wins over the 
Demons. And Northwestern's other 
TAAC loss came at the hands of 
Northeast by a one point margin- 

Northwestern then, is just three 
points away from a perfect 6-0 
TAAC record and the league lead. 

As a team the Demons are scoring 
72.9 points for third place among 
TAAC members and their op- 
ponents are scoring 71.2 which is 
fifth best in the TAAC. The 
Demons are also tied for fifth in 
field goal percent with a .473

Earnest Reliford and Melvin

free throw percentage with a .736

has the real second best free throw 
percentage with a .795 mark but 
because he has only 39 attempts he

tough opponents in Stroud Field 
this spring. The home opener will be 
against always strong Central 
Missouri on February 25. Other 
teams that will bring good baseball 
teams to challenge the Demons 
include Sam Houston State for four 
games, McNeese State for four 
games and Southland Conference 
powers Lamar and Louisiana Tech. 

The season opener will be 
February 21 at Grambling followed 
by a pair of games the following day 
at Southwestern Louisiana. The 
Demons will open the home 
schedule with the four-game series 
against Central Missouri followed 
by a four-game series with Trans 
America foe Arkansas-Little Rock. 

An added incentive for success 
this season is a chance to host the 
Trans America Conference tour- 
nament at the end of the season. 
The winner of the West Division of 
the league will ge t the host spot.

A late second half surge keyed by 
< Demons Ray Baggett, Wayne 
■ Waggoner and Fred Piper propelled 
the Demons to their fourth straight 
victory, a 78-70 win over the 
Hardin-Simmons Cowboys in 
Prather Coliseum. 

Waggoner tossed in 16 points in 
the last 15 minutes of play to help 
the Demons erase a nine point 
Cowboy lead. Piper hit eight points 
and Baggett tossed in six during that

Hoops Slams One Through 

Northwestern's Jim Hoops slams one home for the Demons 
against Hardin-Simmons during the Demons 78-70 victory over 
the visiting Cowboys last Monday night in Prather Colesium. 
Hoops finished the night with six points and five rebounds for 
the Demons. 

"We're looking forward to league 
play because we think we have an 
excellent place to hold the con- 
ference tournament," said Smith. 
"But Centenary has a good club and 
we always have good games with 
Northeast so we know we will have 
our work cut out for us to win the 
division." Northwestern, Nor- 
theast, Centenary and Hardin- 
Simmons make up the Western 
Division of the Trans America 
baseball league. 

In addition to those schools 
already mentioned the Demons will 
also host Wisconsin-Stevens Point, 
Hardin-Simmons, Louisiana 
College, Southwestern, Stephen F. 
Austin and Grambling. 

The Demons return two of the top 
three hitters from last season, led by 
outfielder Darrel Toussaint who led 
the team with a .327 average. 
Second baseman Doug Guelde, who 
is pictured on the front of the 1981 
NCAA baseball guide, hit .315 last 
season and led the team in stolen 

"I think we have the chance to be 
a real good team this season," said 
Smith looking ahead. "Our defense 
should be solid and we have good 
speed in the outfield. Our young pit- 
chers have shown they can throw 
hard and our success will depend on 
how they come around. We've 
certainly had good weather and we 
should be ready when the season 

The Trans America tournament 
will be held April 30 thru May 3 at

Piper Lays It In 

Northwestern's Fred Piper lays one up and in during the 
Demons 78-70 drubbing of the Hardin-Simmons Cowboys 
Monday night. Piper scored 22 points and grabbed 11 
rebounds to lead the Demons in both departments while

the night. 

Rifle Team Sets Sights 
On Nicholls State 

The Northwestern Rifle Team, 
under the direction of Captain R.K. 
Lomax, will travel to Nicholls State 
in Thibodeaux February 27 to 
compete in the Mardi Gras In- 
vitation Rifle Meet. The team, 
which is sponsered by the NSU- 
ROTC, will compete in a half in- 
ternational meet. 

In a half international meet each 
member shoots his .22 caliber rifle 
twenty times from upright, 
kneeling, and lying positions. There 
are 600 possible points for each 
member. The team with the highest 
total wins and the top three in- 
dividuals in the meet will recieve 

The Demon riflers are currently 
preparing for the meet by shooting 
for one hour, three times weekly in 
the indoor rifle range located in the 
Military Sciences Building. 
"Because of the different body 
positions required in riflery, most 
people tire and become inacurate 

after shooting for long periods of 
time. Therefore the practice 
sessions are limited to one hour." 
commented Captain Lomax. 

While the Rifle team already has 
some fine shooters, membership is 
open to anyone. "Membership is 
open to anyone who wishes to learn 
the fine art of shooting." Captain 
Lomax stated. "However, to 
remain on the team a rifle member 
must come to practice, maintain a 
two point grade average, and 
average .235 out of 300 points 
shooting." Some of the members 
are also enrolled in a two hour 
Advanced Riflery course. 

Rifle members are under no 
obligation to the ROTC or any 
other organization. The rifle team 
is a campus student organization 
with a charter from the SGA. 

Persons interested in joinging the 
Rifle team should should contact

Sciences Building.

NSU 63 Grambling 66 

Two free throws by Grambling's 
Wi Uiam Hobdy with seven seconds 
left clinched a 66-63 victory for the 
Tigers over the Northwestern 
Demons Wednesday night in 

The loss dropped the Demons 
record to 6-9 and in the process 
snapped the Demons four game win 
streak. Grambling upped its record 
to 13-5 and ran their win streak to 
six straight over the Demons. 

Despite the loss, Northwestern's 
Fred Piper passed the 1,000-point 
mark for a career when he scored his 
fifth point of the night early in the 
first half.

by jumping out to an 11-5 lead on 
Piper's first five points and two 
jumbers from Wayne Waggoner.

their first eight points to keep them 
in the game early. 

The Tigers then battled back to 
forge ahead at halftime 34-32.

for the Demons with 14 points. 

NSU point guard Melvin 
Youngblood scored four quick 
points early in the second half to put 
the Demons in front 40-38 but 
Grambling then went on a 10-2 tear 
to take the lead for good. 

Grambling went up by 1 1 and 60- 
49 but a sticky defense and some 
quick baskets by Piper and Jim 
Hoops put the Demons back in the 
game and a jumper by Waggoner 
made it 62-58 GSU with three 
minutes to go. 

From there the Demons had a 
couple of chances to tie the score 
but unsuccessful free throws spelled 
doom for the Demon squad.

Demons was Waggoner with 19 
points followed by Piper with 12 
and Youngblood with 10 points.

Also reaching a milestone was 
Demon head coach Wayne Yates 
who recorded his 100th career win 
as a college coach. x 

The game stayed close for the first 
10 minutes as the Demons and 
Vikings traded baskets. Then Piper 
scored 12 of his 20 first half points 
to lead the Demons on to a 26-12 
tear and open up a 50-36 first half 


Piper started off the second half 
in the same manner as he started off

Thornton was known in his college days, realizes that he 
can't play football forever. When his playing days are 
over, he'll have some thing to fall back on. 

That says a lot for those who worked with Sidney and 
coached Sidney. It is good to know that the word 
"student-athlete" does exist, and that there are people 
here to influence young athletes the right way. 

Waggoner From The Corner 

Northwestern's Wayne Waggoner show the form it takes to be 
among the league leaders in scoring as he puts one in from the 
outside during the Demons game against Hardin-Simmons

five rebounds and five assists to rank first of second in each

Gimme Shelter 

As the rains came to Natchitoches last week, it 
caught many students unaware. Here, three 
students scurry for cover from the monsoons 
that hit the campus. Weathermen are 
predicting more rain for the area. It will really 

be needed so the area can recover from the 
drought that has plagued us. The fuzziness of 
the picture comes from the heavy rains that the 
students were running from. 

Cross Concert Set Tomorro w: 
McClendon Heads Committee 

With a new chairman to steer the 
way, the Concert Committee met 
Feb. 5 to finalize plans for the 
Christopher Cross concert, which 
will be performed Feb. 1 1 . 

The committee is now headed by 
Burton "Augie" McLendon, who 
was elected to the position of 2nd 
Vice President, and consequently 
Concert Committee Chairman, at 
the SUGB meeting of Feb. 3. 

The committee discussed work 
assignments and security for the 
concert. University Police and Civil 
Defense will patrol the corridors, 
which will make things easier for 
committee members. 

Tickets up to the time of the 
meeting were selling well; 200 
people had bought tickets. Con- 
sidering that NSU full-time students 
get in free with their ID cards, a 
good attendance is expected. 

The warm-up act for Cross will be 
Jack Tempchin, a singer- 

Cross will be coming to NSU for 
$16,000. This price includes the 
agent's fees, Cross' fees, and the 
cost of the opening act. The 
company producing the concert 
will receive the first $5500 of the 
ticket sales. This goes for an ad- 
ditional generator for the sound and 
lighting, and for staging. 

Ticket prices are $6 in advance 
and $8 at the door. The $6 tickets go 
off sale at 4:30 p.m. the day of the 
concert and then go on sale for the 
higher price at the door. 

The committee also decided to

better acts, the Concert Committee

SUGB Overestimates 
This Semester's Budget 

Kevin Greene 
Sauce Reporter 

"We had a fire in here not too 
long ago, and I had to grab three 
fire extinguishers before I found one 
that worked." Those are the words 
of a confidential employze of 
Iberville Dining Hall. 

In a follow-up investigation by 
this paper to the possible fire code 
violations that are present in the 
Student Union, it was discovered 
that fire extinguishers in the 
Iberville Dining Hall kitchen have 
not been dated within the past two 
years or have been improperly 

The source, who remains con- 
fidential for fear of losing a job, 
states that in the past year 
representatives from the State Fire 
Marshall's office have twice in- 
structed that the extinguishers be 

"I called Student Services and 
Cecil Knotts (former director of 
Student Services) told me that the 
extinguishers would be serviced 
when all the others on campus 
were." That was, according to the 
source "six or seven months ago". 

Of the seven fire extingushers 
present in Iberville, five are last 
dated on June 8, 1978, and one is 
dated as far back as April 22, 1975. 
The last, an automatic extinguisher 
placed above the stoves, is up to 
date, but a meter reading revealed 
that it had been overcharged, the 
needle pointing in the red. 

When questioned about the 
problem in Iberville, Sam Smith 
new Director of Student Services 
stated that, "I have no looked at 
that, and there again Mike Bales 
(Director of Food Services) had not 
brought that to my attention. I will 
check that." 

A thorough check of Kyser Hall 
revealed that of the 32 hooks in- 
stalled to hang fire extinguishers, 
only 23 of the hooks are occupied. 
Nine of the cans are missing, but of 
the ones that are there, each is up to

Those were the words of Mary 
Beth Nicholle, treasurer of the 
Student Union Governing Board. It 
was announced Tuesday, Feb. 3, in 
the weekly SUGB had overestimated 
incoming funds for the Spring by 

"We overestimated the studet 
population is all we did, basically," 
said President of the SUGB, Ron 
Thomas. He stated that the usual 
spring spring drop in student 
population was accounted for, says 
Thomas, but, "it dropped more 
than was anticipated." 

Thomas explained that there are 
several ways in which to combat the 
present situation, saying that the 
most logical way would be to, "go 
back and cut each budget by "x" 

move the magic act, Amazing amount of dollars, in order to pull 
Jonathan, to 12 noon on Feb. 25. It us back under that limit."

Lastly, Gary Fields, a second 
semester junior, and Beverly Arm- 
strong, a second semester 
sophomore, both were elected by 
the Board to fill the empty 
Representative-at-Large seats. 

Jack Welch, Cinemafocus 
Committee Chairman, announced 
that the movie for this week would 
be Hero-at-Large, and would be 
shown Feb. 11 and 13. 

Hospitality Committee Chair- 
man, Alicia Royer reminded the 
Board that a Carnation Sale would 
be held in the Student Union Feb. 
10-11. Carnations will sell for 80 c 
and will be colored red, pink 
peppermint, and yellow.

source, from Housing, all the ex- 
tinguishers in that building were 
gathered up and put into a storage 
closet to be checked last semester. 
The source states that they were 
never checked though, and were 
not checked until Feb. 4, 1981, one 
day after the Sauce revealed the 
possible fire code violations in the 

According to Smith, the ex- 
tinguishers were to have been 
checked anyway. Smith states, 
"That was one of the first things 
that I assigned my graduate 
assistant to when I walked in the 
door. He has been working 
diligently since the ninth or tenth of 
December." Smith continued to say 
that he had assign ed his grad 
assistant to do a survey of every 
extinguisher on campus. 

Smith went on to say, "It was 
interesting that the Current Sauce 
came out on Tuesday. My graduate 
assistant and the young man who 
represents the University for 
recharging all the fire extinguishers, 
were out in the residence halls 
measuring and tagging and doing all 
of that." "I'm not trying to say that 
we are a step ahead", said Smith, 
"but it's a problem I realize, and 
that that's something that needs to 
be done.' 

Smith went further to add that he 
has insturcted his grad assistant to 
draw up fire excape plans to be put 
at the entrance of stair-wells in the 
residence halls. 

Smith will also go to Maintenance 
to try to find a way to secure the 
extinguishers to the wall, in an 
attempt to prevent their misuse. 
Smith states that, "fire ex- 
tinguishers have a way of making 
(it) out of the residence halls", and, 
"they make very good tools to spray 
one another with." 

Smith stated that fire extinguisher 
control is an ongoing problem that 
he has to face and that distribution 
of the extinguishers and just where 
they will be placed will also be a 
problem, saying, "I don't know 
exactly yt how we'll go about it (the 
distribution of the fire ex- 
tinguishers) or where we'll put

Brooks Sings The Blues 

Sandi Therrell 
Sauce News Editor 

With drums emblazoned 
"Kicking Ass," the Lonnie Brooks 
Blues Band proceeded to do just 
that at the SUGB-sponsored mini- 
concert held Feb. 3 in the Student 
Union Ballroom. Featured along 
with the band was Larry Mangum, 
singer-guitarist from Jacksonville, 

Both acts played to a gathering of 
less that 100 people, and thought the 
attendance was disappointing, the 
concert was not. Mangum has a 
style that is simple but effective, 
combining guitar harmonies with 
piano back-up provided by David 

Though the crowd was small, 
Mangum's rule of thumb about 
performing was that he would do so 
"for one woman or two men," and 
he proceeded to charm the audience 
with songs like "In Like (Errol) 
Flynn," which he described as a 
song of perversion, "Breakfast at 
McDonald's (Lunch at Burger 
King)," "Saga of the Page One 
Music Hall," "Southland," and 
"Lonnie the Loser and Easy 
Mary," the title song from his 
album. Mangum said that "some of 
the worst beatings you can take are 
of the heart," and launched into the 
sad tale of lost love "I Finally 
Learned," He described "Lion's 
Den Blues" as a song of temptation. 
Mangum ended his act with "Ain't 
It Great To Be Alive and Be In 

In an interview with Mangum, he 
answered questions relating to his 

Q: Can you name a single persn 
or artist who has had the most 
influence on your music? 

A: "It would probably be John 

Prine. He's an "underground" 
artist, that is, not well known, but I 
think he's real good." 

Q: You've played mostly in the 
South. Is there any reason for this? 
Is there any particular place you'd 
like to play? 

A: "This is new for me to play in 
the South-Central region of the 
United States. I have no great 
vision of going national, but I'm 
slowly but surely getting there." 

Alter his set, Mangum sat in the 
audience and enjoyed the Brooks 
act. He commented that he had 
played at the Mainstage Showcase in 
Tulsa and that Brooks had also 
performed there at the same time. 
He said he admired Brooks very 
much as a performer then and now. 

After a ten-minute intermission 
period in which the Lonnie Brooks 
Blues Band tuned up for a sound 
check, they broke into a fast paced 
number designated to prepare the 
crowd for an evening of blues. 

Brooks band consisted of Harlan 
Terson on bass, Ken Sajdak on 
keyboards, Merle Perkins on 
drums, and Bob Levis on guitar. 
The band had the stage to them- 
selves for the first two numbers, and 
warmed up the crowd admirably. 

Brooks then stepped on stage and 
launched into a favorite among 
blues enthusiasts, "Sweet Home 
Chicago," which gave indication 
that the Chicago blues had come to 

Brooks also submitted to an 
interview, and answered the 
following questions. 

Q: Do you ever get tired of being 
on the road? 

A: "We travel a lot and we do a 
lot of one night stands. Once we 
played 30 colleges in a row in just a 
few weeks time. It's tiring, but I

your favorite? 

A: "It would have to be Bayou 
Lightning. It really made things 
happen for me. But if "Turn On 
the Night" (his recent album) does 
petty well, it might become my 
favorite, too!" 

Q. Did you do anything differend 
on "Turn On the Night"? 

A: "We put more time into this 
album, and used a horn section, 
which we had never tried before. 
We didn't even really know how 
that would turn out, because at the 
time the horns were beng dubbed in, 
we were on tour. But as it turned 
out, it sounds pretty good. ' ' 

Q: How much of the material on 
the album is yours? 

A: "I wrote seven out of the 10 
songs on the album." 

Q: What sort of music or artists 
do you listen to on your own time? 

A: "I listen to rock 'n' roll, jazz, 
the blues, of course. I listen to artist 
like Bobby Blue Bland, B.B. King, 
Muddy Waters, all the great blues 

Q: How do you think the 
audience reacted to you? 

A: "They seemed to enjoy my 
music. I like that." 

Brooks twenty years of experience 
in performing made him a true 
showman and though the intimacy 
of such a small audience seemed out 
of place with his clear, surging 
sound, nevertheless the people who 
were present at the concert most 
certainly appeared to have enjoy 

His last words onstage were "see 
you next time." and it is hoped 
"next time" will be very soon.

how to protect textbooks from 
theft. Books should be marked with 
some type of identification on the 
side of the pages. "No marking on a

Journalism Student 

Bill Leonard, president of CBS 
News, lectured on being "In The 
Midst of Television News, 1981" 
Monday, Feb. 2 at 11 a.m. in the 
Prather Coliseum. 

Leonard began his lecture by 
speaking on the reporters for CBS 
News, Walter Cronkite, Dan 
Rather, and Charles Kuralt, and by 
emphasizing on what it takes to be a 
good journalist. Leonard stated, 
"Walter (Walter Cronkite) is unlike 
most celebrities because he is a 
better guy off the screen than on." 
He also gave Cronkite's reason for 
leaving The CBS Evening News 
which was simply that Cronkite felt 
like the time had come. Leonard 
added that, "Dan Rather will be 
replacing Walter on the CBS 
Evening News starting Monday, 
March 9." 

Leonard attributed Rather's good 
journalism techniques to the fact 
that, "Dan Rather seeks out the 
kind of trouble a reporter must find 
himself in..." He also mentioned 
Charles Kuralt by describing his 
personality as, "...the kind of 
person that gets joy out of little 

Leonard explained the effect the 
releasing of the hostages had on 
American in a time when we were 
changing administrations by saying, 
"...when we were fulfilled with a 
common hope that those people did 
get home... the well spring of 
fundamental Americanism came 
accumulatively appropriate, at a 
time when the passage of one ad-

Phi Mu 

Phi Mu has been very busy since 
the beginning of this Spring 
semester. In January the new of- 
ficers were installed and they are: 
Missy Toups, Recording Secretary; 
Juli Fleming, Vice President; 
Brenda Collins, President; Madeline 
Dranguet, Rush Director; Sheila 
Stewart, Parliamentarian; Sheri 
Evans, Treasurer; Cindy Duke, Phi 
Director; Amy Nell Padget, 
Panhellenic Delegate; and Beth 
Taylor, Corresponding Secretary. 

Phi Mu is proud to announce 
their two new Spring pledges, Janice 
Hardy and Kim Crawford. 

Everyone please be sure to 
sponsor a Phi Mu this month in 
their Rock-A — Thon to be held in 
the Student Union on February 1 3th 
from 12:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. The 
girls will try to rock for as long as 

ministration to another took 
place... All of us felt that we were 
Americans in the very finest sense of 
the word." 

He concluded his speech by 
briefing the audience on the 
capabilities of the new technology 
and by expressing his appreciation 
of the new technology." Leonard 
said, "We embrace the new 
technology. ..most of us at the 
networks not only welcome new 
technology but, have been in the 
forefront of new technology for 30 
or 40 years." He explained the 
capabilities of the new technology 
by saying, "The new technology is 
going to change your viewing in 10 

to 15 years from now.. .the 
television set will be a display case 
for not just news and entertainment, 
but for all kinds of information. It 
will be able to answer math 
problems, play games, tell you 
about the stock market, or even tell 
you how much money you have in 
the bank!" 

Leonard accounted for the effect 
this will have on television news in 
stating, "my guess is that news 
organizations that have the 
resources to supply the finest ob- 
jective opinions will continue to be 
the selection you choose for 
news... news might turn out to be a 
twenty-four program."

Barnes Interviews SGA Pres. 

By Alan Barnes 
Journalism Student 

"I felt my heart strangely war- 
med," quoted the Northwestern 
State University Student Govern- 
ment Association President Fricay, 
Jan. 30 in an interview taken in the 
comfortable atmosphere of a 
journalism class. 

Cliff Lopez added to the quote by 
John Wesley (Methodist Foun- 
dation Founder), that his change in 
religious views has gained him 
confidence and strength in his 
decision making office position. 
Mr. Lopez paralleled his office to 
that of the president of the United 
States. The image is the same in that 
he has the final say-so authority and 
people do not see him as someone 
who makes mistakes. 

Mr. Lopez said the problem that 
he deals with most is in dealing with 
people who want to be the leader. It 
is like the "all chiefs and no in- 
dians" theory he said. 

Can Cliff Lopez be a follower 
after his term in office is over? 

"Yes," commented the president. 
As a matter of fact, other than the 
Presidential Leadership 
Association, Cliff is a follower in 

such organizations as the Kappa 
Sigma Fraternity, Blue Key, the 
Fellowship of Christian Students 
and Chi ALpha. 

"Two roads diverged into a 
wood, and 1 took the one less 
traveled by and that has made the 
difference," Robert Frodst being 
quoted from by Cliff Lopez. 

Before Cliff felt his "heart 
strangely warmed," he was a typical 
young student who would go out 
and enjoy another kind of 
fellowship persued by most young 
americans of today; a carnal world. 
One day, that all came to a hault. 

INstead of escaping into the 
world of carnal knowledge, Cliff 
Lopez escapes into a fellowship of 
christian students; however, he does 
not alienate himself from the world 
as a whole. Cliff enjoys the serene 
world of running. Sunset and 
serenity is better than waking up 
with a hangover, commented Cliff, 
in a round-about way. 

Cliff graduated from Hunnington 
High School in Shreveport, La. in 
1978. He was active in that school's 
Student Council as a Sophmore and 
Junior Class Senator, Treasurer of 
the Senior Class and Senior Class

50% of Michelob fans 

pull the switch 
for today's Schlitz 

48°/o of 200 loyal 
Budweiser drinkers 
also prefer Schlitz 

Schlitz' impressive showing 
against Michelob wasn't the 
first time loyal beer drinkers 
picked Schlitz over their brand. 
Results were similar in earlier 
tests against number one sell- 
ing Budweiser. 

In a live TV taste test con- 
ducted just before the second 
half of the Oakland/Houston 
playoff game, 46 out of 100 
loyal Bud drinkers preferred 
Schlitz over their own beer. A 
week later, 100 more Bud 
drinkers were tested. This time 
50%— exactly half —pulled the 
switch for Schlitz. 

All in all, 48% of the loyal 
Bud drinkers tested liked 
Schlitz better. Prior to the test, 
the panelists had signed affida- 
vits affirming that Budweiser 
was their beer. Most of them 
seemed confident that Bud 
would be their choice in the 
test. At least 48% left with a 
new outlook— and some, per- 
haps, with a new beer. 

"I was confident" 
states Schlitz Chief 
Frank Sellinger 

The results of the taste 
tests were not unexpected for 
Schlitz Chief Executive, Frank 

"Some people thought it was 
risky to do live TV taste tests 
in front of millions of people',' 
says Sellinger, "but it didn't take 
nerve, it just took confidence'.' 

Sellinger, a master brewer 
for 40 years, has helped brew 
some of the world's finest beers. 
Since joining the company 
three years ago, he has con- 
centrated on making Schlitz 
the best premium beer on the 

"They brought me here to 
brew the best',' says Sellinger. 
"And this Schlitz is it!' 

It seems quite a few of the 
Bud, Miller and Michelob 
drinkers tested agree. 

// was Schlitz vs. Michelob Beer — and former 
score for Schlitz in the live TV taste test. 

NFL Referee Tommy Bell called the 

50 out of 100 Michelob 
drinkers pick Schlitz 
on live Super Bowl TV 

100 million fans watched as 
Schlitz took on Michelob in the 
finale of "The Great American 
Beer Switch!' The dramatic test 
was conducted live during half- 
time of the Super Bowl game. 

The huge audience wit- 
nessed 100 loyal Michelob 
drinkers choose between two 
unlabelled beers — their own 
Michelob and today's Schlitz. 
The outcome proved a surprise 
to many Michelob drinkers wh< > 
found themselves preferring 
the taste of Schlitz over the 
taste of Michelob. 

Each of the 100 loyal 
Michelob drinkers was served 
two beers, one Schlitz and one 
Michelob, in unlabelled ceram- 
ic mugs. Tasters were told to 
indicate a tie, or make a choice 
by pulling an electronic switch 
left or right in the direction of 
the beer they preferred. To in- 
sure fairness, the testing was 
conducted by a leading inde- 
pendent consumer research 
firm. The results were vali- 
dated by another top statistical 
research company, Elrick and 
Lavidge, Inc. 

Before the test, the Michelob 
drinkers probably thought they 
would pick their own brand. A 
lot of them seemed surprised 
as they watched the number 
of Michelob drinkers who pre- 
ferred Schlitz flash up for na- 
tional TV. 

200 Miller drinkers 
tested: Schlitz is 
preferred by 37% 

In the weeks following the 
impressive showing against 
#1 Budweiser, Schlitz went 
head to head against another 
leading beer— Miller. 

In two taste tests appearing 
on live television, a total of 200 
loyal Miller drinkers were 
asked to choose between their 
beer and Schlitz. Again, a sig- 
nificant number of Miller 
drinkers decided their beer 
was second best and pulled the 
switch for Schlitz. 

Beer fans surprised at choice of Schlitz 

Panelists who decided their 
beer was second best and chose 
Schlitz expressed surprise. 
Similar reactions have been 
registered in other taste tests 
across the country. 

"I honestly selected the beer 
I preferred and it wasn't Miller," 
admitted Miller drinker, Albert 

"I'm genuinely surprised',' 
exclaimed Guy D'Anne, "I 
thought Bud was better but I've 
been proved wrong'.' "Schlitz 
has much better flavor than 
Miller, and it goes down easier," 

attested Bill Weber, "I could 
drink it all night'.' 

Panelist Bernie Felsbit 
summed up the reaction of 

many of the Bud, Miller and 
Michelob drinkers when he 
said, "There may be a new 
beer in my future'.' 

Do it yourself-try the "Great 
American Beer Switch" test 

This test requires two iden- made on taste alone, serve the 

heal mugs, a Schlitz and your beer in non-transparent mugs 

regular beer, at equal tempera- or have the taster close his eyes 

ture. Label the mugs "1" and Now let the taster sample both 

'2" so the taster won't know 
which beer is which. Pour the 
beers to equal heads out of the 
taster's sight. 

To ensure that the choice is 

of the beers and choose the one 
that tastes better. Now you 
taste both beers yourself. Did 
you pick your regular brand? 
Or today's Schlitz? 

Loyal Michelob drinkers chose between unlabelled mugs 
of their Michelob and today's Schlitz.

Quotations From 

Editor La Vere 

Let Garwood Go 

In what could possibly if not the final chapter, certainly one of the closing 
ones, Pfc Robert Garwood, an ex-Prisoner of War who spent 14 years in 
Vietnam, has been convicted on a charge of collaboration with the enemy. 

Garwood's lawyers did not dispute the collaboration charges, but they 
did charge that Garwood was driven insane while he was a prisoner of war 
and in fact turned him into a "white Vietnamese." 

Garwood was a 19-year-old jeep driver when he was captured near Da 
Nang back in 1965 and he spent 14 years in Vietnam until he voluntarily 
returned to the United States. 

As a former Marine myself who had many friends that served in Vietnam 
and several that were POW's, I really belive that the government should just 
let Pfc Garwood go home. Fourteen years in Vietnam is a long time. If it got 
bad enough that he had to get out, then he must have served more than 
enough time already. 

When the POW's came home years ago, there was a question abo trials 
for collaboration for some of them. None were held until Garwood came 

Collaboration is the key word. But after several weeks of torture, it could 
become very easy to collaborate. If Garwoo was captured in 1965 and the 
war didn't end until 1972, that is seven years in which to be tortured into 
collaboration. Seven years of torture. Damn, that is a long time. 

Garwood was also convicted of hitting a fellow POW in the ribs with the 
back of his hand. It would take a lot of will-power not to get into some type 
of argument with someone over the course of seven years. 

Garwood's life is ruined. He will forever be branded as a collaborator. 
He is 34-years-old and harmless. By convicting him and sending him to 
prison will not serve as a det errant to the next batch of POW's. Torture and 
collaboration is something a person faces alone. A person will collaborate 
when torture makes him reach his breaking point. 

The war is over. The POW's are back. The soldiers are home, many dying 
from the government's use of Agent Orange But the government and the 
military must play out the scene to the end. And so Pfc Garwood has gone 
on trial and faces prison. Just let the man go home and attempt to forget the 
past 14 years. 

Welcome Home Pfc. Robert Garwood. We've been waiting for you. 

Great Concert 

There was definitely something to do at Northwestern last Tuesday 
evening. And only about 35 people at the max took advantage of it. (Of 
course, probably not many people knew it was happening.) Im'm talking 
about the Lonnie Brooks concert that was held in the Student Union 

In my opinion, those who missed this performance missed what could 
possibly be the best concert given at Northwestern in recent years. Even 
surpassing the Christmas Light's concerts for the past few years. 

Brooks and his band are from Chicago and they are Blue's singers. And 
they definitely know how to sing the Blues. Besides being good, they are 
professionals. They came out and appeared to give the crowd of 35 all they 
had. It didn't seem to matter whether they were playing for 35 or 35,000. 
Thats professionalism and the crowd responded splendidly. There was a 
whole lot of clapping, stomping, and yelling going on. At the end of the 
hour and half long show, crowd gave Brooks and his band a standing 
ovation. It was more than well-deserved. 

Now I would like to do something that the students probably haven't 
seem me do too much, and that is compliment the Concert Committee and 
the SUGB for putting on the show. I think they did a damn good job. I'm 
glad Bill Corry could get Brooks and I really admired the way the members 
of the Concert Committee and the SUGB turned out to put on the concert. 
They stayed late and appeared to work their butts off. That also is 

It appears that the SUGB is making some interesting innovations on 
campus. The new TV and Stereo Lounge, better known a The Addition, is a 
tremendous idea. Already it seems to be goin over extremely well. And can 
you believe it, they actually show "Reefer Madness" down there the other 
day. Just what is NSU coming to? Better days, hopefully. 

Jack Welch has been doing some strange things with the movies on 
campus. Last week it was The Night of the Living Dead. It played to a 
packed house. The Worst Movies Festival went the week before and it 
seemed to go over big. 

Augie McClendon is the new head of the Concert Committee. He did a 
lot of work with the Brooks concert. Keep it up. Hopefully, as Spring 
arrives, we might possibly see some outdoor concerts. (That's a hint, 

Well, enough rambling, I really just wanted to say that ya'll missed a 
good concert if you didn't go and say that the Concert Committee and the 
SUGB did themselves proud.

Radical Rag 

Rag Speaks On Extinguishers 

Editor's Note: I am constantly 
being asked who the Radical Rag is. 
To clear this up once and for all - I 
don't know. At least I don't know 
for sure. A little over a year ago we 
began receiving these strange radical 
things. They were slipp under the 
door every Friday morning. After 
months of investigati , the only 
thing we can figure out is that it 
must be some old drugged-out ghost 
living in Caldwell Hall. It appears 
that som unidentified freshman died 
there while looking for his advisor. 
His ghost now wanders through the 
bowels of the building with a 
penchant for writing strange 
columns and commenting upon 
strange happenings. And now I 
bring you one more episode in the 
Strang and terrible saga of the 
Radical Rag. 

Well, well, well, what do we have 
here? It seems that the ad- 
ministration put off refilling and 
replacing those old fire ex- 
tinguishers a bit toooo long. And, I 
see, David La Vere has once again 
thrown himself to the wolves! 

By now you've probably heard of 
the possible fire code violations in 
the Student Union, Keyser Hall, 
Rapides Dormitory, and Iberville 
Hall. I'll tell you what, that's cuttin' 
it pretty close when an employee of 
Iberville has to try three times to 
fight a fire with bad extinguihers. 

They ought to give him a citation 
instead of a fine. I thought it was a 
perfectly wonderfully thought out 
system. One buzz for this janitor, 
two buzzes for that janitor, three 
buzzes for the entire janitorial staff. 

I wonder how many buzzes meant 
that the building was burning down. 
Well nobody's perfect... 

I was wandering around Caldwell 
Hall around midnight the other 
night when a truly amazing thought 
came over me. I was amazed a well 
as stunned at my own brilliance. I 
thought, "Look, the state fire

overrule the SGA from being set." Debbie Vela seconded 
the motion. After much discussion it was recommended that 
the resolution be amended. Joe Stamey moved to amend the 
resolution to read, "THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that 
the NSU Student Government Association appropriate 
"emergency" funds to setid David Martin and another SGA 
representative to Northeast Louisiana University to give our 
SGA a report on the issue at the Monroe campus." Woody 
Woodruff seconded the motion. Moton nassed. 


Cliff Lopez announced that KNWD will no longer be 
broadcasting the SGA meetings. Cliff also announced that 
there will be a Broadcast committee meeting at 2 p.m. on 
Wednesday Feb. 4. 

Russell Williams moved to adjourn. Harlan Harvey 
seconded the motion. Motion passes. The meeting formally 
adjourned at 7:10 p.m.

marshall's office has been pretty 
nice about this whole shinanigan. 
Why not, just for the sake of 
humoring the office uptown, fill 
some of the fire extinguishers, only 
use the Student Union fire alarm for 
the summoning the custodians, sya, 
only three times a day, and get at 
least one small, workable fire ex- 
tinguisher for Iberville Hall?" 

Isn't that brilliant? It would solve 

all our problems. If would get the 
Fire Marshall's office, as well as 
that lovable, bearded David La Vere 
off our backs. 

Not only that, but it would keep 
the bad news away from potential 
students who might shy away, for 
fear of being burned to death. I 
meand, even though it is a silly idea, 
(burning to death can't bee all that 
bad, lots of people do it in New 
York) it's worth a try. HUH 

Sure La Vere raised some hell 
with his stories, but LORDY what a 
fuss the state would make if the 
Student Union were to burn with 
about 120 students along with it. 

Oh well, I guess that I must leave 
you to your thoughts, how primitive 
they must be though, for someone is 
coming and I must keep out of 
harms way. See you next week.

Dear Editor: 

I am writing concerning the 
article printed in the Current Sauce 
on Feb. 3, about the $10,000 
misplaced during registration. The 
article stated that $10,000 was 
missing unnoticed for a period of 
several days. The total in- 
competence that led up to such a 
fiasco, does not upset me as much as 
the attempt of shifting the blame 
and syigma of stupidity to an in- 
nocent Northwestern employee. 
Nowhere in the report is there any 
mention of an investigation of the 
person or persons who signed of the 

The employee named was a Mr. 
Robert LaCaze. He stated that "...I 
gave it to them when they came 
looking for it." According to the 
article, that was Monday morning, 
five days following registration. It 
took five days for our ad- 

ministration to notice the missing 
$10,000. I am relieved to know that 
Northwestern's. finances are sound 
enough to allow for such a loss with 
no ill effects. 

The question upppermost in my 
mind is why the hierarchy of this 
college feels disposed to investigate 
a maintenance man who had no 
connection wth the issuing or 
delivering of such money. What 
was Mrs. LaCaze's reward for 
returning the "extra reserve sack?" 

The reward: a one week 
suspension without pay and a snide 
implication of guilt by the head of 
the college. I feel that this in- 
stitution owes Mr. LaCaze an 
apology and a debt of gratitude. 

The whole response of the ad- 
ministration is typical of a large 
organization caught in its own 
mistakes, trying to cover it up by 
implicating a single individual 
unaware and not associated with the 
actions of those really responsible.

Dear David: 

Just a brief note of thanks for the 
very positive and informative article 
in the Current Sauce concerning the 
one-room schoolhouse. 

I am sure that we can expect some 
aid and interest from the com- 
munity in our restorative venture 
due to the exposure your very 
thorough article delivered. 

We soon hope to Degin worK 
reconstructing the mud chimney 
which might be a process you would 
find of interest. I will giv you a call 
when work is ready to begin.

Lady Demons Up Win Streak to Six 
before Falling to Lady Techsters 


Demon guard Wayne Waggoner goes up for two in the 
Demons' recent rout of Portland State in Prather Coliseum. 
Waggoner picked up 18 points in the 92-69 win. The junior 
transfer has lived up to his reputation thus far this season as he 
leads the squad in four statistical categories and is second in 
two others.

A Look at Demon Stats 

Wayne Waggoner and Fred Piper 
have done super jobs for the 
improved Northwestern Demons 
through the first 19 games and the 
evidence is in the stats. The duo 
combined lead the team in all but 
three statistical categories. 

Waggoner, a junior guard from 
Logansport, leads the squad in 
scoringandfree throw percentage, as 
well as in total points and steals. 

The 6-2 wing man is tops for the 
Demons with a 15.9 point-pe r-game 
average, while hitting an even 50 
percent from the field by making 
133 of 266 efforts. Waggoner is 
also dependable from the free throw 
line, tossing in 80.4 percent from the 
stripe by hitting 37 of 46 tries. Wag 
leads the squad with 303 tallies on 
the year, also. 

Waggoner is locked in a three- 
way deadlock for the lead in the 
steals department with 20 thefts. 
Harry Francis and Ray Baggett also 
have a score of pickoffs each. 

Piper leads the team in 
rebounding and rebounding 
average, despite playing in just 16 of 
the Demons 19 games. The senior 
center has cleared the boards 132 
times on the year for an 8.3 per 
game clip. 

The big 6-9 Peabody grad also 
paces the team in field goal per- 
centge, burning the nets on 55.4 
percent of his shots. Piper has been 
good on 103 of 186 tries from the 

Piper is second in three other 
departments. He follows Waggoner 
in scoring with 246 points and 15.4 
points a game. He follows Melvin 
Youngblood in turnovers with 65 
miscues to 71 for the freshman 
guard, and trails Earnest Reliford's 
14 blocked shots with nine rejec- 

Baggett, beside leading the team 
in steals, follows Waggoner with a 
75.9 percent average from the 
charity stripe by making good on 22 
of 29 chances from the line. 

Youngblood is tops on the team 
in assists with 64 helps. Waggoner is 
second with 40 aids. 

Jim Hoops gets his name into the 
stas with 112 rebounds, good 
enough for second on the team. 
Hoops clears the boards 5.9 times a 


The Demons are now 7-12 on the 
year and 3-5 in the TAAC. Nor- 
thwestern holds a 5-4 record in 
Prather Coliseum and a 2-8 mark on 
hthe road. The five wins at home 
have come in NSU's last five home 
dates and that streak will be on the 
line Thursday night as Centenary 
comes to town. The game will be the 
second half of a men's-women's 
double header on "Back Prather 

Northwestern 's Lady Demons 
extended their win streak to six 
games with an 86-63 thrashing of 
Texas- Arlington Friday night before 
having the streak halted on 
Saturday by the over-powering 
Louisiana Tech Lady Techsters 1 1 5- 
67 in Ruston Saturday evening. 

After playing back-and-forth ball 
with UTA for the first seven 
minutes of the opening half, the 
Lady Demons exploded out to a 15- 
point lead by halftime. Nor- 
thwestern outscored the visiting 
Lady Mavs 29-16 over the final 13 
minutes of the half. 

Northwestern moved out to the 
big early lead despite hitting a 
dismal 27.3 percent from the free 
throw line in the half. 

The NSU squad continued to 
dominate the vistors and by the 
13:10 mark of the closing half ahad 
moved the lead out to 29 points. 

Pat Pierson, Lady Demon head 
coach, was able to substitute freely 
in the half as 10 Northwestern 
women saw action in the contest. 

Pierson was satisfied with her 
team's performance in the UTA 
win, which upped the Northwestern 
record to 14-7. "We did a real good 
job against UTA. I was really 
pleased with the offense because we 
were handling the ball really well." 
The Lady Demons turned the ball 
over just 13 times in the outing. 

Tracy Taylor led the way for the 
home team with 18 points, nine of 
which came in the big first half rush. 
Taylor also hauled down 10 
rebounds in the game. 

Stephany Washington followed 
Taylor with 16 points in just over 
one half of play. 

Marilyn Gates, Sharon Brown 
and Joan Darbonne also hit in 
double-digits for the Lady Demons, 
contributing 14 tallies each. Gates 
led the squad in rebounding with 12 
recoveries, while Darbonne added 
five assists. 

Linda Jones and Kim Paulk led 
the squad in the assist department 
with seven and six, respectively. 

Julie Coleman was tops for the 
Lady Mavericks with 14 points and 
seven rebounds, along with five 

Teammate Carolyn Smith was 
right behind with 12 markers, six 
rebounds, and five helps. 

NSU's ladies dropped their first 
game in the last seven outings on 
Saturday night's journey into Lady 
Techster Land. 

The top-ranked La. Tech squad 
improved its undefeated record to 
21-0 with the 48-point victory and

of 4,450 looked on as the Techsters

member of the public has been injured by the 
operation of a nuclear power plant. An unmatched 
safety record.

"They are the best team in the 
nation, without a doubt," Pierson, 
"and I don't see anyway anyone can 
beat them. We hated to lose, but we 
felt we did as well as anybody has

"I think we were intimidated and 
that didn't help," Pierson added. 
"Their fans, their reputation, and 
their gym can really get to you." 

The atmosphere didn't get to one 
Lady Demon as Darbonne turned in 
a brilliant effort, bombing the 
Memorial Gym nets for 30 points 
and leading the squad with five 
rebounds. Twelve of Darbonne's 
points came from the foul line. It 
marked the second time the senior 
has topped the 30-point mark in 
Ruston, zipping in 38 two years ago. 

Stephany Washington was the 
only other Lady Demon in double 
figures, picking up 11 points. Paulk

The Lady Techsters put six

Lori Scott added 16 points and 13 
caroms to the Tech cause while

Demon Roundballers Drop Three In A Row 

Thoughts while thinking what 
thoughts Doug Ireland is thinking 
since he is not thinking his thoughts 
for the SAUCE. 

Northwestern's spring sports are 
almost upon us and the Demons are 
gearing up for their second year in 
the TAAC conference. 

Last year the NSU baseball team 
finished the season with a 23-23 
record, winning 1 1 out out of their 
last 17. 

The Demons are bringing back 
eight out of their 10 top hitters from 
last years team to try to bring a 
TAAC Championship to Stroud 

Among those hitters bringing 
back their wooden sticks is cen- 
terfielder Darrel Toussaint who 
sported a .327 batting average last 
year. Toussaint was also second on 
the Demons team in slugging per- 
centage with a .455 mark. 

World famous acrobat Dougl 
Guelde, (you remember him, he was 
the guy who got caught doing stunts 
on the baseball diamond by a 
photographer and then got his 
picture put on a baseball bestseller) 
is back and will be looking to im- 
prove on his .303 average which was 
third on the team. Guelde was tied 
for second On the Demon team in 
total bases with 45. 

Outfield Steve Graf, another of 
the football players turn 
baseballers, comes off a fine year on 
the gridiron to try to repeat or better 
his last years baseball. 

Out on the anthills, the Demons 

return only two pitchers off last 
year's squad, but those pitchers 
were 6-3 between them. 

One, Jay Lavaspere, was 4-2 with 
a 3.46 earned run average which was 
second on the Demon team. The 
other one, Brent Trimble, was 2-1 
with a 5.85 ERA. 

On the softball diamond, first 
year head coach James Smith will be 
without the services of the top three 
batters and the top pitcher off last 
year's squard. 

Back for this years squad will be 
Jackie Calandro, Karen Briggs, and 
Linda Jones, the 4th-6th batters. 
Also returning will be Cindy 
Wigley, Terri Jenkins, Lynne 
Martin and Helen LeFevre. 

Briggs is the only returning 
pitcher. She was 5-7 last year but 
had an ERA of 3.06. 

The Lady Demons, last years 
Division II State Champtions will 
also be looking for help from seven 
freshmen, one sophomore, and one 
junior who will be in their first year 
for the Lady Demon softball team. 

Smith is optimistic about this 
year's 24 game schedule and the 
large amount of returning players. 
The only question mark at this time 
appears to be the pitching staff. 
With Briggs being the only returning 
pitcher, Smith will be looking to 
freshmen Jaqueitha Vought and 
senior basketballer Linda Jones. 

Watch for the Lady Demons to 
have another good year and as 
Smith so enthusiastically says, "I 
feel like we will repeat as Division II 

Thursday Declared 
"Pack Prather" Night 

Thursday night February 12 has 
been designated as "Pack Prather" 
night at Northwestern State 
University when the Demons host 
defending Trans America Con- 
ference Champion Centenary in 
Prather Coliseum at NSU. 

The Northwestern-Centenary 
game will begin at 8:00 p.m. and 
will be preceeded by the NSU Lady 
Demon final home game of the 
season against Southern University 
of Baton Rouge. The women's 
contest will get underway at 6:00 

Several other events will take 
place during the night as all Demon 
fans are urged to come out and 
support the Demons. Northwestern 
lost to Centenary 72-71 earlier in the 
season in Shreveport. 

Northwestern All-American 
football player Joe Delaney will be 
formally honored for having his 
football jersey retired and there will 
be a special halftime show. There 
will also be 250 miniature 
basketballs and other door prizes 
given away during the evening. 

The Northwestern women, who 
are currently on a five-game win- 
ning streak, will be playing their 
final home game. It will also be the 
final home appearance of seniors 
Joan Darbonne and Linda Jones. 
Darbonne is currently second on the 
all-time Lady Demon scoring list 
and Jones is the career leader in 

The Demons have won five 
straight games in Prather Coliseum 
and Thursday night will be playing 
at home for the first time in 10 days 
after playing three straight road 
games. Centenary is currently 
leading the TAAC again this season. 

Attendance at Northwestern 

basketball games this season has 
been much improved over last year 
and the 1980-81 Demons have 
shown they are exciting to watch. As 
usual the NSU pep band, pom-pom 
squad and cheerleaders will be in 
action for Thursday night's contest. 
The courtside seats made available 
this year have proved to be a big hit 
as they have been packed to capacity 
at all home games. 

The honoring of Delaney will be 
done at halftime. Delaney holds 
almost all of the NSU rushing and 
scoring records as this season he led 
the Demon football team to an 8-3 
record. Delaney has also played in 
two post-season all-star games in 
recent months. 

Centenary and Northwestern 
have had a strong rivalry over the 
years, but this is the first season they 
have both competed in the same 
conference. The Gents hold an 
overall 44-33 advantage in the long- 
time series between the two schools. 

Tickets for "Pack Prather" night 
can be picked up at the NSU 
fieldhouse ticket office during any 
day of the week. Prices are $4. for 
reserved seats and $2 for general 
admission and children. Children 
under school age are admitted free. 

"We appreciate very much the 
support the basketball program has 
received this season," said first year 
Demon Coach Wayne Yates. "We 
think that Thursday night we can 
have a capacity crowd. We are 
looking forward to it and I know the 
players are looking forward to a 
good game against Centenary." 

After Thursday night, the 
Demons will have two home games 
remaining on the schedule, 
February 21 against Samford and 
February 23 against Nicholls State. 


Last week was a busy one for the 
Intramural Department as the 
weightlifting tournament, Hot Shot, 
and Horse competitions were all 

In the weightlifting each lifter 
made three lifts, the squat, bench, 
and deadlift. Their best lifts in each 
division were added together for a 
total to determine the overall 
champion. There were four weight 
divisions for the lifters. 

In the 130-150 weight class Kenny 
Gray (wt. 149) had a three lift total 
of 855 to take the smallest class. 
Douglas Carter (wt. 148) had a total 
of 805. 

The champion of the 150-170 
weight classification was Anthony 
James. He had a three lift total of 
995. James (wt. 170) had a bench 
•lift of 265. Second place in that 
class went to Joey Caleyo (wt. 159) 
who had a three lift total of865. 

James Butler (wt. 189) took the 
170-190 division with a total of 
1320. This included a 500 pound 
deadlift. Second went to Tommy 
Rusing with a 1040 total. 

Two demon football players 
dominated the upper weight class, 
190 and up, as Fred Galloway (wt. 
274) and Charles James (wt. 212) 
took the first and second place 

honors. Fred had a three lift total 
of 1405. CJ had a 1200 pound total. 

Special recognition has to go to 
James Butler who led all lifters in 
total weight lifted divided by your 
own weight. Butler lifted 6.98 
pounds of deadweight for every 
pound of his own. Second place in 
that special category would to go 
Anthony James with 5.85. 

In other Intramural action from 
last week, Shelia Satcher edged 
Sharon Sampite for the cham- 
pionship of the women's Hot Shot. 

In the men's division of Hot Shot 
Troy Mathieu took first place. 
Mike Harbison finished second. 

Betty Ruth Perkins was the 
champion in the women's division 
of H-O-R-S-E. Sharon Sampite 
finished second. 

In the men's division of H-O-R-S- 
E Kevin Warner took the cham- 
pionship with a victory over runner- 
up Kenny Parr. 

In Miller One-on-One action last 
Friday night Cindy Duke defeated 
Liz McCollister 10-8. The finals of 
the tournament will be held at the 
men's game with Nicholls State Feb. 

Registration of Intramural 
Monopoly and Backgammon is 
going on right now. Sign up at the 
Intramural Building. 

Baggett Up For Two 

Ray Baggett (22) goes up for this short jumper for Nor- 
thwestern against Portland St. Demons Harry Francis (14), 
Anthony Robertson (10), and Wayne Waggoner (Demons 
showing) trail on the play. 

NSU 58 Houston Baptist 60 

A last second shot by Nor- 
thwestern just would not fall and 
the Demons went down to their 1 1th 
defeat against seven wins, 60-58, at 
the hands of the Houston Baptist 
University Huskies. 

The Demons did not play a 
particularly bad game, but a rash of 
fouls and a 24 for 31 free throw 
shooting mark clinched it for the 
Huskies as they improved their 
overall record to 13-7 and 6-2 in 
TAAC play. Northwestern dropped 
to 3-4 in TAAC competition. 

The Demons held the lead for 
most of the first half of play in spite 
of seven lead changes, and went into 
the lockeroom at halftime up by 
four points 36-32, thanks largely to 
the first half play of Fred Piper and 
Wayne Waggoner who had 12 and 
10 points each. The Demons shot 
63% from the field in the half and 
80% from the charity line. 

The Demons started the second 
half on a positive note by scoring 
the first two points when Ray 
Baggett hit a jumper from the top of 
the circle. However, the Huskies 
came back to score nine straight 
points and take the lead. The lead 
changed hands five times in the next 
four minutes and two times later in 
the game before HBU pulled out in 
front by five with just 48 seconds 
left. Waggoner and Harry Francis 
each made key baskets but the 
Demons just couldn't pull it out as 
Houston Baptist eaked out the win. 

Waggoner lead the Demons in 
scoring with 24 points which was 
also the high mark for either team. 
Piper, coming off his player of the 
week hit 14 points for the NSU 

Piper also led Northwestern in 
rebounds with four and assists with

NSU 60 Southeastern 71 

Northwestern's Demons dropped 
their 10th game of the year, this one 
by a 71-60 margin to the 
Southeastern University Lions at 

It was a game of fouls for the 
Demons who saw their record fall to 
7-10 with the loss. 

Thirty-two fouls were whistled 
against the Demons compared with 
21 against the Lions. SLU went to 
the foul line 41 times and made 31 
of the charity shots, while the 
Demons went to the line but 16 
times and canned 10 of those shots. 

One bright spot for the Demons 
was the play of Fred Piper. Piper 
tossed in 26 points for the NSU 
squad to claim game honors. Piper 
has now hit for 59 points in his last 
two games to move his career totals 
to 1,066 points and is now just 26 
points away from Johnny Mc- 
Conathy on the NSU all-time 
scoring list. McConathy is 
currently 13th. 

The game started out pretty slow 
as neither team could build a 
decisive edge. At the half way point 
of the first half NSU held a three 

point lead 15-12. That's when the 
roof caved in on the Demons. 
Northwestern was called for 11 
fouls in the next 8:42 of the half. 
During that time NSU head coach 
Wayne Yates was called for a 
technical foul, and the Lions took 
command of the game 37-27 at 

The second half was no better for 
the Demons. Southeastern took a 16 
point lead with 14 minutes to go and 
the Demons could do know better 
than cut that lead to eight points 
with seven and a half minutes to 

For the Demons, Piper was the 
only NSU player to scoge in double 
figures with 26, while Wayne 
Waggoner tossed in eight points. 

Piper also led the Demons in 
rebounds with 12, and Melvin 
Youngblood handed out four assists 
while Jim Hoops was responsible 
for three steals. 

The Demons next game is 
Thursday night at Houston Baptist, 
and their next home game is against 
the Centenary Gents, minus 
Cherokee Rhone, February 12th. 

NSU 67 Northeast 79 

Northwestern dropped their third 
straight game, this one a 79-67 
decision to the Northeast University 
Indians, and virtually dispelled all 
hope of winning the Trans America 
Athletic Conference regular season 

The Indians, led by Terry Martin, 
younger brother of Demon redshirt 
Johnny Martin, dominated things 
from the start in defeating NSU for 
the second time this year. 

Northwestern controlled the tip to 
start the game and an Earnest 
Reliford field goal put the Demons 
up 2-0. One minulater Fred Piper 
put the Demons up 4-2 and that was 
the last time that Northwestern 
enjoyed a lead. 

NLU outscored NSU 20-5 over 
the next seven minutes to run their 
lead to 22-9 and coast into the 
lockerroom with a 35-26 lead. 

Northwestern came out of the 
lockerroom ready to play ball in the 
final half when they cut Northeast's 

lead to five at 39-34. 

However just as quickly NLU 
went on an 11-2 tear and blew the 
game away, or so it appeared. 

Northwestern never would give 
up, which has become their 
trademark, cut the Northeast lead to 
three by going on a 13-2 streak, and 
then just as quickly watched that 
lead expand again to 12 by the In- 
dians and the game was over over a 
Pat Gullatt jumper. 
1 For the Demons Wayne 
Waggoner lead them in scoring with 
18 points while Reliford had 17. 
Piper canned 14 and Melvin 
Youngblood added 10 points for the 

Piper had seven rebounds and 
Reliford and Harry Francis had for 
each for Northwestern, and Ray 
Baggett dished out three assists for 
the Demons. 

Northwestern's next game is set 
for thursday night against Cen- 
tenary and it will be designated 
"Pack Prather " night.

SGA Receives 
Library Survey 

February Snowfall 

While it wasn't a blizzard or anything, tem- 
peratures did drop down into the teens last 
week and Northwestern students were greeted 
to a light snowfall. There wasn't enough snow 

to make a snowman or anything, but the the 
white covering of the campus was a welcome 
change from the usual dull winter brown that 
has beset the university. 

SGA Revises Election Codes 

Sandi Therrell 
Sauce News Editor 

In what will possibly prove to be 
the most important bill passed by 
the Student Government 
Association in its 1980-81 term, 
Kevin Bartholomew and his 
Elections Revisions Committee 
submitted amendments to the 
current NSU Election Code. The 
bill, No. 24, was passed at the Jan. 
26 meeting of the SGA. 

In a memo to the Sauce, Bar- 
tholomew commented that the 
amendments "will affect all NSU 
students in one way or the other." 
Committee members included 
Russell Williams, Terri Scott, Jane 
Thomas, and Woody Woodruff. 

The first amendment to the Code 
falls under SGA Sponsored Elec- 
tions, and calls for Article I, Section 
D to be deleted. Section D provides 
for any election necessary for an on- 
campus organization, such as AMS 
or AWS. 

The next amendments add to 
duties and replace one already 
stated under Commissioner of 
Elections, Article II, Section B, 
Subsections 2, 5, 6, 12b, 12c, 12d, 
15, and 18. 

Article II, Section B, Subsection 2 

states "To set the time, date and 
place for all elections." The 
amendment adds to this subsection 
"To work with the NSU Photo Lab 
to arrange and verify the dates for 
pictures of all nominees no later 
than one week after the ballot has 
been established." 

Article II, Section B, Subsection 5 
states "To establish a place, time, 
and day for the clinical campus to 
vote in all SGA sponsored elections. 
The day of voting in Shreveport 
may be the same as on the NSU 
campus proper, the day prior, or the 
day after." The amendment adds to 
this "(a) One set of pictures of all 
nominees and candidates must be 
placed at each polling place on all 

Article II, Section B, Subsection 6 
states "To receive and validate the 
clinical campus votes." The 
amendment adds to this "this 
validation must be both verbal and 
written, (a) Ballot tallied sheets 
must be signed and postmarked to 
be sent to the main campus 
Commissioner of Elections no more 
than 3 days after their polls have 
been closed." 

Article II, Section B, Subsection 
12 states "To provide publicity for 
every election in the manner to be 

decided by the Elections Board, (a) 
A sample ballot should be printed in 
the Current Sauce for all general 
elections (run-offs need not be 
printed), (b) Posting of pictures of 
the candidates, if possible, their 
name, and the office they are 
seeking in front of the polling 
place." The amendment adds to this 
" (b) for all senatorial, 
Representative and Cabinet can- 
didates, (c) For all NSU Court 
Elections, only names will be placed 
under each picture in front of the 
polling place, (d) For Mr. and Miss 
NSU, only names and a list of 
honors and accomplishmenst will be 
placed under each picture. Ac- 
complishments and honors will be 
verified and approved by the 
Commissioner of Elections." 

Article II, Section B, Subsection 
15 states "To validate and post 
election results as quickly as 
possible." This statement was 
replaced in the amendments by " 
To validate and post election results 
no more than 24 hours after the 

Article II with the amendments 
has another subsection, Subsection 
18. This states "The Commissioner 
of Elections shall have certain

The SGA meeting Feb. 9 heard, 
among other things, a detailed 
findings report on a library survey 
conducted last semester by Larry 
Hall, Senator. at-Large. Hall 
completed survey counting and gave 
the SGA his report. 

Out of 1000 surveys, which were 
located at the library and distributed 
in dorms, 675 students responded. 
From these responses, Hall found 
that most students viewed the 
library as being moderate, meaning 
not too noisy nor too quiet. Stu- 
dents responded that they wanted 
the library to be maintained at a 
very quiet level. 

Two of the main concerns of 
noise in the library were chosen as 
students in groups and students who 
are not studying. Other items 
chosen but not in the majority were 
library machinery, librarians, and 
the public address system. 

The primary time of students 
being in the library proved to be 
evenings. When students were asked 
if they would handle noisy students 
on their own, most said no, because 
they felt that it wasn't their concern, 
it was the responsibility of the 
librarian and his staff. 

When asked about how they 
handled disturbances caused by 
noisy students, students said they 
handled it by speaking to the of- 

Another question dealt with 
having backgroun music in the 

library. It was requested that stereo 
music be played only in certain 
areas of the library, such as only the 
3rd floor or portions of another 

Don McKenzie, Head of the 
library, Hall reported, said that the 
background music machine is 
designed to locate music in specific 
areas of the library, as in the reading 
rooms for students who may 
disagree with the listening in a 
whole area. 

The last question asked for 
student comment. Comments 
ranged from complaints about 
temperature to lack of isolated 
group study rooms to more 
psychological journals to increased 
hours. One favorable comment 
from a student was that the SGA 
was to be complimented on their 
interest in the matter of the library. 

Though perhaps having a library 
monitor would be extreme, the 
survey does show noise to be a 
problem, and any solution will have 
to be experimental until conditions 

Hall ended his report with thanks 
for the students who responded to 
the survey, and commented that 
while he thinks "a monitor would 
solve the problem, the problem is 
concerning or centered around 
students, and it must be assumed 
that it can only be solved by 

Demon Connection Wednesday 

Wednesday, Feb. 18, will be the 
day for high school students from 
throughout the state to visit NSU in 
a program appropriately called 
Demon Connection: Vocational 
Exploration Day. 

Students who come to NSU will 
be primarily juniors and seniors, 
contacted by mail and by posters 
distributed to their high school 
counselors. They are provided with 
entertainment and a closer look at 
the available academic programs, in 
an atmosphere as relaxing as 

Demon Connection has been in 
effect, supervised by the Office of 
Admissions, for four years now. A 
schedule of events follows. 

9-10 a.m.: Registration, to be 
conducted in the Student Union 2nd 
floor lobby. Departments who wish 
to participate will have displays set 

up so that students may browse. 

10- 11 a.m.: A program entitled 
"Demon Connection," designed to 
entertain and inform. Produced by 
Ray Schnexider, and features a 
small skit, the NSU cheerleaders, 
and the Cane River Belles. 

11- 11:40 a.m. and 11:40 a.m. to 
12:10 p.m.: Each student will 
choose his two vocational areas and 
be provided a location to discuss 
with a representative these areas. 
Thirty minutes will be allowed for 
each session. 

12:10-1:00 p.m.: A Dutch treat 
lunch in either the Student Union or 
Iberville cafeterias. 

1-2 p.m.: A concert provided by 
the NSU Entertainers. 

2 p.m.: The program ends. 

Demon Connection is yet another 
effort, a comparatively successful 
one, to up enrollment at NSU. 

Aviation Department ■ Studying Higher Education 

by Sonja Henry 
Sauce Organization's Editor 

"Flying is just like falling off a 
log, only backwards." With those 
philisophical words Lewis 
Panawski, our instructor for the 
day, lifted the tiny Cessna into the 

For those who have never ex- 
perienced the joy of flying, Editor 
LaVere's thirst for a story now 
brings you a bird's eye view. 

I personally have avoided going 
any higher than three flights of 
stairs because of my affection for 
solid ground. In the line of duty, 
however, I now find myself 2000 
feet above mother earth to fully 
expose the NSU Aviation Depart- 

"In the summer the students love 
to fly over Sabine dorm", remarked 
our pilot. I must have looked 
puzzled. I was. He said "The Sun 
Deck, you know." I made a mental 
note to stay away from the sundeck 
this summer. 

"When a student flies for the first 
time, we cover up the instrument 
panel and let him fly by sight. Just 
line the nose of the plane up with the 
horizon" Panski instructed. 

Horizon. So that's what you call 
it. Where the earth meets the sky. 
It blended all together and looked 
like a multi-colored wall. Where 
brown meets blue. Horizon sounds 

The panel before me was a maze 
of buttons and dials and pictures. 
The only familiar objects were the 
pedals and the steering wheels, and 
of course the radio. 

"It's a piece of cake. Here, you 
try it," said Lewis. 

I did. And flying is a piece of 
cake. As long as you don't have to 

change directions. Changing 
directions means the whole plane 
has to tilt sideways. It gives you the 
feeling that you might turn over. 
It's bad enough when someone else 
is the pilot, but when you are the 

I decided to leave the flying to the 
pilot. The SAUCE photographer, 
Mike Fisher was glad I did. He kept 
muttering something about "not 
getting combat pay." 

Our pilot, Lewis Pahawski, is an 
NSU Student Instructor. He ob- 
tained his Pilot's License at the age 
of 18, and has since obtained his 
Instructor's License. At present 
Lewis is gaining air time in order to 
pass his commercial license test, 
which will enable him to work for 
an airline. Lewis is 19 years old. 

NSU is one of only two ' 
universities in Louisiana that offer 
an Aviation Course which is FAA 
(Federal Aviation Association) 

The Aviation Department, 
headed by Larry Varnado, presently 
has 45 students. "We strive for 
quality, not quantity," proclaims 
Lewis. Lewis is one of five in- 
structors in the program, three of 
which are student instructors. 

"The atmosphere is what attracts 
students to a program. If the at- 
mosphere is good, like ours, it 
makes a good impression, but looks 
won't keep students. Instructors 
must motivate students and provide 
good quality. We have good 

The Department currently has 
seven planes for their use. Three of 
the planes are 152 Basic trainer 
planes, two instrument trainers, a 
commercial and a multi-engine 
plane. In addition to the planes, 
they have a ATC Flight simulator 

for use when the weather prohibits 

Two encouraging tips for would- 
be pilots are that the Aviation 
Department has not had a student 
fail a course in two years, and that a 
Private Pilot's license can usually be 
obtained in one semester. 

"Anyone who can pass a second 
class physical can learn to fly," said 

To obtain a Private Pilot License 
under the Aviation program, a 
Sylabus plan is used. The plan is a 

more condensed course which 
requires 45 flying hours, 23 hours of 
which are student and instructor, 
and 22 of which are solo. 

A student literally gives the shirt 
off his back for his first solo flight. 
Tradition mandates that upon 
completion of a first solo flight, a 
piece of the student's shirt is placed 
on the department wall, with his 
name and the date of the event. 

The department puts a stress on 
safety. Before flying a student is 
required to check weather con- 

ditions, fill out a flight release form 
which tells where he is going, how 
long he will be gone, and when he 
will return. After all paperwork is 
approved, only then can the student 


Greg Vasquez, an aviation major, 
who recent passed his Flight In- 
structor's test, brought the 
department a Safety award in 
National Competion last semester.

SGA Hears Numerous Bills 

The concert Feb. 11 proved a big success as a "Ride Like the Wind," is the first large 
crowd estimated at over 3,500 attended. The concert of the spring semester, 
band, known for such hits as "Sailing" and 

Cross Concert Attracts Crowd 

An enthusiastic crowd numbering 
an estimated 3500-4000 people 
attended the Christopher Cross 
concert Feb. 11 in Prather 
Colisuem. The concert was the first 
of a probable two large concerts for 
the spring semester. 

The opening act, Jack Tempchin, 
a singer and comic songwriter, 
entertained a still-incoming crowd 
with songs such as a comic sing-a- 
long, "Eat Some Food, Watch 
TV," and a couple of songs 
recorded by the Eagles. He also 
sang ballads and other songs of his 
own creation, accompanying 
himself with a guitar. 

When Christopher Cross ap- 
peared on stage, one noticed the 
variety of lights and slide show 
presenation in back of the stage. 
When combined with an outpouring 
of smoke at intervals on songs such 
as "Ride Like the Wind" and 
"Sailing," two songs which are hits 
for the band, it proved to be ef- 
fective visual entertainment. 

The show was very smooth and 
professional and for the most part, 
like sitting at home listening to the 
album. Although the concert was 
relatively short in the opinion of 
some people, the quality made up 
for the quantity. 

If there were anv complaints 

about the concert, it was that some 
members of the audience elected to 
shoot off several firecrackers, 
causing an irritating disturbance. 
Though no one was hurt, NSU's 
image as host to the band was 
possibly tarnished. 

The concert ommittee met Feb. 
12, with nothing but raves for the 

"We've had great student turn- 
out, the best attendance at a concert 
since I've been here, and probably 
the best in four or five years," said 
an extremely pleased Augie Mc- 
Clendon, Committee Chairman. 

Another large concert, such as the 
Cross concert, if now being worked 
on for April. McClendon asked 
committee members for student 
input as to what sort of soul group 
would be most wanted. There are 
limitations due to budget and 
scheduling, but the plan is to find 
out what is wanted, from that what 
is affordable, and from that what 
can be scheduled. 

McClendon mentioned that 
Beverly Armstrong, committee 
member, had suggested that Union 
Boards of other schools be sent a 
letter about the concert so people 
from other schools can attend. 

With suggestions like these, 
increased advertisement, and hard

work put forth by the committee,

and moreover, the concerts 
themselves will be quality acts, such 
as the Christopher Cross concert. 

in one 01 me longest meetings of 
the term, the SGA convened Feb. 9 
and was presented with six bills. 

Jim McKellar introduced Bill No. 
26, which is concerned with students 
painting their rooms. The bill calls 
for the painting to first be approved 
by the Housing office, and then 
Housing will provide the paint and 
reimburse the student 5% of his 
Housing fee. The bill was seconded 
and even though some members 
disagreed with the reimbursement, 
the bill passed. 

Susann Crawford moved to 
accept Bill No. 27, which calls for a 
revision of part of the SGA Con- 
stitution concerning the student 
Supreme Court. The bill was 
seconded by Joe Stamey, however, 
Russell Williams moved to table the 
bill until it could be looked into 
further. Sherri Talley seconded the 
motion, and the bill was tabled. The 
bill would have revised the Con- 
stitution to give original jurisdiction 
in all cases of controversy between 
organizations and students, 
organizations and other organ- 
zations, students and students, and 
all cases to which the Student 
Government is a party. The Court 
would also have had the right of 
judicial review of bills passed by the 
Student Senate, and have final 
judgment in the interpretation of 
the SGA Constitution. 

Larry Hall presented Bill No. 28, 
which said that the library and the 
Current Sauce should correspond, 
and that the Current Sauce would 
publish what the library has to 
offer in the area of best sellers, new 
equipment, or displays. The bill was 
seconded and passed. 

Hall also presented Bill No. 29, 
which said that at the end of each 
semester, the SGA "present in the 
Current Sauce the amount spent on 
student activities and list exactly 
where the money has been spent." 
Williams then seconded the bill and 
asked for an amendment to add 
after the word semester, 
"respectfully request each involved 
organization." The amendment 
passed motion and the bill was 
approved with the amendment. 

Joe Stamey introduced Bill No. 
30 which proved controversial in its 
choice of wording. The bill begins 
with "WHEREAS, the current 
degree of pride that rests within 
each NSU student is at an all time 
low," and goes on to suggest a 
musical "campinella-type" device 
to be placed on the roof of the 
Student Union. Members objected 
because it was felt that there are still 
some students who have a great 
amount of pride in NSU. It was 
suggested to amend the wording of 
the first part, but after some 
discussion, Sherri Talley moved to 
table the bill, which was seconded. 
The bill was tabled, with less than 
good humor. 

Hall then moved to accept Bill 
No. 31 as an emergency bill, which 
states "Therefore be it resolved, 
that the NSU'SGA take pride in 
commemorating on the solemn 
celebration observance and 
honorable mention of Black History 
Month." The motion passed, and 
the bill was aceepted. 

Hall gave a report on his library 
survey findings, which detailed that 
students feel the noise level, believed 
to be moderate, will be kept down if 

a library monitor is present. 

In other business, Jim McKellar 
was announced as having been 
appointed to be Potpourri Editor 
for 1981-82. Joe Stamey was ap- 
proved to be appointed to the Pre- 
Registration Committee, which will 
look into procedures for pre- 

Cliff Lopez swore in Susanne 
Crawford and Stan Powell as 
Senators-at-Large, Pat Spruce as 
Senior Class Senator, and Diane 
Leonard as ADOS Representative. 

Kevin Bartholonew announced he

Events Committee, and asked that 
anyone who is interested in being on 
the committee contact him. 

A Colorado cross country skiing 
expedition for Northwestern 
students and other interested in- 
dividuals is scheduled from Feb. 28 
to March 8 under the sponsorship of 
the NSU recreation and oudoor 
education program. 

Dr. Don J. Mendance, recreation 
and outdoor education advisor at 
Northwestern, said a group of 10

powers, upon majority vote of his 
or her committee and by verbal 
acclamation of the President or 
Vice-President of the Student 
Government, to extend any 
prescheduled deadlines should an 
emergency arise." 

Under qualifications for SGA 
Sponsored Elections, the amend- 
ments add another section, Section 
K, to Article III. The new section 
states "No student may qualify or 
file for any honor position or 
election if he or she is not classified 
as a full-time student as defined in 
the NSU catalogue." 

Under Registration of Can- 
didates, Article IV, Section H, 
which states "Should a candidate 
withdraw, his name will not appear 
on the ballot or machine" has been 
replaced. The new Section H states 
"If a candidate wishes to with- 
draw, he or she must present a 
signed written statement of his 
resignation to the Commissioner of 
Elections at least twenty- four hours 
before the election before the name 
can be stricken off of the ballot." 

The rest of the amendments are 
concerned with Article V, Cam- 
paign and Election Procedures. 

Article V, Section K, Subsection 2 
states "Girls receiving most 
nominations will be placed on the 
ballot, the number must be more 
than nine but not exceed eighteen 

except in the case of a tie." This has 
been replaced with "Girls receiving 
the most nominations will be 
placed on the ballot, the number 
must be more than twelve but not to 
exceed eighteen, except in the case 
of a tie." This amendment deals 
with State Fair Court and 
Homecoming Court. 

Article V, Section K, has another 
subsection added as a result of the 
revisions. Article V, Section K, 
Subsection 3 states "In case of a tie 
this number shall not exceed twenty- 
three: This number will be decided 
upon majority vote of the Election 
Board. " 

Article V, Section L, has two 
subsections added, Subsection 3 and 
4. Subsection 3 states in reference 
Mr. and Miss NSU "Those 
receiving the most nominations will 
be placed on the ballot, the number 
must be more than four, but not to 
exceed nine, except in the case of a 

Article IV, Section L, Subsection 
4, which was added by the amend- 
ments, states "In case of a tie this 
number shall not exceed twelve; this 
number will be decided upon 
majority vote of the Election 

Article V also has five new sec- 
tions added. Article V, Section N, is 
concerned with dorm floors.

states "The House Director of each

been completed, before the 
nominations can become valid, (a) 
In the absence of a House Director 
this form must be signed by the

Article V, Section N, Subsection 
2, states "The House Director must 
post dates and times of all floor 
nomination meetings at several 
locations throughout the dorm at 
least three days prior to the posted 

Article V, Section O, which was 
added by the amendments, states 
"The Commissioner of Elections 
must present all nomination sheets 
for all dorms and campus 
organizations to the Director of 
Housing at least three weeks prior 
to the nomination deadline. " 

Article V, Section P, again added 
by the amendments, states "All 
nomination sheets must be placed in 
all dorms' and campus 
organizations' boxes at least two 
weeks prior to the nomination 
deadline. " 

Article V, Section P, Subsection 

1, states "If any nomination sheets

Article V, Section P, Subsection 

2, states "If more than one

A section of particular interest for 
commuters was added to Article V. 
Article V, Section Q, Subsection 1, 
states "The nomination procedure 
shall be supervised by the Com-

Section Q, Subsection 2, states 
"The date will be set at least two 

weeks prior to the nomination 
deadline and shall be well publicized 
at lea»i one week prior to the 
nomination date." 
Article V, Section Q, Subsection 

3, states "Each student must be

presentation of fee sheet and

I.D., to be checked with the name

Article V, Section Q, Subsection 

4, states "The top nominees will be

For all elections except Mr. and 
Miss NSU, the top three nominees 
will be placed on the nomination 
form, (b) For Mr. and Miss NSU, 
only one male and one female will 
be placed on the nomination form." 

With the Election Code thus 
updated and revised, it should prove 
to be a stronger, smoother code 
than the previous one. The Officers 
Elections for the SGA are ap- 
proaching, and these amendments 
will affect them in that the Com-

more specifically outlined duties, 
and candidates for the positions will 
be better informed as to procedure.

SUGB Delays Action 
On Budget Revisions 

Action on the overestimated 
Spring budget did not occur at this 
weeks meeting of the Student Union 
Governing Board, held on Feb. 10. 
According to Board president, Ron 
Thomas, steps to render the $4575 
mistake will not take place until the 
Board meets on Feb. 24. 

"The reason we delayed action on 
this", explains Thomas, "is because 
we are hoping to bring in enough 
money at the (Cross) concert to 
cover this." Thomas stated that the 
Board was hoping to make enough 
money in gate receipts to offset the 
negative balance. "If we are able to 
do that then nobody's budget has to 
be changed." 

Thomas stated that it wouldn't be 
feasible to change all the budgets, 
just to have to re-change them if 
enough money was made at the 
concert. "If we don't make it at the 
conce then we are going to have to 
revise the budgets and we are going 
to have to make some cuts." 

When asked when this action 
would take place, Thomas stated 
that the Board would not be able to 
act on the matter during the Feb. 17 
meeting because some of the Board 
members will no be present, but that 
action on the matter will begin Feb. 
24. Thomas states, "that would give 
us a week to prepare." 

In Old Business Archie Anderson, 
Board First Vice-President, opened 
the floor for discussion of a motion 
that would allow a local home for 
distraught girls to recieve free or 
reduced admission the Board 
sponsored events. 

Most of the discussion was in 
opposition th the proposition. Max 
Ates, SGA representative to the 
Board, stated that he was against 
the idea, "because other 
organizations would come in, and 
already students are asking where 
student money is going." Ates went 
on to sat that "the girls that are 
going to be living in that house are 
not even of college age." 

Davis Palamor, a graduate 
assistant to the Board suggested that 
some of the organizations on 
campus sponsor the girls so that 
they could attend University events. 

Finally Archie Anderson moved 
that the girls not be allowed to 
attend Union Board events at a free 
or even reduced rate. There were no 
votes to allow the girls to attend, but 
there were some abstentions; not 
enough though, the motion carried. 

In other SUGB business it was 

announced that the Cinemafocus 
committee has started making plans 
for scheduling films to be shown in 
the fall. Although no decisions 
have been made as to next semesters 
films, Jim Hurd, a graduate 
assistant filling in for absent Jack 
Welch, stated that this semsesters 
showing of "Night of the Living 
Dead" went over very well, saying, 
"I understand a few Union Board 
people were there, and are still 
having nightmares." The next film 
scheduled for this semester will be 
"The Wiz", which will be shown in 
the Kyser auditorium, Feb. 19-20 at 

The first meeting of Committee 
Chairman Vertiss Mack's Fine Arts 
Committee, fell short of expected 
attendance. Mack stated that she 
felt that more people whold show up 
to her next meeting and reminded 
the Board that "Diamond Studs- 
The Life of Jessie James" is 
scheduled for Feb. 24 in the 
Student Union Ballroom. 

Kevin Bartholomew, in his SGA 
report to the Board, reported that 
one of the assaultors at the 
Shreveport Campus has been 
arrested and is being held by 
Shreveport Police for questioning. 

With Board elections just around 
the corner, Archie Anderson an- 
nounced filing dates and election 
dates for candidates. Executive 
officers filings open Feb. 17 and 
close on March 6. Committee 
Chairmen filings will open on Feb. 
17 and close on March 13. Executive 
and Committee Chairman elections 
will be held on March 10 and March 
17, respectively. 

Representative-at-Large filings 
open on Feb. 23 and close March 10. 
Campus-wide elections for SUGB 
Reps will be held on March 18, with 
ADOS to vote March 17 and 
Warrington to vote on March 16. 
Runoff elections will be held on 
March 25. 

To file for a position on the 
SUGB simply go by the SU office, 
Rm. 214 and pick up an application. 

Finally, in the area of New 
Business, Augie McClendon, 
Concert Committee Chairman, 
moved that a maximum of $600 be 
alloted for Supertrooper spotlights 
for the Cross Concert. McClendon 
also moved that "The Amazing 
Jonathon" magic act be moved 
from the evening of Feb. 25 to the 
afternoon. Both motions carried.

Quotations From 

Editor La Vere 

Student Rights 

Positive Image? 

"Were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government 
without newspapers or newspapers without government , I should not 
hesitate a moment to prefer the latter." The words of Thomas Jefferson, 
third President of the United States. 

What is the role of the student newspaper on the university campus? 
According to some, it is to be used as a public relations sheet that will bring 
out the positive attributes of the unversity. Others feel that the paper should 
only promote certain individuals or groups on campus. And of course each 
individual or group feels that it is the most important on campus. There are 
those who feel that the newspaper should report the news, bo good and bad. 
Finally, there are many who just don't give a damnone way or another. 

First of all, lets put to rest the misconception that a student newspaper is 
to totally be a public relations sheet for the university. If you believe this, 
then you have a serious fault in your thinking. This paper is the STUDENT 
newspaper. It is not a PR sheet for the university Administration. Of course 
some things that do go into the paper are PR for the university but the paper 
is not designed to solely be such. 

The paper is not organized to promote one group or another. But to 
attempt, and I say attempt, to give recognition to all groups at the 
university. A few years ago, the SAUCE was an all-Greek newspaper, we 
have attempted to spread this recognition out a little. But you wouldn't 
believe, every organization on this campus, no matter how large or small, 
feels that it must have top priority coverage. 

For those who just don't give a damn. Well, don't read the paper and I'll 
gladly take your three dollars every semester to help run the paper. 

As for me, the role of the student newspaper is to report th news - all of it, 
both good and bad. My allegiance and responsibility is to the students of 
Northwestern, not to the faculty or administration. The reports of a 
student's rights being violated is much more important that lying to create a 
positive image of the university. 

The student newspaper is in a sensitive position since it is up to them to 
act as a watchdog for student's rights, but then again it is a part of the 
university. Therefore the student newspaper is between the proverbial rock 
and a hard place. 

But the United States Supreme Court has ruled that student newspapers 
have the same rights as real-life newspapers. The right to freedom of the 
press under the first amendment is just as pertinent to the Current Sauce as 
It is to the Washington Post or the New York Times. 

But at Northwestern, the newspaper has been dominated for years either 
by the administration or special interest groups. In the past, the paper has 
been a tool of the administration. I have seen past editors grovel before the 
administration because they printed something that the powers-that-be 
didn't like. When an editor didn't present the all-important positive image, 
they caught hell. 

It is the all-consuming belief in printing the positive that is leading this 
university down the road to ruin. There are things wrong at this university, 
but then it is nothing so serious that cannot be remedied. By sweeping 
mistakes, incompetence, and mess-ups under the carpet does not make this 
university any better it only perpetuates the wrong doings and in the end 
makes the school worse off. 

There has got to be a balance between PR, group promotion, and hard- 
hitting news stories. As long as nothing "bad" is printed about the 
university, then the powers-that-be like the paper. But if a "negative" story 
is published, then the paper "is not creating a positive image." They forget 
all the positi stories that we do run. 

After our last edition, I overheard someone tell one of my reporters that 
if we would always print glowing reports about the SUGB like we did last 
week, that would be considered honest, true and fair journalism. Christ, 
with thinking like that just where IS this school going. 

If I can say one thing about the Sauce, we do give credit where credit is 
due. After our numerous fights with the SUGB, we still print their up- 
coming event and probably give them more space in the paper than any 
other organization. 

The Sauce has virtually given away space to groups and individuals to 
help them promote some event. We have published positive stories on a 
number of individuals and groups, but when we print what the ad- 
ministration calls a "negative or derogatory" story, all our good work is 
forgotten and then we become that "damned newspaper." 

To put it in the words of Samuel Johnson, "The liberty of the press is a 
blessing when we are inclined to write against others, and a calamity when 
we find ourselves overborne by the multitude of our assailants." 

In other words, as long as I am editor, the students can count on their 
rights to be protected and their welfare to be watched out for. To hell with a 
positive image at the expense of the NSU students.

Student Government Association 
and Student Union Governing 
Board elections will be held in the 
early part of next month and the 
students of this University will be 
once again called upon to choose 
those few who will represent them in 
those governing bodies. 

It is a fact that some students that 
attend here really don't care who 
gets elected. Some simply vote for 
the most handsome or the prettiest. 
Some simply pull levers and 
whoever is luckiest gets their vote. 
But those are the exception. 

For the most part, the many 
students who attend here place as 
much stock in these elections as they 
would a presidential election. And 
their attitude deserves a just 

These students are people who are 
responsible people; people who take 
pride in their school and would like 
to see it grow. They realize that the 
person who recieves their vote will 
have the power to shape the future 
of Northwestern, to change the past 
mistakes and oversights made here, 
and to enhance the present daily lives 
of all who attend here. 

For the most part those elected 
are responsible people who realize 
that they have these powers and they 
try to use them to the advantage of 
each student who lives here. 

These elected students try to face 
each problem that arises with the 
knowledge that those who have 
elected them are banking on their 
knowledge, their honesty and their 
good sense. 

There are those elected to the S 
GA and the SUGB that are not very 
responsible people. These are the 
students who are constantly talking, 
whispering, and passing notes to 
one another. These are the students 
who spend hundreds of dollars on 
advertising to get a Representative- 
at-Large seat, simply for the title 
that goes along with it, and the 
space alloted in the yearbook for 
their recognition. These are the 
people who should be told to step 

Youre probably wondering who 
these people are. You're thinking 
that once the elections are over 
you"ll never hear of these people 
again. It dosen't have to be that 
way. By law you, the student, are 
allowed to attend any and every 
SGA and SUGB meeting held. Many 
of you don't have the time though, 
so you read the paper to see what 
goes on in these meetings. 

Well, you have read. 

For the last two semesters you 
have had the opportunity to read 
stories on both the SGA and the 
SUGB. For every meeting of these 
all-important governing bodies 
there is a story in this paper to go 
right alongside it. 

What I am asking of you is that if 
you cannot attend these meetings, 
then take the time to read of them in 
the Sauce. Then use that in- 
formation to make the wisest choice 
come election time. But do not stop 
there. You have the right to 
question the candidates about their 
views on the future of Northwestern 

Don't bank on slogans such as, 
"The future of Northwestern is my 
concern." Slogans such as these are 
very shallow and sometimes are 
meant to be that way. 

Find out EXACTLY how the 
candidate will respond when faced 
with specific problems. Also find 
out how the candidate will go about 
gathering student input. If the 
candidate can answer that one, then 
he or she is a pretty good bet. 

If the person running for office 
dosen't make his views clear, ask 
him to clairify, and if he still 

SGA Minutes- 

remains vague, by all means don't 
vote for him. 

The governmental and social 
future of any community rests 
within the common sense and 
foresight of its occupants. The same 

is true with Northwestern; after all 
we are but a small community and 
we must take responsibility for how 
this community is run. 

So when you reach up to pull the 
lever of a candidate on election dav. 

remember that you are pulling the 
lever on your future as a student 
here, and remember that the 
responsibility of .your choice is a 
great one .

Dear Mr. LaVere, 

Concerning your editorial about 
Marine Pfc Robert Garwood in last 
weeks Current Sauce, I feel that 
your writing was pure BS. 

First of all if Pfc Garwood was 
just a 19-year-old jeep driver near 
Da Nang, how did he just so happen 
to be captured by the enemy and 
taken to a North Vietnamese POW 
camp? That did not happen to 
often, especially with ground, and 
combat support troops. 

Secondly, I have been around a 
military environment all my life and 
the people that I have talked to 
about Garwood have all been to 
Vietnam at least twice, and they feel 
he should be tried not only for 
collaboration but also for treason. 
And yes 14 years in Vietnam is a 
long time, but what about his fellow 
Americans who died there, and 
whose souls shall remain there 

I do agree with you about one 
thing, and that is, "collaboratin is 
the key word." However, you make 
it seem that Garwood was the only 
poor unlucky soul that was tor- 
tured. His peers were tortured too, 
and yes they probably did 
collaborate. However, they did not 
guard the POW camp as Garwood 
did, they did not elect to stay behind 
when it was time to come home, and 

sure there probably was a few fights 
between the prisoners, but I don't 
feel that it was a deliberate blow as 
was Garwood's strike to one of his 
fellow countryman. 

I personally feel that anyone that 
sides with all the Garwoods, and 
Jane Fondas should just pack their 
bags and get the hell out of Dodge. 
Man, go to Iran or something to 
live, 'cause that were it all hap- 

It's that laid back attitude that 
will get you every time. This 
country has been pushed around 
long enough, I feel it's time we 
started to show the world who's 
boss; and I don't mean through 

All the draft dodgers should be 
thrown in jail with no amnesty, all 
the Garwood's should have the 
screws put to them, and all the Jane 
Fonda's should be taken out behind 
the barn and shot. 

Because when you defend one of 
the draft dodgers you are saying 
something bad about every service 
man that risked his life for his 

But getting back to PFC Gar- 
wood, why would the North 
Vietnamese want a 19 year old 
collaborator in the first place; I 
know they aren't the smartest 
people in the world but they sure 
had a lot of Air Force pilots over 
thirty that knew a hell of a lot more 
than a private. 

Oh, and by the way Editor La 
Vere I do agree with you on just one 
more point; let the man go home 
back to Vietnam.

Lady Demons Close Season with Three Wins 

Battling On The Boards 

Northwestern Lady Demon Joan Darbonne battles for this 
rebound with Southern's Claretta Shaffers (left) and Eve 
Johnson during the two team's contest last Thursday night in 
Prather Coliseum. Darbonne scored 17 points in her final 
home appearance as a Lady Demon in an 86-76 win while 
Marilyn Gates (45) led all scorers with 21 tallies. Also watching 
the action is NSU's Stephany Washington. 

Delaney Honored Thursday 

Joe Delaney, Northwestern's all- 
time leading ground gainer, was 
honored in halftime ceremonies as 
part of the "Pack Prather" 
festivities in Prather Coliseum 
Thursday night. 

Dr. Rene Bienvenu accepted a 
plaque from ABC — Television for 
Delaney's phenomenal 128-yard 
effort against Northeast on regional 
television. The network also 
awarded the university a $1,000 
scholarship for the general 
scholarship fund in Delaney's name. 

During the ceremony, Delaney 
was recognized as being a two-time 
Ail-American and became only the 
second Northwestern gridder to 
have his football jersey and number 
retired. Former Demon great Al 
Dodd, an All-American at safety 
with 31 career interceptions, is the 
only other Northwestern player to 
be so honored 

After receiving a thunderous 
standing ovation from the more- 

than-4,000 fans present for the 
Northwestern-Centenary roundball 
tilt, Delaney took the microphone 
and thanked the fans, his team- 
mates, and the NSU coaching staff 
for making the evening possible. 

Delaney broke or tied virtually 
tied every Demon rushing and 
scoring record during his four-year 
career in the purple, orange, and 
white of Northwestern. 

The Haughton native surpassed 
the Pittsburgh Steelers' Sidney 
"Thundering Bull" Thornton as the 
school's all-time leading rusher with 
3,047 career yards. He also set 
school scoring marks with 31 
touchdowns and a 2-point con- 
version for 188 total points, just to 
mention a few of the stellar back's 

Participating in the ceremonies 
were Delaney, Bienvenu, Dr. Dan 
Carr, chairman of the NSU Athletic 
Council, and A.L. Williams, head 
football coach and athletic director. 

Senior guard Linda Jones scored 
eight-straight points late in the 
second half to forge NSU's Lady 
Demons ahead by 16 points and the 
NSU girls went on to an 88-76 win 
over Nicholls State Saturday night 
in Thibodaux. 

Nicholls had drawn to within 70- 
60 before Jones went on her spree, 
boosting the Lady Demons ahead by 
78-62 with 6:40 left in the contest. 
Jones wound up with 13 points and 
was one of five NSU players in 
double figures. 

Fellow senior Joan Darbonne 
paced the winners with 17 points as 
NSU closed out the regular season 
with a 17-8 record. The season 
worksheet represented the best 
winning percentage ever for a Lady 
Demon team. 

Stephany Washington came off 
the bench to score 14 points while 
Marilyn Gates and Tracy Taylor 
each had 12. The Lady Demons shot 
54 percent from the field in the win 
and added 24 of 31 free throws. 

NSU staked itself to a 50-42 
halftime lead thanks to 14 first-half 
points by Darbonne, who finished 
her regular-season career in the win 
as did Jones. Taylor added 12 points 
in the opening 20 minutes for NSU. 

The Lady Demons took com- 
mand early and built up an 1 1 -point 
lead, 23-12, with 11:51 to go in the 
opening half befor Nicholls came 
charging back. The hosts took a 
three-point advantage at the 6:51 
mark on a bucket by Lydia Sawney 
but NSU outscored the Lady 
Colonels 12-2 over the next three 
minutes to regain the lead, 39-32. 

Taylor then took over and scored 
three buckets to help the Lady 
Demons take the 50-42 intermission 

Nicholls never got closer than six 
points in the second half as NSU 
stayed ahead by 10 or more points 
for the final 14 minutes. 

NSU Grid Banquet 
Slated Feb. 26 

Northwestern will hold its annual 
football banquet on Feb. 26 in the 
NSU Student Union Ballroom. The 
banquet is being sponsored by the 
Natchitoches Rotary Club and will

Miller Athletes of the Week 

Ray Baggett 

Linda Jones 

A pair of hot-shooting guards who figured heavily in NSU Demon and Lady Demon wins 
during last week earn Miller Athlete of the Week honors after their efforts. 

Junior Ray Baggett netted 19 points in a 91-81 overtime win over Centenary and came back 
with a dozen against Nicholls State Saturday night in a 67-59 Demon setback. Baggett a 
transfer fromOberlin, hit on 13 of 19 field goal attempts in the two contests. 

Playmaking Linda Jones took a different role in two Lady Demon wins, helping the team up 
its mark to 17-8. Jones bombed in 14 points against Southern Thursday night and came back 
with 13 in an 88-76 win over Nicholls St. Saturday. 

Her 13 in the Saturday win included eight-straight that all but sealed the win for NSU late in 
the game. Jones, a senior from Fort Walton Beach, Fla., played her final regular-season game 
at Nicholls. 

Sponsored by Natchitoches Beverage 

Sharon Brown led the NSU squad 
in rebounding with 10 while Gates 
added seven caroms. Darlene 
Mitchell was the top boardworker 
for Nicholls with 11 while Donna 
Wallace scored 17 points to pace the 

Darbonne and Jones closed out 
their home careers in style last 
Thursday night, scoring 16 and 14 
points, respectively, to help aid an 
important 86-76 win over tough 

The win gave the Lady Demons 
momentum heading into the 
LAIAW state tournament later this 
month and was only the second 
Southern loss to a state team this 
season. McNeese is the only other 
Louisiana school to defeat the 
talented Lady Jaguars. 

Although Darbonne and Jones 
got most of the attention on th 
night, it was the 21-point per- 
formance of center Marilyn Gates 
that made the difference. Gates, a 
junior from Benton, scored 14 of 
her game-high total in the second 
half as NSU erased a 41-40 halftime 

The main thrust in the victory was 
a 12-0 spurt by the Lady Demons 
midway through the second half, 
rallying them from a 54-53 deficit 
and pushing them ahead to stay at 
65-54. Southern, which was held 
scoress for over three minutes, 
never got closer than six points the 
rest of the way. 

Both Brown and Taylor figured 
heavily in the win by netting 11 
points apiece while Taylor and 
Washington pulled down eight 

rebounds apiece to lead the team. 
Gates had seven caroms. 

Southern was paced by Eve 
Coleman's 17 points. 

NSU enjoyed a 45-27 edge in free 
throw attempts over the foul-prone 
Lady Jags, who hit 18 of their at- 
tempts while the Lady Demons 
made good on 30 of their 45 tries. 

The Lady Demons, who ended 
the regular with a three-game 
winning streak and have won 
nineoftheir last 10 contests, got the 
skein going with a win over Nor- 

theast in Monroe last Monday 

Darbonne popped in 20 points 
and Jones, Gates and Brown added 
12 each in a 73-69 win. NSU led 43- 
36 at the half before the Lady In- 
dians got hot and took the lead 
briefly at 50-49 with 11:01 left to 

However, NSU came back with 
six-straight points and went on to 
take the victory. 

Dawn Ash and Carla Vickers 
paced NLU with 16 points apiece. 

The Intramural weightlifting championships were held last 
week at the Intramural Building. The champions and their 
respective weight classes are (left to right) Kenny Gray, 130- 
150, James Butler, 170-190, Anthony James, 150-170, and Fred 
Galloway, 190 and up. The awards were sponsored by Nat- 
chitoches and the Miller Brewing Co. 

Gymnastics Club to Perform Feb. 21 

Whenever the sport of Gym- 
nastics is mentioned, most people 
immediately think of Nadia 
Comaneci, Kurt Thomas, or maybe 
even Centenary star Kathy Johnson. 
But did you know that you have 
some fine, dedicated gymnists in 
your own back yard? That's right, 
Northwestern's own Gymnastics 
Club has eleven hard working 
gymnists and one talented coach by 
the named of Vicki Morton. 

The club will perform during 
halftime in the NSU-Samford 
basketball game on February 21 and 
later in Spring exibitions in the P. E. 
Majors building. 

Miss Morton, who is originally 
from Alabama, started the club last 
semester when she came to teach at 
NSU. "I found that the gymnastics 
students needed more time than was 
afforded them in the classes alone. 
Therefore we began a Gymnastics 
Club." stated Morton. 

Although the club does perform, 
Morton is quick to point out that 
the gymnists group is not an athletic 
team. The members pay for 

everything they need by raising 
money and collecting club dues. 
"Our people get no money what- 
soever from this university," 
commented Morton. "They raise 
the money and work very hard 
because they truly love Gym- 

Loving Gymnastics means 
practicing five days a week with 
little or no recognition. But the 
work has been paying off. "You 
know, it's amazing how much these 
kids accomplish. You have to 
understand that most of these 
people have little or no experience 
because few high schools offer 
Gymnastics!" exclaimed Morton. 

This lack of experience is one 
reason the club is not a comperitive 
team. But Miss Morton is very 
happy with the club as it stands and 
sees no changes in the near future. 
In fact the club bears no resem- 
blence to the NSU Gymnastics 
Team of A decade ago, a team 
which won numerous titles and 

However non-competitive, the 

club have three members who have 
the capabilities for performing in 
competition. According to Morton, 
Lisa Stegall, Wendy Wybill, and 
Teresa Pererson are three of the 
finest members in the club. 

The officers of the club are as 
follows: Kevin Green, President; 
Lisa Stegall, Vice-President; and 
Windy Wybill, Secretary Treasurer. 

"Kevin, our president, works 
very hard." said Morton, "He's a 
very dedicated youn man." 

The remainder of the club include 
J.D. Banks, Veronica Wolf, Leslie 
Comeaux, Harlan Harvey, John 
Jonviccento, Loretta Harrison, Jo 
Blanchard, and Sammy Scruggs. 

Miss Morton, who also teaches 
several classes, welcomes anyone 
wishing to join a Gymnastics class 
or even the club if the student has 
the background needed to join. 
"We are always happy to accept 
anyone in our Gymnastics classes." 
commented Morton. "Who knows 
what might develop if we keep 
getting students in the satisfying 
sport of Gymnastics."

Demon Roundballers Drop Gents in OT, Lose To Nicholls State 

Ex-Centenary Gent Wayne 
Waggoner popped in 26 points and 
ex-McNeese Cowboy Ray Baggett 
tossed in 19 more as the Nor- 
thwestern Demons exploded for 18 
points on the first overtime period 
and the Demons rolled to a 91-81 
victory over the TAAC leading 
Centenary Gentleman before a 
packed crowd at Prather Coliseum. 

Waggoner gave ex-coach Tommy 
Canterbury and his other ex- 
teammates fits all night long as time 
and time again he threw in those 
patented fong bombs of his. 
Waggoner also went to the free 
throw line 10 times and made every 
one of those shots. 

Baggett hit a sparkling eight of 1 1 
shots from the field and added three 
free throws for his 19 points. 
Baggett came off the bench and 
played 36 of the 45 minutes of the 
game, and turned in one of his most 
outstanding games ever. 

The game started off with the 

A second half cold streak and a 
rash of fouls spelled defeat for the

Demon Roundballers 
Ranked In TAA C Stats 

Northwestern is well represented 
in the Trans America Athletic 
Conference weekly press release for 
the weekly press release for the week 
ending February 12th. 

The Demons were idled in sixth 
place but with their win over 
Centenary are now tied for fifth and 
should get higher. They are only 
three games out of the lead. 

As a team the Demons are third in 
rebound defense and field goal 
percent. Fourth in scoring and fifth 
in scoring defense. NSU is sixth in 
scoring margin averaging one point 
more per game than their opponents 

and seventh and eighth in 
rebounding and free throw per- 

Individually for the Demons 
Wayne Waggoner is the sixth 
leading scorer in the conference with 
a 15.9 norm and Fred Piper is right 
behind him in seventh place with a 
15.4 clip. 

Piper is third in rebounding with 
an 8.3 mark and sixth in field goal 
percentage with a .554 average. 
Demon guard Melvin Youngblood* 
ranks sixth in free throw percent* 
with a .716 mark and eighth in 
assists with a 3.4 average. 

Intramural basketball is just 
getting underway and how about 
that University of Yang team? 
Sources close to Stuff say that Yang 
head coach David Stamey is being 
rumored for the job at LSU should 
Dale Brown step down this year. 

On another and far more in- 
teresting subject, Saturday February 
21st has been proclaimed "Demons 
Break 100" night. Although no 
official proclamation has been 
issued by the Athletic Department, 
several NSU students decided that 
since "Pack Prather" night went 
over so well then another special 
night ought to be held. In- 
cidentally, the team that the 
Demons will break 100 on will be 
San ford University. As of this 
writing San ford and Northwestern 
are tied for fifth in the TAAC race, 
so everybody is encouraged to come 
out and support those Demons. 

The crowd at "Pack Prather" 
night was really by far and away the 
best crowd that Northwestern has 
had this year. 3500 loud and en- 
thusiastic partisans gave it their all 
and watched NSU crush a hapless 
Centenary team. 

The Demons played most of the 
night at a disadvantage. In the first 
place it was seven on five. How you 
ask, was it seven on five? Well if 
you went to the game, you certainly 
realize that the two guys in the 
pinstripes weren't giving us the 
benefit of the doubt. Matter of fact, 
they weren't giving us any benefit at 

But if any of you remember, it 
has been that way with NSU all 
year. And this not only holds true 
for the Demons but for some of the 
other TAAC members as well. 

The officiating in the TAAC is 
just horrendous, or even worse, 
absurd, Northwestern has been 
called for 493 fouls this year 
compared to just 389 for their 
opponents. My goodness, that is a 
difference of over 100 fouls in 20 
games. Thursday night for instance, 
NSU had five, count 'em, five guys 
with three fouls in the first half. 
Golly, I mean, I mean that's alot, 
but even more impressive, or 
unimpressive was the fact that NSU 

defending TAAC Champions 
building a 10-5 lead before Nor- 
thwestern caught fire and scored 
five straight to tie the game. 

From there it was nip and tuck as 
both the Demons and Gents traded 
baskets for most of the next 14 
minutes. With two minutes left, 
Waggoner got hot and scored eight 
of the last nine Demon points in- 
cluding a 26 footer with one-fourth 
of a second left in the half. 

The first half belonged to 
Waggoner, Baggett and the referees. 
Waggoner had 15 points, Baggett 
12, and the officials had 20. That is, 
they had 20 fouls called on Demon 
players. Five Demons had three 
personal fouls 

When the second half started with 
the Demons in front by a fairly 
comfortable 49-42 margin the Gents 
came out ready to play. 

After an opening bucket by Fred 
Piper, Centenary settled down to 
play some real ball. It took them 
nine minutes but they finally went in 

front at 60-59. Baggett put the 
Demons out in front with a jumper 
from the free throw line and Earnest 
Reliford gave NSU a three point 
lead with a tip in. 

Then Centenary's Rusty Ward 
and Willie Jackson hit a couple of 
points each and Centenary was back 
on top. The lead see-sawed back and 
forth for the next eight minutes 
until it was 70-69 Centenary. 

Waggoner was fouled at this 
point and made both free throws to 
put NSU back on top, but the Gents 
Lorin George hit a jumper to give 
them the lead. Waggoner went to 
the line again and made both free 
throws to give Northwestern a 73-72 
lead with 1:31 left, but a foul shot 
by Willie Jackson with 1:12 left sent 
the game into overtime. 

After a short rest, the Demons 
came back on the court, and with 
the screaming of 3500 fans behind 
them, they proceeded to annihilate 
the Gents by scoring 18 points 
just five minutes of overtime play 


NSU 59 Nicholls 67 

Demons as they 
13th game against 
time to an inspired 
team, 67-59, in 

dropped their 
eight wins, this 
Nicholls State 

The Demons shot a dismal 38°7o 
from the floor in the second half 
and committed 17 personal fouls in 
that half that erased a six point lead 
with 10 minutes to play. 

The first half was nip and tuck as 
neither team could manage a lead of 
more than four points and that 
came only once. Nicholls Harvey 
Brown hit a 22 foot bomb from the 

right corner to give the Colonels 
their largest lead of the first half 22- 
18. NSU played hard that half and 
pulled ahead at the 1:28 mark on a 
Frederick Piper slam dunk. 

After Brown tied the score again, 
Melvin Youngblood threw one in 
from the deep left side and NSU was 
again on top. 

Nicholls tied it up on a sot with 28 
seconds left and Northwestern 
failed to put it in the remaining 

Wayne Waggoner and Ray 
Baggett scored 10 each in that half 
and the Demons shot 66%from the 
outside, but for some reason they 

just could not put the game away. 

When the two teams took the 
floor in the ensuing half, it was 
finally the Demons turn to play with 
the lead. Waggoner hit the first two 
points of the half to give NSU the 
lead and three minutes later he hit 
another to give them another lead. 

Shortly thereafter Piper got hot 
and scored eight quick points to give 
the Demons their biggest lead of the 
night 46-40. 

From there it was all downhill for 
NSU when Nicholls outscored the 
Demons 14-2 to take a six point lead 
for their biggest lead up to that 

When the smoke cleared in that 
extra period, Harry Francis had 
come away with six pressure packed 
free throws to ice the game, and 
Roger Nolan who hit the first four 
points of the overtime period, in- 
timidated the Gents to no end with 
his muscular inside play. 

Besides Waggoner's 26 points and 
Baggett's 19, Reliford chipped in 10 
points for the Demon cause. 

Underneath Jim Hoops came 
away with one of the guttiest inside 
games by any Demon in a long time. 
Hoops pulled down nine rebounds 
in only 28 minutes of play time for 
the Demons. Fred Piper also had a 
tremendous inside game for the 
Demons as he pulled down seven 
carmos. Francis, Waggoner and 
Melvin Youngblood each dished out 
three assists for the winning cause 
and Reliford rejected a couple of 

The win upped NSU's TAAC 
record to 4-5 and dropped Cen- 
tenary to 6-2 in TAAC play. 

After that Nicholls used a slow 
down offense to increase their lead 
to the game winning eight points. 

Leading the way for Nor- 
thwestern was Piper with 17 points 
and Waggoner and Baggett with 14 
and 12 points. 

Piper had eight rebounds and 
Earnest Reliford had five for the 
Demon cause. Piper and 
Youngblood each dished out four 
assists to lead the Demons. 

Northwesern plays tonight at the 
University of Southern Mississippi. 

North western Tennis Team Readies For Season 

out-fouled Centenary 20-12 in the 
first half. Some skeptics might point 
out that at the end of the game 
Centenary trailed the Demons by 
only one foul, 34-33. But few realize 
that 10 of the last 12 Centenary 
fouls were intentional ones. They 
were behind and trying to catch up 
(which they never did). 

Did you know that of those 33 
fouls called on Centenary, 10 were 
in the overtime period after they fell 
behind by 10 points? Judge for 
yourself. If last Thursday was the 
only time that had happened, you 
could probably overlook it, but it 

Against the University of 
Arkansas at Little Rock, NSU was 
whistled for 35 fouls compared to 
26. But being the great team that it 
is, Northwestern won that game. 

Against Southeastern University, 
NSU was whistled for 32 fouls 
compared with 21 for the Lions. 
Hard to play ball when the zebra 
shirts keep sounding mating calls 
with their whistles. 

All of this may sound like sour 
grapes, and yes I realize it, but it 
definitly is a problem, and one that 
the TAAC commissioner is aware of 
too. So far nothing seems to be 
getting done about it so we have to 
take matters into our own hands. 

What do we do you say? Riots? 
Boycotts? What? 

The answer. Fan participation. 
Oh wow man, I've heard it all 
before, you tell me. Get out there 
and support those Demons. You 
saw what it did last Thursday 
against Centenary. In spite of some 
blatently unrespectable calls, the 
Demons managed to stay in the 

And it was partially because of 
the tremendous crowd support. In 
the overtime period 3500 screaming 
voice boxs thundered down on an 
obviously intimidated Gent team. 
You helped bring about the win. 

So remember, the Demons next 
game is set for Saturday night and it 
has been labeled "Demons Break 
100" night. So go out and watch 
those Demons destroy Samford. 
I'm predicting a wipeout NSU 124

Question: What Northwestern 
athletic team, male or female, has 
an 83.7% winning mark for the past 
eight years running? What team 
lost only two games out of 48 in a 
two year period? The answer: the 
Northwestern Men's tennis team. 

The 1981 rendition of the NSU 
tennis team will have to live up to 
the "Dynasty" image of the 
previous tennis teams here, and 
according to coach Johnnie Em- 
mons, they can. 

Coach Emmons welcomes back 
six regulars from last years squad 
that went 13-5 in 1980 and claimed 
the consolation title in the Trans 
America Athletic Conference 

Senior Iker Ortiz from Mexico 
City, will be back and playing 
number one for the Demons, Iker 
was 12-8 last year and will be 
looking to improve on that mark. 
Iker is the standout and will more 
than likely key whatever success the 
Demons netters will encounter. 

Also back from last years team is 
Donny Lovo. Donny was 20-5 on 
the year which was the best mark 
posted by any Demon Netter. 
Donny will start off playing the 
number three seed for the Demons 
and he will be looking to better his 
sterling 20-5 record of a year ago 
too. Donny is from Guayavil, 

The number four seed will be 
Jorge Salkeld. Jorge is from Lima, 
Peru, and is coming off a 20-7 year 
that was third on the NSU team. 
Jorge is in his sophomore year at 
Northwestern and will undoubtably 
be a main fixture in the Demon 

teams of the next three years. 

Lytt Allen, a San Antonian, will 
bring his 19-7 record back to the 
courts for another year, and this 
year he will mainly concentrate on 
the doubles games. 

Last year Lytt teamed up with 
Jorge to post a sparkling 20-6 record 
as doubles partners. 

Alfredo Trullenque will be back 
for the Demon netters after a 12-7 
year. Alfredo will probably play 
fifth or sixth seed for NSU. Alfredo 
is from Santigo, Chile, and as 
doubles partner with Donny Lovo, 

posted a 14-8 worksheet. 

Felipe Marrou, journeyman 
doubles player and spot singles 
player will be battling for the fifth 
or sixth seed position too. Felipe is 
from Caracas, Venezuela and was 3- 
3 in doubles action last year playing 
with three different partners. 

Morris Brown is a freshman to 
the NSU net scene. Morris is from 
St. Croix, Virgin Islands, and he 
will be battling for the fifth or sixth 
seed spot too. 

Wynand Wessels another 
freshman, is from Sellendam, South 
Africa, and will be looking to fill in 
at the number two seed. 

Hugo Mollina is another first 
time NSU netter, Hugo is from 
Cuayarvil, Ecuador. Hugo has 
played every major tournament in 
South America and is a fine court 

Jimmy Maskas will also be in his 
first net season at Northwestern. 
He is the only Louisianaian of the 
NSU team, and he hails from 

The coach for all these guvs is 

Johnnie Emmons. Coach Emmons 
is a Northwestern grad, he earned 
All-Gulf States Conference in both 
football and baseball for the 
Demons and was enshrined in the 
Northwestern athletic Hall of Fame 
in 1973. 

As the tennis coach, he is 
responsible for the production of 
two all-Amerians, Ricardo Acuna 
and Greg Manning. 

He also led the netters to the Gulf 
South Conference tennis title in 
1975, and a number five ranking in 

the nation in the NAIA. 

This year, Coach Emmons will be 
looking to carry NSU to the TAAC 
Championship and possibly even a 
trip to the NCAA tennis cham- 

And there they are, the 1981 NSU 
men's tennis team. Another in the 
long line of dynasty tennis teams 
being produced here at Nor- 

Their first home tennis match is 
Saturday February 28th at 9:30 
a.m., so go out and support them 
and watch a little bit of history.

Intramural basketball got un- 
derway this past week with what 
must be a record number of teams. 
There will be one women's division 
with ten teams playing. There are 
two fraternity divisions, and three 
independent divisions with eight 
teams in each. 

In the women's division there 
were four games last week. The 
Oldies, but apparently goodies, 
defeated UnKappa Fifth 49-35. 
Don't wory about the Oldies this 
season, they have the services of Pat 
Pierson, who was more famous in 
her playing days with the Lady 
Demons as Pat Nolen. Pat led the 
Oldies with 25 points. In other 
womens games TNT, led by Cindy 
Wigley, defeated Tri Sigma 37-14. 
Un Kappa 2/5 's took a 24-19 win 
over the VIP's. Regena Barnes, 
with 14 points, led the Uniques to a 
47-26 win over Phi Mu. Cindy 
Duke led Phi Mu with 13 markers. 

There were plenty of men's in- 
dependent games last week. The 
fraternity league will get underway 
this week. 

Jones and Herbert led the Last 
Minute Decision team to a crushing 
37-12 win over the Sonnets. Chris 
Marshall of the Jocks scored 16 
points as they took a 43-18 decision 
over Conine No. 2. The University 
of Yang had three men in double 
figures, Joe Cunningham, Ben 
Ledbetter, and David Sailors, as 
they breezed to a last second 44-42 

victory over the Hawks. Richard 
Kaufman and Lester Davis lad the 
Kingpins No. 1 to a 25 point win 
over the Chaplan's Lakers. Donny 
Harrison led the Lakers with 10. 

Cheap Trick took a 50-34 win 
over the Kingpins No. 2 as Cheap 
Trick's Guelde, Copeland, and 
Lavespeare all were in double 
figures. A couple of NSU quar- 
terbacks led the way in a 38-12 
Disciple win over the Jumpshots. 
Eric Barkley had 18 and Stan 
Powell ripped in 10 during the win. 
Brooks and Waugh had a dozen 
each as they helped Quick Silver roll 
over the Southern Pirates 49-24. 
Dan Cochran's 21 points was not 
enough to stop Zapp from taing a 
47-38 victory over East Rapides. 
Leading Zapp in the win was 
Mathieu with 17 and Smothers with 
16. After a halftime tie, the Rapides 
Knights came out with a big second 
half to defeat The Third Force 36- 
31. Charles James led the Knights 
with 13, and Eichenhofer led The 
Force with 10. In the last game of 
the week Living Proof took a forfeit 
victory over the Boss. 

In Miller 1-on-l semi-finals action 
Ullesses Frank took a 9-7 win over 
Randy Lavaspere. In the only 
women's 1-on-l game from last 
week Kathy Tinsley defeated last 
years champion Cindy Wigley 10-6. 
Both the finals of Miller 1-on-l will 
be held at the men's game against 
Nicholls State.

Bienvenu Gives 
Recruiting Plans 

By Kevin Greene 
Sauce Reporter 

The big question this week seems 
to be "What would you do to in- 
crease enrollment at NSU", 
however, the question put to NSU 
president Dr. Rene Bienvenu was, 
"What is the administration doing 
to increase enrollment". The answer 
to that question seems to be quite a 
lengthy one. 

First of all states Bienvenu that 
"We have set up two committees. 
The first committee will concentrate 
on the effectiveness and inef- 
fectiveness of our recruiting 
program." The second committee 
will concentrate on what can be 
done in the Natchitoches area to 
make it more attractive to 
prospective students, because "the 
students need to get off campus 
sometimes", and, "the night life 
here is limited mostly to the spot on 
Highway 1." 

According to Bienvenu the 
Natchitoches area is a part of 
Northwestern that is not stressed 
enough when recruiting students. 
He feels that the small town, down 
home atmosphere present in this city 
is more apologized for than ap- 
plauded for in recruiting. "I think 
we have a chance to take advantage 
of a beautiful environment." 

Another committee has been 
formed to try to find out what 
improvements need to be made in 
the area of high school relations. 
Some students feel that high school 
relations are not perfor ming an 
aduquate job so a committee has 
been formed to look in to possible 
areas of improvement. 

Another area of recruiting occurs 
mostly during the summer months. 
"We're trying to bring every student 
organization on campus", says 
Bienvenu, siting the various 
organizational camps, such as 
cheerleader and band camps, 
sponsored for the benefit of giving 
high school students the chance to 
come eye to eye with Northwestern. 

Bienvenu stressed many times 
that personal contact is an im- 
portant factor in getting students to 
come to Northwestern and that 
camps such as these offer that 

personal contact. He stated that, 
"We are trying to increase personal 
contact with faculty, staff, students 
and townspeople" in an effort to 
make NSU a more pleasent place to 

Atheletics is another integral part 
of recruiting that should not go 
unnoticed. "The atheletic program 
that we have here is doing a terrific 
job. Our football team is ranked 
eighth in the nation." Bienvenu 
thinks that we should sell that point. 

Bienvenu also stated that our 
basketball program, under the 
direction of head coach Wayne 
Yates, is most definetly improving. 
Another item that is present here 
that Bienvenu says is "undersold" is 
the NSU Recreation Complex. "We 
have a beautiful recreation complex 
and I think that we should sell that 
point more." 

Bienvenu stated, though, that he 
just couldn't buy Northwestern as a 
pub. "Northeast is the fastest 
growing school in Louisiana and 
there is no alcohol there. ' ' 

One of the biggest things that the 
administration is doing to increase 
enrollment is the ad blitz currently 
being engineered along with the city 
of Natchitoches. This program 
which starts in the early part of 
March, includes radio spots, 
television spots, and everything else 
right down to bumper stickers for 
every car on campus. The theme of 
the blitz is "NSU The Place For 
You", and the theme for the 
students is to "Recruit One Per- 
son". The campaign which will be 
held until the late part of April is 
the biggest attempt to recruit 
students in a long time but its effects 
won't be realized until at least two 
years from now. 

What is the big KEY to recruiting'' 
Bienvenu states that the biggest and 
most importand role in recruiting is 
the student He also stated that he 
would like to hire a freelance 
recruiter, someone who gets paid to 
sell a school to prospective students. 

In closing Dr. Bienvenu stated 
that the efforts being made would, 
"start us on selling NSU and 
Natchitoches. We've got alot to sell. 
In the past we just haven't sold it 

Frisbee Weather 

In the continuing story of Louisiana weather 
oddities, warm, even hot weather hit the NSU 
campus after last week's snows, therefore 
bringing out the short pants and frisbees. 

Here, Pete Petrowski (back to camera) at- 
tempts some fancy frisbeeing with a toss 
delivered by Ted Broyles. Hopefully, warm 
weather will continue throughout the week. 

Mayor Begins NSU Publicty Drive 

Students Give Ideas For 
Enrollment Increases 

By Sonja Henry 
Sauce Organizations Editor 

"We need a higher quality of 
students. In the past few years, this 
has been known as a ... low income, 
low intelligence school", stated 
Mark Matthews, a second semester 
Senior, in response to the Sause's 
student survey on "What do you 
think could be done to increase 
enrollment at N.S.U.&" 

Cliff Eddy, a second semester 
freshman said, "Orgies once a 

Lytt Allen, a second semester 
sophmore had an interesting 
revelation, "Improve the quality of 
food. Last week I found an ant in 
my drink. ..Then I bit into my

terrible. I looked inside and found 
half a caterpillar". 

Keith McCormich, a second 
semester Senior echoed the most 
popular reply, "Improve the

Jeannine Cheatwood, a second 
semester freshman commented, 
"More visitation hours. If the 
people aren't mature enough when 
they get to college, they never will 
be. They aren't our babysitters. 

The need for additional ad- 
vertising was voiced by several 
students. "I never even heard of this 
school before they sent me a letter, 
and I only live 150 miles away", 
stated Ricky Merit, a second 
semester freshman. 

Debbra Martin, a first semester 
Junior, suggested, "Better ad- 
vertising and recruiting. We have 
the best athletic facilities, but we 
don't recruit the best 
athletes ...More things should be 
done to center activities around the 

Many students thought that an 
improved social atmosphere at 
N.S.U. would attract students. 
Bobby Hebert, a second semester 
Junior said, "Discourage people 

from going home on the weekends 
by scheduled activities on the 
weekend instead of on weekdays.". 

"Get the SUGB to get us a Pub

By David LaVere 
Sauce Editor 

With a slogan of "The Place For 
You Is NSU", a goal that aims to 
"recruit one student" and ap- 
proximately $10,000, Natchitoches 
Mayor Joe Sampite and other 
community "friends of NSU" will 
soon kick-off a publicity campaign 
for NSU that will hit 15 Louisiana 

Dressed in a blue Northwestern 
pull-over sweater, Sampite ex- 
plained that Northwestern is im- 
portant to the Natchitoches in fact, 
Sampite says "NSU is the most 
important industry in our area bar 
none." With this in mind, Sampite 
and several townspeople have 
designed a campaign to begin in- 
crease enrollment at NSU. "We've 
seen enrollment drop at NSU year 
after year. Something has got to be 
done. If we can just recruit one 
student. If out total next fall shows 
that we have one student more than 
we had last fall, then our campaign 
can be called a success." 

According to the mayor, the 
publicity campaign will last from 
March 1 to April 10, "with a blitz 
between April first and tenth." 
Members of the community will join 
with members of NSU in promoting 
Northwestern is 15 parishes. The 
parishes are: Natchitoches, Red 

River, Sabine, Vernon, Caddo, 
Bossier, Winn, Bienville, Rapides, 
Beauregard, DeSoto, LaSalle, 
Avoyelles , Grant and Jackson. 

Sampite states that the campaign 
will go all out to recruit students for 
NSU. The campaign calls for special 
radio and TV announcements done 
by the Voice of Northwestern, 
Sheriff Norm Fletcher. Advertising 
and support for the school will be at 
all levels. Besides radio and 
television, phone committees will set 
up, letters are to be written to 
numerous high schools in the 
parishes, yard signs will soon make 
their appearance in the city, 
billboards about NSU will be ap- 

pearing along the highways, 
bumperstickers will be made, ad- 
vertising will go out with the alumni 
mailouts, and Randy Pierce has 
even wrote a song about NSU. 
According to Sampite, no possible 
aspec of recruiting will be ignored. 

Calling for participation from the 
people of Natchitoches and from 
the students, Sampite stated that 
"the students will be the final key 
touch to the situation." Sampite 
encouraged NSU students to write a 
letter to their high school seniors 
and urge them to come to NSU. 
then the downward enrollment 
trend could be considered at a halt 
and the campaign could be deemed 
a success. 

Spring A ttendance 
Counted At 5443 

Connection high school kids who 
come up here until the fall. Their 
ransom would be their registration 

Overall, the opinions expressed 
were a mirror of what students at 
N.S.U. would like improved at 
N.S.U. Things that they, as 
students, would like to see in their 
university. And as we all know, 
when the college kids get together in 
hometown U.S.A., the discriptions 
that they paint of their university 
plays a major role in the enrollment 
of that university. 

A grand total of 5443 students is 
the official count for attendance for 
the Spring 1981 semester announced 
bythe Registrar's Office this past 
week. This count is a decrease of 79 
students from the Spring semester 
of 1980. 

There are 4205 total un- 
dergraduates, and 1238 graduate 

Female students still outnumber 
the male students by approximately 
1.5 to 1. Total female students are 
3167, total male students are 2276. 

Total full-time students numbers 
at 3009, and 2434 is the number for 
part-time students. 

The Freshman class is the largest 
with 1705. Seniors are next with 
951. Juniors come third with 785,

Cross Concert Nets $8500 

TKE House Burglarized 

We took in approximately $8500 
in ticket sales at the door and ad- 
vanced combined," were the words 
of Ron Thomas, on the funds made 
from the Christopher Cross concert 
Thomas is the president of the 
Student Union Governing Board 
Dismal words because the Board 
will now have to go back and cut 
away at their overestimated Spring 

In an intereview with the Board 
President last week, Thomas states 
that the Board was hoping to make 
enough money at the Christopher 
Cross concert to make up for the 
$4575 mistake. In order to do so 
approximately $12,000 would have 
to be made on ticket sales. 

Although a good crowd showed 
up for the Cross concert not enough 
people paid the $6 admission price 
So the Board, sometime in the near 
future, will have to take the 
proverbial axe to the 1980 Spring 

Of the approximately $8500 
generated in ticket sales, $5500 has 
already been spent (as stated in the 

Cross contract), and that leaves the 
Board with about $3,000 to work 
with. However, Thomas state that, 
"we don;t know how much of that 
$3,000 is going to be eaten up by 
other expenses... so we're waiting 
for bills to come in." 

That leaves the Board with even 
less money to handle the budget 
with and that means budgets within 
the Board will be cut considerably. 

In other SUGB business, Max 
Ates and Kevin Bartholomew, both 
SGA Representatives to the Board, 
reported of the massive recruiting 
drive which is being speerheaded by 
Mayor Joe Sampite. Bartholomew 
reported that the SGA was fired up 
about the propositions put before 
them, and that even though the 
recruiting blitz was outlined on 
paper, the wheels have already 
begun to turn. 

Bartholomew also added that the 
effort would be co-ordinated with 
High School Relations in an attempt 
to persuade potential students to 
attend NSU. 

Max Ates made it clear that he 

A break-in at the Tau Kappa 
Epsilon (TKE ) fraternity house 
early Sunday morning netted the 
burglars over $2000 worth of 
property and cash, reported the 
University Police. 

According to Sgt. Frankie 
Cutright of the University Police 
who investigated the burglary, an 
unidentified amount of cash was 
taken from the pin-ball machine, 
about $30 was taken from a filing 

cabinet, and a stereo component 
valued at approximately $2000 was 
also stolen. 

Police have no suspects at this 
time, but an investigation is still in 
progress. Descriptions of the 
component have been distributed to 
pawn shops and police forces 
around the state. 

The burglary came on the heels of 
a party that was held at the TKE 
house Saturday night.

Relations was performing well

"High School Relations are going to

In the area of New Business, 
Angela Guillory, heading the 
Lagniappe committee moved that 
$25 be alloted as a donation to the 
American Heart Association. The 

money is being donated to sponsor a 
CPR workshop for certification, to 
be held on March 10, 17, and 24. 
The workshop will be held in Rm. 
240 of the Student Union from 7-10 
p.m. on the mentioned dates. The 
motion carried. 

Only 12 people can attend the 
workshop per day, so early 
registration is requested. To 
register, simply go by the Student 
Union office, Rm. 214 and pick up 
an application form.

Demon Connection Attracts Curious Students 

^On Wednesday, February 1 1 , the 
Student Union building was filled 
with troops of curious, observing 
high school students who were here 
for NSU's Demon Connection 
Vocational Exploration Day. 

For the past 3 years, the High 
School Relations department has 
been planning and carrying out 
Demon Connection, but this year's 
Exploration Day was organized by 
Curtis Wester, director of Ad- 
missions. According to Mr. 
Wester, 3 thousand invitations were 
sent out to high school juniors and 
seniors to allow as many as possible 
to visit NSU's campus, talk with the 
department heads, and see what in 

general goes on at NSU. 

The various departments set up 
displays depictive of what they have 
to offer, with representatives at 
each table to answer questions and 
given out informational pamphlets. 
The Psychology department's 
display included a bio feedback 
machine and a slide show on 
"Adjusting to the World," and the 
Biology department attracted in- 
terested students with its display of 
caged animals. 

When asked what she thought of the 
various displays, one student 
commented "They're neat!" 

A large number of students at- 
tending Demon Connection were 

from Natchitoches Central High 
School, many of whom were in- 
terviewed said they had already been 
planning to enroll at NSU after high 
school. A senior from Rapides High 
School who was evidently pleased 
with The Demon Connection told 
Sauce reporters that he was con- 
templating attending NSU to study 
computer science. 

Following The Demon Con- 
nection were two Career Choice 
Sessions, lunch and a concert by the 
Entertainers in the Ballroom. 
Students were also entertained by 
the Cane River Belles, the 
cheerleaders, and the Speech and 
Drama department .

"Thank you." 

"You're welcome." 

Is this familiar? If you go to 
school at NSU, it should be. Does 
anyone ever stop to wonder about 
the people who provide this service 
for the NSU Campus? 

Monday through Friday, from 8 
a.m. to 4:30 p.m., the Centrex (the 
telephone office) is staffed by two 
operators, Mrs. Velern Michell and 
Mrs. Patsy Vails. 

Mrs. Mitchell will celebrate her 
fifteenth anniversary with NSU 
March 7, and Mrs. Vails celebrated 
her ninth anniversary as an NSU 
operator February 3. 

These two ladies perform a 
variety of services for NSU by their 
constant attention to the swit- 
chboard. Giving out student, 
faculty, and departmental listings is 
only part of their job. They also 
transfer calls all over campus, and 
assist long distance operators in 
locating students. 

In addition, Mrs. Mitchell and 
Mrs. Vails often receive less routine 
calls. "We've given out street 
directions, the time, and someone 
called once, wanting to know how 
to get a date," recalled Mrs. Vails, 

Phone repairs, installation, and 
maintenance are handled by three 
South Central Bell repairmen: 
Felton Gates, Floyd Laroux, and 
Melvin Veidos. These men are in 
charge of maintaining proper 
service of all the phones in the NSU 
system. They check in with the two 
operators by nine ever morning to 
check on reports of phone trouble. 
If any phone has been reported out 
of order, repairs are begun im- 

From 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. on

The staff and student workers at 
the Centrex have offered a couple of

telephone usage. 

You must dial "9" to get an 
outside line before dialing "0" for 
STAN-card and collect calls. 

Only students living in dorms are 
listed on the rosters in the Centrex. 
City information carries the listings 
for off-campus and married 

The Centrex staff and student 
workers would like to take this 
opportunity to say a big "Thanks" 
to all of the patient people at NSU. 
Current rosters were not available to 
the Centrex until Monday, February 
9, instead of he day the dorms 
opened. Until then, last
